Hello everyone

It's been my experience that sometimes actors find it hard to cheat the eyeline, and sometimes it might not even feel natural.
I'm curious as to what kind of techniques you guys tend to employ to get past having to cheat the eyeline, although I realize that sometimes there is no way around it.
Thanks
