So you would like to be an actor?



The first step is to figure out why you want to be one.

Ask yourself, "Why do I want to be an actor?"



If you want to be rich and famous, that can be a long and difficult road that requires a lot of luck.

But if you want to be an actor because it is fun, or it brings you joy, or you like entertaining others, then this could be the right choice for you.

  6. I would like to be an actor because being able to take a characters emotion and make an audience feel something after seeing it would be really cool. Also it's always seemed fun to get to be someone else for a while. Acting is important to me because it something I truly love doing. Even though I haven't really had any acting roles other than acting out scenes in my bedroom I find it to be really enjoyable. Another reason acting is important to me is because it helps with my self confidence, it encourages me to step out of my comfort zone and do things I wouldn't normally do. I would love to explore all the fields of acting (maybe except horror I think I might scare me to much filming it, haha)but if I would have to chose one area of the profession I would choose drama/romance in film and television.

  7. Why do I want to an actor?: I like to entertain people. I love the feeling I get when I find a new movie for show I love. I want to give that feeling to other people. I also like acting because I like to pretend. And acting is pretending, right?

    What kind of actor do I want to be? Why is it important to me?: I want to be either a sic-com actor or a soap actor. I like the real-ish acting in shows like Friends or Modern Family. But I love the dramatic sinarios in shows like The Fosters or Pretty Little Liars

  11. 1. first , i feel like when i do acting , the experience and the act , everything that is going on with the director telling me what to do , the other actors working hard to spit their lines correctly , the lights all on me , i just feel alive!! and that sense you get when you finally convince everybody that you are somebody else , is so freakin orgasmic to me .

    2 . i see acting as an opportunity to tell my own stories , and to just show the world what is inside me , on a three dimensional level .

    3. i very much want to just go out there , make awesome projects , inspire some kids to believe in themselves and feel like they can do it . if i can make a living out of something i really love doing , why not anybody else ??

  17. Because when I do it well, I get lots of attention. It's fun.

    Maybe because I'm not normally very expressive or open with my emotions, so it's a period where I really have to think about FEELINGS and expressing them so that others can understand and empathize.

    I wanna be the underdog. People all agree mentally that I'm real good, but still I'm underrated. So when someone really likes me they're like, wow she's actually done a lot of good work. Good for her!
