My lovely husband can so relate to this
I don’t know how he put puts up with me but I’m so glad he does.
Just to let you know I am absolutely loving my weekly Screen Acting Class.
Was up for a life changing in a “small way” job this week, got a recall and extremely heavy pencil, and then at the 11th hour they “went for a different mix”.
If I hadn’t had my Screen Acting Class to prepare for I would just have been having a duvet day or week or month…[Read more]
Also Andrew you ask for honest pros and cons of pursuing this career.
I would say the bigest difficulty is actors are constantly seeking their next job and it never stops. Even when an actor becomes a series regulars in things like the Bill or East Enders these jobs don’t’ last for ever.
I would suggest taking five minutes to read this article…[Read more]
This is such a “how long is a piece of string” question that I highly recommend Simon Dunmore’s book “An Actors Guide to Getting Work”.
It pretty much tells you everything you need to know about being an actor from going to drama school, getting funding and onwards.
This book is available from all good bookstores and Amazon.
Glad you like my podcast idea Ross
I was not sure it would appeal to other Act on This members.

Nicola is an actor and presenter. As well as recently elected as @EquityUK Young Members Councillor and she was previously…[Read more]

Started going to dance classes at the age of three. Never stopped, love the feeling of being fit.
As I got older I qualified as a dance exercise to music instructor and taught for about 12 years in between acting work. Even used to teach classes at seven in the morning so I could get to auditions in London if they occurred.
I don’t teach now…[Read more]
You have convince me. I will be off to that weekly Acting for Screen class again this term.
I am sure I can’t be a terrible actor as I have CV full of professional work however as Louise says in her video even the actors at the top of their game get nervous and want to do a good job.
Musicians practice everyday, so do dancers,…[Read more]
