Acting – Have you got what it takes?


Acting is a big industry. There are actors everywhere from the theatre to films, from TV to radio, and even on the street in the form of mime.

Acting Lesson To Be An Successful Actor


Successful Actors Advice to anyone who wants a career as an actor. Be on time. On a big film the money is going out the door at about 30 grand every 20 minutes.
