What's My Line?
In the process of learning a role, either on stage or on film, one of the most important aspects is committing the script to memory. Actors are expected to recite pages and pages of dialogue. If the actor loses their place or just blanks, they'll call out, "What's my line?". This halts the rehearsal or production process and can kill the momentum. Actors must constantly study to improve themselves and their craft. It's not a job for the timid or anyone who lacks confidence.
