  • Why are pornstars so DTF?

    Pornstars are so DTF on videos like they just hop into it and don't care when the man does to them even if it's smack them in the face. Why are they so down to ****!

  • Do Abigail Williams and John Proctor kiss in the Crucible?

    I'm playing John Proctor in a performance in my Youth Theater and I know they kiss in the Movie, but I'm just wondering if they do in the actual show/script/play.

  • Applying as an extra with no experience?

    Hi, Im 21 and I ve always been interested in film and acting. Im from nyc and I looked on backstage and found roles for extras as college students. Would I have needed any acting experience to even consider applying? I ve also never done a headshot photograph before. Any advice? Thanks

  • I feel like giving up? Acting.?

    Best answer: People who think acting is being discovered, working with famous people, having fans and proving people wrong-they usually get discouraged and give up because that's not what a real acting career is.

    Best answer: People who think acting is being discovered, working with famous people, having fans and proving people wrong-they usually get discouraged and give up because that's not what a real acting career is. That's all a fantasy and eventually they have to face reality that no one is going to just give them an acting career.

    But people who really love the craft of acting, can always have that in their lives. They can take acting classes, do school shows/community theater, compete in speech/drama forensics, start an improv group, do student films, create their own projects and many other things. And they can continue those type of things even with a different career.

    And some people who love acting will research and learn the business end of the industry and give that a try. They won't expect someone to give them an acting career, they'll take that responsibility for themselves understanding they're basically starting and running their own business.

    Which type of person are you?

  • How can I improve on my acting?

    Best answer: You can't. For a start, no-one can teach themselves or learn to act alone. Acting has to be taught as part of a class, as it's all about interacting and reacting to the other characters. Online classes are useless.

    Best answer: You can't.
    For a start, no-one can teach themselves or learn to act alone. Acting has to be taught as part of a class, as it's all about interacting and reacting to the other characters. Online classes are useless.

    But more importantly, do you realise that on average it takes seven years of attendance at a good acting school and of singing lessons, and of dance classes, and of regularly performing with a good youth or community theatre before you could expect to be good enough to be signed by an agent and get any auditions for professional work?
    No agencies or casting directors would be even remotely interested in a kid with no real training and no experience.

    All the kids you see on TV have been at acting school since they were about 6 years old.

    I'm sorry, but you don't understand anything about acting at all.
    If you really want to be an actor, join an acting school and be ready for years of very hard work, But you wouldn't get any real auditions until you're about 21 or older.

  • Do Theatre Actors Sign Autographs?

    Best answer: Most do, but if they are a famous actor, they might only sign programmes of the show. I worked with one actor and we had over 200 people waiting outside stage door after every performance. Many were autograph hunters who just collected autographs and sold them on ebay. These were refused and he would only sign... show more
    Best answer: Most do, but if they are a famous actor, they might only sign programmes of the show. I worked with one actor and we had over 200 people waiting outside stage door after every performance. Many were autograph hunters who just collected autographs and sold them on ebay. These were refused and he would only sign for those who had seen the show and had a programme. If he signed photos and dvds of films he had starred in, he would have been there all night.

  • How do you get the directors attention when auditioning?

    Best answer: You will have their attention when auditioning - they'll be watching you and what you can do. They want to see how well you understand the character and find out if you match what they're looking for in the role. Remember, the people auditioning you are on your side! They hope you're right for the... show more
    Best answer: You will have their attention when auditioning - they'll be watching you and what you can do. They want to see how well you understand the character and find out if you match what they're looking for in the role. Remember, the people auditioning you are on your side! They hope you're right for the part so they're going to see what you can do.

    But of course, a lot more goes into casting a role beyond an audition. They consider schedules, who they feel has the skills to work as an effective team member, who is dependable and reliable. They think about who works well with others and who looks "right" with the other people being cast. They need team players. At a more professional level -they're looking for actors who know what they're doing and don't expect some special accommodations or need everything explained to them (aka they're looking for professional actors).

    So instead of worrying about getting someone's attention when you audition - focus on showing them who you are as an actor and what you an do! Think of an audition as a mini-performance rather then some type of contests. It's a chance to do something you love! Be in the moment and show them your take on the character. Even if you don't that particular role, maybe the director will remember you for future auditions.

    Best answer: It is EXTREMELY challenging to attempt a professional acting career. People invest a lot of money in their productions and they trust that investment to trained and experienced professional actors. There are not a bunch of open audition you an go to in the hopes of being discovered or something. For most professional work you have to be invited to audition, usually through an agent. And you can't just hire an agent, it's more like they choose you. And there are a lot more people who want to be actors then there are roles. For example, there are currently over 100,000 professional, union actors just in LA. There are tens of thousands more across the rest of the country and thousand more internationally established actors. That's not counting the hundreds of thousand wannabe actors who haven't reached the professional level yet. And every acting job is temporary. Getting one acting job does not guarantee you'll get another acting job any time soon. There are one-hit-wonders in acting just like other industries.

    So it's not enough to just be talented and get quality training and experience - it's show BUSINESS. People are in it to make money, not make your dreams come true. You'll need to understand the business end of things - contracts, unions, taxes, marketing and networking. You're basically starting and running your own business where you are the product to be marketed and sold. So we're talking a huge investment of time, effort and money with no guarantee that you'll ever get a main role let along "make it".

    What has to be done to achieve your goal depends on what your goal is. If you're hoping for fame, money, attention, to escape a boring life or something like that - then you'll be disappointed. The chances of that are extremely tiny. Most professional actors don't support themselves by acting alone, let alone make it big. If you're passionate about the craft of acting and love the process and would want to do the work even if you never made it big - then you start by getting quality training and experience. Make sure you are love the craft of acting (auditioning, analyzing a script, building a character, memorizing lines and blocking, taking direction, rehearsing, working with a cast and crew as well as performing). And make sure you are exceptionally good at it. Then research the business end so you understand how that works and don't expect someone else to do that for you. This would be YOUR career and you'd need to take responsibility for it. And finally, know yourself well enough to set realistic goals and come up with a plan to work toward them.

    There's no one way to become an actor. There's no set of steps to go through to be an actor. There are no guarantees that if you work hard you'll reach your goal. So if that's what you're looking for then maybe an acting career isn't for you. That doesn't mean you can't try acting even if you're not going to attempt a career. It's a lot of fun, a great way to meet people and learn life skills.
