    It's so special what acting can do

    for people, because in the moment on stage when you are becoming a different character you can forget anything that's bothering you, or hurting you and just focus on the character you're playing. I love it. I've seen shy people gain a voice, people struggling with depression...

    and I love it... Acting is my favorite thing to do. But I get so incredibly nervous performing, so that I even shake until I do a lot of practicing.

    Action Always

    The worst thing I've taken away from being an actor is being able to act like I am totally fine while being terrified inside. You'd think that skill would serve a person, but it generally is just an awful, lonely thing. Still, I Love Acting.

    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...

    It's Amazing

    I love acting because you become a whole other person. When i sing on stage i get stage fright but when i act i'm fine because i know it's not me up there but my character. It gives me a sense of freedom when i become someone else, i shed my old skin to become someone else.

    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.
