Acting: The Most Amazing Job To Me
An Intro to the World of Acting
What Is Acting?
What Do Actors Do?
Actors usually have to audition for a role. This means the actors act out short scenes from a show, and the directors and producers decide if they are fit for the role.
Ths is the next step after auditions. Once an actor lands a role, they start rehearsing. This is where they practice for the final performance.
This is the final step in the acting world. The performance! This is when the actors get to show off all of their had work to the audience.
Basic Information About Acting
Another cool thing about acting is that there are 79,000 actors in the United States, which of most get paid $11.80/hour. What? Were you expecting crazy amounts of money? Well, your in luck, Some actors get paid $50.39. (But that takes a while to work up to). Also, the future for acting is rising! There are predictions that the average number of actors will rise by 4.1%. I also agree that the average is going to rise because more and more kids are being exposed to theater at a young age. The kids are liking what they're doing, and they continue enjoying it for the rest of their lives. Who knows? Maybe you could be walking down the red carpet one day!
