Owning My Tourette's Through Acting

Acting is a discipline of discipline. Hit your marks, nail your lines — it's all about control and timing. Gardiner Comfort is an actor who was diagnosed with Tourette's syndrome as a child. For Comfort, it's all about owning his disorder. "When I'm acting I don't tic. It kind of just goes away and says, 'Go ahead and take a break, do what you love, and I'll be waiting for you when you come back.'''
