There are so many. An entire generation of beautiful 27 year olds who all want to be actors.
But there's nothing inherently interesting about that. No reason why a casting director or an audience for that matter will give a shit.
The best actors quietly go and do the work. They just get better and better and work really hard. They get three lines in a movie but they really really work on making sure they have it nailed.
But most aren't like that.
Becoming an actor is something everybody does. Becoming a professional is only done by the few. What do I mean?
Every actor gets sexy headshots, but only a handful return phone calls. Every actor hits the 'apply for casting' button, but only once in a blue moon do they turn up on time for rehearsals.
The fame or celebrity doesn't mean anything. I know celebrities, and they all know it's fake. An illusion. But even if you want it, it's a by-product. Too many actors think they're celebrities waiting to get big.. so they walk around with a sense of entitlement, like they're something a little bit special.
The professionals just do the work. Quietly and dilligently make sure they're prepared. They put in the hours.
Talent is cool, it's useful. But more important is the hard work. You've got to act, got to train, got to create your own projects, got to watch a lot of acting. I know actors who say they're too busy to watch films. They're not very good actors.
