10 Things I’ve Learned About Being An Actor Since Graduating

A few unsolicited articles came in to honestactors@gmail.com last week. Here’s one of the best…

 

Here is a photo of me, in June 2010. I am wearing a green Karen Millen dress complete with matching heels that my Mother bought for me, I have had my hair professionally blow dried for the occasion. There I am, proudly clutching my 2:1 BA(Hons) Acting from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama – with absolutely no fucking idea what was supposed to happen next. If you look close enough I’m sure you can see the panic in my smile.

Waitress/ Party Princess/ Actress

What you were doing at 12.30pm on Saturday 25th July? En route to a matinee you’d rather not have been doing? Taking a brunch order from a table you’d rather not have been serving? Or, were you – like me – squatting behind a bush trying not to be seen by a group of children playing nearby?

Money, Stability & Validation: One Out Of Three Ain’t Bad

Why am I an actor? No, really. Why? It certainly isn’t for the love of money or stability.

There are many things I’ve found challenging since I entered this profession 5 years ago: the precarious nature of our work, the the whole not being an actor so I can be a waitress and pay my rent, and a range of other obstacles and inconveniences that could all be brought together under the banner ‘Coming To Terms With How The Business Actually Works Because Drama School Doesn’t Prepare You For It’. But I’ve found that one of the hardest things about being an actor is the need for validation.

Gary Lucy’s Arse: Now Showing At A Regional Theatre Near You

The Anonymous Actor returns …

His first article was so ‘chuffing brilliant’ (Daily Mail) that I’d have been a fool not to invite him back. This time, Gary Lucy’s arse gets the once over. But in an intelligent way, that makes a point. Gary Lucy’s arse is just there to get your attention.

The Anonymous Actor

The Anonymous Actor is an actor who was asked first to be interviewed, then to write a blog. Now he wants to remain 100% anonymous. What do you mean “I said ‘he'”? Oh, yes, I see. He’s a he. I can tell you that much. All else is shrouded in mystery. And anger. Mostly anger.

The Anonymous Actor – Being an Actor Stinks. Get on with it.

The first of the guest posts is offered anonymously by someone who declined to be interviewed when I asked a few months back, but who remains a keen supporter and promoter of the podcast. If you think that doesn’t add up, read on.
