About Toby Jones 

One doesn’t need to say the word if one can show it. This is one of the most fundamental principles of performing arts. Many emotions are expressed in terms of action rather than focusing on dialogue. “Charlie Chaplin” is the legendary example of this technique. It is widely used in my acts. In miming, finding the words through movement is an important factor. It makes an actor more strong and concrete performer. An actor learns to do experiment with the gestures and postures rather than indulging in lengthy dialogues.
