I've been watching Season 6 of LOST this week. I'm going to experiment with the facial expression and eye contact that you see with Ben Linus, Jacob, Saiyd Jarrah, Richard Alpert, Desomd Hume, Charles Whitmore and "John Locke". That strong, sure stare.
I'm going to use it when I make the transition from indirect to direct. I invite others to do the same.
