The play I chose was Othello, Act 1. Scene 3, Lines 86-104. The character I played was Othello.

What I learned about the tone was you had to speak with a deep voice. You also had to speak slow and have feelings like you care; you had to speak with pride, calm.  

When Othello talks about Desdemona, he has to speak lovingly. You can’t talk fast, and you should also stop between every line. 

As I was performing, I understood that Othello was proud he took Brabantio from Desdemona.
