If you are an actor....learn to study, love and do theater.

"I'm not interested in theater..I want to be in movies!"

In other words you are not interested in acting, you just want the screen time and dream of stardom without putting in the work and learning the craft.

What do you think professional actors do between films or television series, or during the off months? They do theater. They do plays. The take theater master classes. They earn college and advance degrees...often in some form of theater arts or theater and film education.

If you are an actor....learn to study, love and do theater.

Don't believe me...check out the non-fan sites and read what working actors say to their fellow actors.

Find out more about what made them who and what they are today.

And keep the dream, but know that only one percent of union actors earn more then a basic income from their craft and only three percent earn a middle class living or better.

And many of those earn their money doing commercials, working in multiple industries (film, tv, music, teaching, voice and so on().

Learn to love theater.

Learn to love acting.
