    As an actor whose ventured into the

    professional world, I can say, from my experience, the best actors are the ones who always strive to learn more. Any actor who tells me they have nothing else to learn, is a failed actor. "Never ever fool yourself into thinking you have nothing new to learn" -CJS

    I Am Marlowe

    Acting is getting away from home without really going too far... It's an outlet for me. I've been ranked one of the top stage actors in my province. It's good, considering I'm not that old and haven't been acting all too long. I've played large parts in theatre plays, and small...

    I guess it's only part time

    but I don't rely on it to make a living so I can be a bit more relaxed about it and not stress when I don't get a part. It's a challenging and enjoyable experience.
