Careers in Acting
Careers in acting are very varied. There are many different
careers in acting that you can pursue. Obviously, you could become an
actor or an actress. Even if you decide to become an actor or an actress,
though, you still need to decide which direction you want to take your
career in acting.
You could be a film actor, a television actor, a commercial actor,
a stage actor, or a voiceover actor. There are many different possibilities
of careers in acting as an actor. But there are other careers in acting
that do not require you to act. In fact, if you have a background in
acting, there are all sorts of careers in acting that you can pursue.
You may want to become a director, a playwright, or a producer. If
none of these careers in acting interest you, do not worry, because
there are certainly more. You could find a career involved in theater
management, marketing, design, technology, crafts, or audience development.
If you are considering careers in acting, you may very likely want
to get a theater and drama degree. What’s more, in addition to
a theater and drama, you may want to take classes in business (show
business is, after all, a business), education, English, computer science,
psychology, telecommunications, film studies, fine arts, education,
and music performance. Depending on what sort of career in acting you
want, these classes could really help you.
So, if you decide that you do not necessarily want to be on the big
screen or up on stage as an actor but you still like the business of
show business, remember that there are plenty of other careers in acting.
