This article is about characters' inner monologues. You may be looking for characters speaking directly to the audience.

Talking Heads (occasionally referred to as a "confessional," an "aside," a "to camera,"[1] or an "interview") is a scene in which a character provides an inner monologue by speaking their thoughts to a camera outside of the timeline of the actual show, adding to its reality-styled quality.

Description

In Talking Heads, a character is seated in front of a camera with a brick wall in the background. Occasionally, their name and title — i.e. type of dancer, who they are in relation to another person, etc. — will be displayed as a caption at the bottom of the screen, written in white on a purple box.

During Talking Heads, the given character reveals or confesses their thoughts outside of the occurrences of the actual show. This acts as dramatic irony, as this causes only the audience to know something about the character that is not known (or is yet to be known, in some cases) by their fellow characters.

It has been long disputed by fans whether this element is meant to convey a character's thoughts while in a scene or whether it is merely meant to lend itself to its mock-reality genre.
