“My most intimate feelings can be radically externalised, I can literally “laugh and cry through an other”.” – The emotions I feel and “feign” as part of my screen persona are not simply false: although (what I experience as) my “true self” does not feel them, they are nonetheless in a sense “true” – the same as with watching a TV mini-series with canned laughter where, even if I do not laugh, but just stare at the screen, tired after a hard day’s work, I nonetheless feel relieved after the show.
