Why do I want to become an actor?

Posted by on Aug 4, 2018 in BLOG


I have thought long and hard about this question, for many years. Why do I want to become an actor? Do I want #attention #fame #power #money ? I suppose. But understanding that those ideals will not bring such happiness, I took a deeper look into myself. There has to be something more…

I want to be an actor because I would like to live. Not live in its purest form, but live through the experiences of characters going through experiences I may never have. Living through different families, different careers, different relationships, different characters, excites me! That gets me going! Seeking knowledge of the world that surrounds us, helps me create a value system; taking the principles that guide these characters in build my own ideology.

These characters help me. I need them as they need me.

Life is about experiences. Good, bad or ugly, isn’t a life full of experiences, living life to the fullest?
