    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.

    Actor On The Greatest Stage Of All, The Stage Of Real Life

    Sometimes i watch awards shows on TV such as the Emmys and Oscars, and chuckle over all the excitement and hoopla. Who will be declared the "best" actor and actress, who portrayed a fictional character with the greatest degree of believability?? These fictional actors are...

    Ambitious Actor No Roles

    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

    A couple of months ago I was selected to join a

    talent agency for my acting! I was overwhelmed with excitement. I am lucky enough to have my family and friends supporting me 100%! I have yet to land the role of a lifetime and catch my "big break" but I know it is out there and it will come to me when I am ready!

    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...
