I must disagree up front with the overt criticism and vilification of Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old actress (and daughter and granddaughter of actors) who looks as though she being manipulated — and fed her lines — by adult climate profiteers and alarmists who know full well what they are doing.
I watched her speech to the United Nations; her facial expressions and emotions come across as rehearsed and fabricated, much like those of an inexperienced thespian trying to play a difficult role. Even experienced actors who lack special training cannot, for example, portray convincing villains because it is clear that their gestures and emotions are rehearsed as opposed to genuine.
A skilled actor who knows the story can often improvise a performance for a specific scene even if he has not been given a script for it. "Greta Thunberg without a script to read from" suggests, on the other hand, that she does not really know the story and cannot play her role without a script. She punts at the end by saying, "I think you should give some questions to the others as well."
