From never having been on a set to winning an Academy Award, what does it mean to be an actor? How do you create success for yourself, and what does that mean to you? Understand that this is a business and in order to get what you want you must learn everything about it. Learn to produce so you can hire yourself. Learn to write so you can understand story. Learn how to be in front of a camera so that when you show up on set you’re ready to work.
