What It Takes To Be A Fulfilling And Working Actor.
You might not be working enough as an actor. You may not even know how to get there since the industry may be hard to get into. Or you might already be a working actor and not get the jobs that you want. Consequently, you may feel unfulfilled. And you chose this acting career because you’re passionate so pursuing or actually living your career should fulfill you. If it’s not fulfilling you, there’s something misaligned that you should look at.
You may hope to be a successful working actor without taking action or you may even be taking a lot of acting classes, doing casting director workshops, reaching out to casting directors and renewing your headshots and reel; and yet feel unfulfilled and frustrated.
However, when you watch my training below you will discover that you do have what it takes to be a fulfilled and working actor, which is to BE a unique human being. You are already unique. You were born unique, free and instinctive. However, you were raised in a traditional environment, culture and education system where you were asked to repress everything that’s unique about you and to follow what you were told to do. You were trained out of your uniqueness and freedom. Everything in our culture is about behaving “correctly”, pleasing others, not expressing your emotions in public, not following your impulses and not being yourself. All of these things take you away from being an artist.
Therefore, in order to be a working and fulfilled actor you need to undo that conditioning and train yourself back into the real, true and unique “YOU”, which has been dormant for decades since you were asked not to be you, but to be like others. Being an amazing artist is something you can’t learn from anyone or any method. A masterpiece comes out of you being truly, freely and uniquely YOURSELF. However, if you try to be a good actor or please the director, you’re not being fully yourself, just being a generic version of yourself. That can’t ever fulfill you, even if you’re booking non-stop.
When you’re able to show up 100% present, alive, free and authentically you; casting directors and directors will want to work with you because it’s a rare commodity and you will feel fulfilled.
