* Producer Ross Robinson is notorious for this approach. The most infamous example is Music/{{Korn}}'s song "Daddy", where singer Jonathan Davis starts crying at the end.[[note]]They would go on to record two more albums with Robinson before Jonathan decided that he's had enough of the producer.[[/note]] Then there's "Pretty Lush" by Music/{{Glassjaw}}, where you can hear him shattering the glass in the vocal booth. He also threw lit candles at Music/TheCure and insulted them for not making music as good as they used to.[[note]]Which singer Robert Smith apparently took to heart, prompting him to push himself even harder[[/note]]

* During the dubbing of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'', Kira's voice actor Creator/MattHill actually asked the vocal director to [[GroinAttack kick him in the crotch]] to make his crying sound authentic. Fans more than appreciate his dedication, especially since it worked (and was head and shoulders above Creator/SoichiroHoshi's "[[{{Narm}} dying horse]]" crying).

Similarly, in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'', Creator/ScottMcNeil's BigNo was achieved when he thought back to the most painful moment in his life, when his wife accidentally knocked over his motorcycle with the family minivan.

Enforced Method Acting is a cinematic concept in which the actors and actresses of a work give reactions that are unplanned and unscripted or are otherwise made to genuinely experience the emotions that they are expressing on camera. This can occur for several reasons:

* Another actor does or says something that causes the actors he's working with to react in an unplanned way -- usually by trying not to [[{{Corpsing}} burst out laughing]]. The directors decide to ThrowItIn.

Compare with ThrowItIn and ActingInTheDark. Since the associated shock and strong, often negative feelings make shooting a traumatic experience, this often requires a {{Jerkass}} director, or at least one who doesn't mind their actors hating them. FatalMethodActing is a lethal case of this. Contrast LostInCharacter. See also HarpoDoesSomethingFunny.

* In ''Anime/TheIdolmaster'', Haruka and Miki were in the running to take the lead role in a musical. Miki was a shoo-in for the lead role due to her energy, but this came at a time where the 765 idols were drifting apart due to schedule conflicts and couldn't meet up all the time. Haruka's desperation to keep them all together in little moments, as well as her inner suspicions of being TheFriendThatNobodyLikes, is what gives her the edge to do the lead's speech about broken dreams and self-doubt.
