The question was: “Mr. Washington, Thank you for taking the time to do an AMA, looking forward to seeing your performance in Fences. I was wondering what is the best way of getting nerves to work for you rather than against you in a performance?”

Washington answer:

“Sometimes nerves are good for you. I still get nervous, it’s ok, that means you’re alive. The only thing to fear is fear itself, so that’s a part of it. Being fearful is a part of it, but keep going. There was a saying fall down seven times, get up eight, so just keep going. We all have fear. Believe me I have as much as anybody else and we all have to face them. Face your fears.”
