Interesting Facts about the career

1. To gain more money, actors or actresses have to work not only on the film set, television, stage, or even video, they can be seen working on the theme parks, nightclubs, and cabarets.  

2. The recognition as a big star is not easy to get.  Most actors have to work hard to make their acting job steady. You should never think that a big actor with wonderful experience will always get the main part of a movie. Sometimes they have to work as a cameo 

 3. Sometimes actors have to suit the script. With a little preparation on camera, they have to memorize all lines. 

 4. If you like a steady job, it seems that you cannot be an actor. You have to sacrifice the weekend and evening to work.  There will be many performances and shows that actors and directors should do in the weekend because they can get more spectators. 

 5. Being a good actor, you need to notice on good physical shape. The weight of heavy costumes should never bother your performance. You need to endure the heat produced by the studio light. Thus, actors and actresses should be physically healthy.  

6. If you want to be a good actor, you need to have sufficient training. You can land in the acting work by having a practical program as an actor.

 7. An actor is also known as a thespian. This term originated from the Greek performer, Thespis. Thespis is a performer from Icaria, who revolutionized the art of acting. He is widely credited as the first performer to act as a character in the play or production. His first-ever performance occurred sometime in 534 BC on the famous Theatre Dionysus. 

8 Contrary to popular belief, an actor’s paycheck does have several sources aside from just the salary they get from the movies they make. Their other financial sources would also come from endorsements, advertisements, and even modeling jobs.


  • Ancient facts about actors

1. During medieval times, the female population was barred from ever performing on stage.

 2.  Back in the day, an actor can be called an actress, while an actress can also be called an actor.  

3. Historically, men have played the roles of women since acting became a serious profession and there is no doubt that they received some recognition for their efforts in this particular field. However, it seems women are also doing well in terms of playing the role of the opposite sex.  

4. Actors initially started performing on stage. Throughout time, the art, along with the profession slowly grew. Part of this development was that actors and actresses now have various “stages” to perform on. Technological advancements have made it possible for the audience to view their favorite entertainers in mediums of their choice.  

5. Singing and dancing were the only skills you needed as an actor back in the days.


  • Facts you should know before considering acting as a career

1. If you want to get through those first difficult years, you have to work at it every day. If you leave it to chance, you’ll always be able to convince yourself that you will have time to do those mailings, make those calls, and read those trades “soon.” You have to start by scheduling at least an hour every day that you’re working at your business—and it’s a business.

2. If you thought college was hard, wait until you hit the real world. What I hear from former students most often is, “I knew it was going to be hard. I just didn’t know it was going to be this hard.” This business is not for the faint of heart. It takes a lot of hard work and belief in yourself to even feel like you’ve gotten a hold of the bottom rung of the ladder. Learning to be patient and wait your turn are skills you can work on every day.

3. The whole manager, agent, casting director system is set up so that many, many people have vetted you before you get in front of the person who will actually decide to hire you: the director, producer, or both.

4. At a certain level, any of the five people up for a part could do a good job in the role. Are you someone I want to be in a rehearsal room with for a month? A movie set for six months? A TV series for seven years? It takes time to build a reputation. The way you do that is by treating everyone with respect and trying your best to do good work.

5. Know your type. What kind of role do you want to play?
