Acting Your ReasonWritten by Brittney L Dunn
As an actor, you must be open. There is no one-way to act. Basically, you will have to read, observe, learn, and gain knowledge in several different approaches, and then you may pick and choose what you like and come up with your own method, that will work for you.
However, you can make one definite decision now. What are you in it for? If you are in it for love, chances are you will have greater odds of success.
But, if you are in it for other reasons, (fame, money, etc.) you may not have as strong of a chance, because passion is not there.

It takes a very strong and dedicated person to pursue a career in acting. After all, you are doing it because you love it.
You couldn't imagine doing anything else. And of course, not many people will understand this.
Some people cannot understand why anyone would want to do something with such an unpredictable future. But you know it is you future, it must be.
No one can quiet explain that feeling that you get when you perform. One of most exciting things about acting is that you can be or do anything that you want. All worries and sorrows disappear. The stage is a very relaxing place. It's your home. You learn, grow, and develop there, as an actor and as a person.
The members of audience come to be entertained and/or educated. They are living out their fantasies through your character. Therefore, your portrayal of character must real and truthful.
