    I recently just got into acting

    and I must that it requires critical analytical skills as well as thinking outside the box. When the movie, "the dark knight" was in production. Heath Ledger, who played the infamous Joker, locked himself up in his motel room for one month to prepare for his role (real...

    Exit Stage Left....

    I have always loved acting.  I first stepped on stage at the age of 8 in a school play.  Since then I have been hooked on acting.  I have a diploma and a degree in acting.  I even moved to the capital of my country which is the arts city of New Zealand...

    I can act like any character I know from any

    shows or stories. I often play those acting games with my best friend where we act like a certain character we chose for each other for about a week or even a month anytime anywhere. I often got stuck with the creepiest, insane or most perverted character for some reason...

    I love, love, love plays

    and I would love to act on stage in a broadway musical or something like that. Honestly, I'd rather act in a play than be a film actress. I could picture it... The composer strikes up the band as the curtains slowly open. I'll be singing my heart out and dancing. I'd put...

    Acting's My Passion

    I definitely want to be an actress when I get older. In fact, I read pretty much anything 'monologue' material out loud. It's been one of my favorite things to do, since I get to put on so many different masks. It's like, I'm not 'me' anymore, I'm this other person...

    I Can Be Anything

    I love to experience things, and do things, and understand other people and their motives. And acting helps a lot with that. When you act you can do anything and be anyone. I love stepping into character and becoming someone else and letting all my inhibitions go and just...

    One of my dreams in life is to act,

    and, I discovered it through acting in my school. I did two school plays last year, but only got the roles of extras, so, this year I figured that I'd get a major role now that the seniors are gone, and I was cut completely. I was devastated, and then one of my friends pointed...

    Especially in high school,

    you can find yourself in playing other people. It sounds weird, but acting gave me so much confidence and helped me so much, I couldn't live without it.

    The only sad thing that there is no drama clubs where I live. Only sometimes at school I get to act out scenes in my history class. Sometimes my history teacher would let us write our own plays with a partner(s) and we could act them out in front of the class. It's really fun. I...
