This is quite a complicated answer but...sort of:
It is hard/stressful for most people to become an actor; without a pool of resources to draw from, living somewhere like London you need to earn money. That usually means having a job and then going home to do all the other work to maintain your acting job because the work is quite fleeting ad your job has to be somewhat flexible. It requires a lot of perseverance to breakthrough to a point where you're earning enough for it to be your full-time job. I'm not there yet. Most people I know aren't either.
However, I do get a little bit bored of actors that feel the need to have a constant pitty parade about it. There's a Facebook group called the Hustle and it's basically full of actors moaning about how acting is the hardest job in the world- to steal from Bill Burr: "Have you seen Ice Road Truckers?" Ultimately, in my opinion: If it's too hard....quit. Just quit, no one forces a person to become an actor. In fact, we already have too many people trying to do it. So, it is a hard profession but it's not like having polio or being an oppressed minority, so stop complaining and just get on with it. There are plenty of jobs I would rather not do. Acting isn't the hardest job in the world.
BQ: I have quite a kind face. So I often get cast in roles as weird characters with an element of pity. My favourite things to play are extreme emotional turns and people with inferiority complexes. I like to smash stuff up, and wave my arms about basically. I also love a good costume.
