Actor » Overview


Actors entertain people by acting out a role using body movement and speech. Actors can specialise in a certain area, for example some may be interested in acting in movies and television, whereas others focus on theatre and stage acting.  Regardless, actors must be able to tell a story and portray a character convincingly. For this reason, successful actors must be good at memorizing their lines and cues, yet they should also have a good imagination and the ability to empathise with the role. The ability to play a wide variety of characters will increase an actor’s chance of success in the industry.
