The Evil Queen at Disneyland

Disney theme park cast members deserve awards for the work they do. They are acting for hours at a time, in full costume outdoors, never break character, and get paid pennies. It might beat waiting tables while you are waiting for your big break, but it's still a lot of work. (via Digg)

Obviously, she has been playing this role for a while; long enough to properly affect the persona and develop a good byplay and interaction for the park-goers.

I'm sure that, as a character spends more time in a role at a park like this, they develop a large repertoire of remarks that they can bring up, seemingly off the cuff, and use as needed.  They may say the same things (i.e., "the pleasure is all yours"; "How do you feel about Snow White?  This is a very important question; answer wisely!") seventeen times a day or more, but the odds are they are saying it to seventeen different people or groups and never to the same person or group twice.
