Facial Muscles: The Facial Muscles, and in particular those in the lips, help to shape the sound and air stream into recognizable speech. Visible in this image click on it , these muscles move the face in response to our thoughts, feelings, emotions and impulses. Actors work very carefully to learn how to isolate each muscle. It is useful to learn to recognise the various muscles in order to better isolate them, so that any extraneous movement is eliminated and the muscles used are those desired. Also by recognising the muscles' shape, it is easier to understand how the face is moved by these muscles.
