How you look plays a huge role in your quest to be an actor. But since you want to enter this profession, then it is a safe guess to say that you have spent all your life watching movies and TV shows, admiring actors, idolizing love teams, hating characters, loving scenes, and have probably experienced all other feelings associated with the entertainment shows. If that’s the case, then you must know that not all actors are good-looking. But if you do have the looks, then that is good for you. If you are an average looking person or no physical beauty at all, then you don’t have to worry because there are plenty of unattractive actors who are quite very successful in their acting careers.
What you need to be an actor
To be an actor, you need to know how to project yourself properly with confidence that demands attention from the crowd. No matter how attractive your face is, if you have no confidence, you will never be noticed by acting managers, producers, and directors.
Of course, you cannot be good at acting overnight. You need to undergo proper training to learn the basics of acting. If you believe you have the gift of acting, you still need professional help in order to polish your skills.
You need to run with the acting crowd, start to build connections, and eventually choose a manager who knows the ins and outs of the entertainment world. And when you get accepted in the industry, work hard to gain the trust of producers. Learn from other experienced actors, and always keep your head down and never be a know-it-all, especially when you are just starting. Use your looks to charm others to be at your side, utilize your wits to win favors, and use your mind smartly for career advancement.
