The profession of acting has been maligned throughout the ages. The actor has been considered foolish not only when he was clowning on stage but even for having chosen to be an actor - a vagabond or hobo strolling through life without importance or worth. He has been denied burial ground and has been accused of prostitution and other varieties of immorality, egomania, vanity, ruthlessness, hypocrisy, toadyism, to name a few. Even when his gifts were recognized as extraordinary, his talent was looked upon as an accident of nature. When the public turned him into an idol, they treated him like some rare species behind bars. They poked into his private life and examined every detail of it with the audacity and curiosity they might have exhibited while watching monkeys at their most intimate moments in the zoo.

What If Love Scenes Make Your Mate Uneasy? →

I had this issue with the last guy I dated. He did not want me to do love scenes. His particular compromise was that if I were to kiss anyone in the script, the director would have to hire him.

Needless to say, we didn’t last very long.

However, I do agree that talking it over with your partner is essential whenever a role like this comes up.

How Booking the Part is Like Landing Any Other Job →

Summing it up in a sentence: “You get the job, not your work.”

While this may seem frustrating to those of us who train (and train hard) it’s true that sometimes the crew will like a person so much, that they don’t care what his work looks like, or if he has experience.

Leave Your Outside Emotion Outside of Rehearsal →

Just a reminder that acting is a job, just like any other. Well, not JUST like any other. We rely on our emotions, and to fully feel our feelings always. But when you step into the audition or rehearsal room - use it or lose it!
