How to become a Successful Actor.
Attitude is Key in this industry! An actor must always be professional and leave problems at home! Don’t discuss your personal life to other actors or at auditions. An actor must always be training and critiquing their craft! The best way is to take classes and workshops. Remember Stage and Television are two different styles of acting. Stage actors are very expressive and everything they do are big and loud! Television acting is much more focused towards the camera not an audience! An actor should be very versatile and be able to play many different roles.
New Actors must gain experience in the industry by working on different productions. The best way to gain experience is to visit a website called Mandy.com this is a very valuable site that you can register on and apply for student films and projects such as commercials and theatre shows to build up your resume! It is so important to show your agent that you are investing time into your craft!
Actors always ask why should I work for free? The actual question you should be asking is why shouldn’t I work for free! Experience is everything in this industry! The more experience you have and credits on your resume will help you become the actor that you were born to be!
