MALCOLM My liege,
They are not yet come back. But I have spoke
With one that saw him die: who did report
That very frankly he confess’d his treasons,
Implored your highness’ pardon and set forth
A deep repentance: nothing in his life
Became him like the leaving it; he died
As one that had been studied in his death
To throw away the dearest thing he owed,  10
As ’twere a careless trifle.

    king Duncan stand up with pride as he says his lines because he’s the king and as he asks the question to his son maybe he could put a facial expression of curiosity because he’s asking a question. Malcolm should stand up with pride as well but still show respect to Duncan because he’s Malcolm’s father plus the king. maybe Malcolm can use some hand gestures as well. he could do a facial exspresstion of shock as he tells Duncan about cawdors death to show how surprised he was about it.
