Job Information

  • Actors endure long periods of unemployment, intense competition for roles, and frequent rejections in auditions.
  • Formal training through a university or acting conservatory is typical; however, many actors, producers, and directors find work on the basis of their experience and talent alone.
  • Because earnings may be erratic, many actors, producers, and directors supplement their incomes by holding jobs in other fields.
