Are you aware that you can be a good actor studio any moment? Do you feel as if you were born to act? If acting feels like your fate, that says a great deal about your confidence, which is something all actors need in a profession that can be hard going, even for those who’ve made it? Acting training, let alone all those auditions and casting calls, can be draining, even demoralizing, and you need determination to persevere. If you read or watch interviews with actors out there, you’ll have heard some say that from early childhood they had a need to show off, and be the center of attention. Does that mean you need to be some type of exhibitionist to succeed in the acting world? Is acting ability dependent on individuality attributes or inborn ability?
There are some that have natural ability to perform a gift for mimicry and voices have no doubt led many of them to enroll in drama school. They may be picked up from others and vigorously cultivated because they bring a child attention and approval. Also, an extroverted character isn’t necessarily the mark of a good actor. In reality an introverted personality isn’t a blockade to acting achievement and you don’t have to be a party animal. Attending professional acting courses is the route taken by the majority of booming professional actors today. Lack of professional acting training is a primary cause of career crash.
If there is a personal attribute that the best actors share, it is certainly their insight into human behavior including awareness of self and the ability to decode that into their performances if not necessarily their personal lives. The shy person, with a rich inner world, may have some advantage here. This people’s consciousness and inner reach may be partly innate, or hidden, as well as a product of our upbringing and personality, but as with so many skills, it can be honed. Method acting, for instance, provides actors with techniques for accessing inner realms, evoking sensory experiences and expressing emotion genuinely and mightily. If you love acting, do your acting now and impress the whole world!
