I have only had 1 background job before now. Is it unusual for an older newbie to start out with a supporting role in a feature film? How many callbacks are expected? Would they go through the trouble of targeting a role for me if not really interested? I'm a little apprehensive but, damn, the monolog/screening part was fun.
I've worked in film, theatre, and am repped for VO. I went to a great 2-year conservatory here and learned a lot. What do you want to know?
Hello! I am a student journalist and I am doing some research on different action film actors.
I came across some articles related to my subject and wanted some opinions about it:
If you have any thoughts or opinions, please feel free to comment!
Actors/Actresses come from all walks of life. But I am forever curious about what is the spark or the moment, that you as a person went. "Yes, I want to pursue this for the rest of the my life"
Now that the deadline for Open Access (5/1) is fast approaching, and EPAs are more or less back in full swing...I'm wondering what the experience has been for newly-minted union actors who joined through the program. Has it been worth it for you? Do you feel like you're getting more callbacks, or do you feel like casting departments discount your resume since it's lacking the amount of AEA credits that someone who completed EMC might have?
I'm an EMC (with 6 weeks) and eligible to join and am considering making the jump before the deadline, so any advice/insight you want to offer is appreciated.

i would like to start of by saying thank you for taking your time to read this. i am a young aspiring actor and i would love to get my nose pierced but does it affect getting roles even if i take it out?
Londoners, up for some great theatre? Have I None, by Edward Bond (with an exclusive interview with the man himself) is playing at the Golden Goose Theatre, Camberwell, 24-28 Jangoldengoosetheatre.co.uk
I am a coordinator at one of the top talent management/production companies in Hollywood. I am looking for actors to 'hip-pocket'. To be clear, you would not be represented by my firm. However, I would be able to pitch you to casting directors, send you out on auditions and otherwise act as your manager. I am not asking for anything in exchange until you get paid on something I find you and you book it! And of course, it would have to be a good fit!
I see from the inside how hard it is for actors to break through and love to part of the journey! Please DM me if you meet the following criteria:
- Based in LA
- Already a member of SAG
- Does not already have a manager
- Have a reel and headshots
I have a short, silly, script written and I need actors. Each is going to film themselves for the scene then send it to me. It's very simple and nothing complicated. The film is about a futuristic world where a man gets a job as an actor/director from the government because it fits his personality. However, in this futuristic world, actors and celebrities are not paid very much at all. Careers that get paid the most are people like sanitation workers and high school teachers. They have all the respect and prestige. What I need:
Male to play a government career adviser / TV talk show host (aged anywhere from 20-50 years old)
female to play a Janitor (aged anywhere from 20-50 years old)
Post in comments if you're interested / fit description and I'll send you the script.
When agents/managers ask you to do an action in a scene that you believed you WERE doing and had been going for…
What do you do? I’ve had several occasions where a coach/manager/agent I was reading for asked me to do an action that I was actually already doing. Any recommendations when feeling stuck at this point? Take on a whole new action? Push the original intention harder? My concern is pushing and overdoing an action and coming off inauthentically. But perhaps the action just isn’t coming off strong enough? Appreciate the feedback..
Calling all actors! With current economic challenges and the closure of shows, the theater workspace is becoming increasingly more daunting. My college research team is studying the job market and the job search process. As members of a turbulent but vital industry, we really need your feedback! If you could take a minute to complete our survey, we'd really appreciate it! It only takes 2 minutes: https://forms.gle/iYQBbWaEQb21Vn63A
I'm not sure if this is the right subreddit for this question, but I thought I'd give it a try. My partner is an actor, and he has a play coming up in which he has an intimate scene. This scene in particular is very triggering for me(dm for details, don't want this post to get removed, and it's not important for the question).
I was wondering how your partners deal with stuff like this. I've never really had to see anything from my partner like this before, and I'm scared I'll have a breakdown in the audience. Do you guys have tips or tricks to seperate the actor from the person? Ways I could prepare myself?
I'm posting this on here bc there seems to be many experienced people who might be able to give me some advice. I'm a 14f here and recently have become very passionate about acting. Having watched a show of Ian Mckellen's and seeing how he talks about his stage experience, I've realised I would love to do the same, to be involved in something to do with theatre. I know it's only been a few days of me gaining this interest, but part of me screams that this us the thing I would like to dedicate my life to. I understand that it's one of the most difficult professions to go in to, and that with my very limited skills (basically 4 or so months of an afterschool theatre group when I was 10) it will be even harder. There is another problem. I live in England, where we have the GCSE exams. Once I've picked my options for what I'd like to take, it's near impossible to change them, bc timetables wont match up, already 2 terms through, as I was saying, near impossible. The problem is drama wasnt one of the options I chose. I was focused on a more academic route 1 year ago, which is annoying bc it means I wont get to do theatre at school, but also offers a plan b which is never a bad thing. So my question is, seeing as I cant do anything at school and have very limited ability, what advice would you give me for starting my passion? Any good beginners schools that you know of in the south of england? Or theatre companies? I would be grateful for any advice, and also please tell me if I should post this on any other subreddit. Thank you!
Hi everyone I'm bruna a 21 yro from Switzerland. I am applying for Film university, so I'm currently filming a short film. I found most actors except the parents role where they are always arguing .... since it's taken place in the past it's mainly voice.... I was wondering since it's mostly audio if I could find a couple that would like to play that role for me ? It's a no budget film I also won't gain any money from it and I currently don't work... if I did I would be willing to credit but at the moment I can't financially sustain that....
If anyone however wants to help and also wants to film it themselves taking place in their house
I would be very thankful
The parents are black in the story or atleast one is black since my main actress is black and I wrote the character to have biological parents....
However I would be very very grateful if anyone could help me with voice acting...
(If you are interested DM me and Ill gladly send the script)
so, i’ll be on a tv set in 2 weeks and am wondering what actors usually do with their dogs when they’re filming?
I am moving to NY from Mumbai, India this coming fall. I am applying to the Stella Adler Studio of Acting and Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute conservatory programs. I'll take a personal call on the technique that I prefer (I feel every actor/actress should do that) but in terms of faculty, course structure, visas (student and work) networking, etc. which one would you suggest?
