The question in question is How to role-play serious characters?
Editing history: I acknowledge my first attempt to formulate the question was unclear and needed editing.In my view it was not because I did not have a specific thing to ask about, but rather because I did not get the point across the first time.
Since my first editing attempts in response to suggestions in the comments I decided to start from scratch and re-worded the complete question. I spent a lot of time and thought on it and think it is quite clear now. Also some people have expressed the same opinion in the comments.
What else can I do to get the question re-opened?
