Soft you; a word or two before you go.

I have done the state some service, and they know’t.

No more of that. I pray you, in your letters,

When you shall these unlucky deeds relate,

Speak of me as I am; nothing extenuate,

Nor set down aught in malice: then must you speak

Of one that loved not wisely but too well;

Of one not easily jealous, but being wrought

Perplex’d in the extreme.


I decided to play the role of Othello.

I learned to play the role of Othello that in this scene you have to have a strong toned voice but a hesitant one as well. He is dying in this scene and these are his last words so playing the role of someone close to death is difficult. You have to pace yourself so your not going to fast or too slow making sure its the right pace and a good performance.

Understanding his emotions were easy, but acting it out was difficult because you knew he was in so much pain. At the same time he was heart broken from the loss of his true love, but as you spoke you filled into the role as you tried to take in the pain as Othello felt.
