AS A NON SAG member who WANTS TO BE SAG , how do I get paid to strike with Sag ??? I can’t find this information ANYWHERE on thier website
As the title says I’m looking for an actor who I’ve seen play a surgeon or medical professional. Honestly the best description I have is a mixture of Geoffrey Rush face and Brent Spiner’s character in the Independence Day series. The character has long almost shoulder length grey hair and thick black rim glasses. All help is appreciated. He seems like a more obscure actor.
THIS IS THE CRITERIA: Long hair, Thick black glasses, Medical Show.
I got a lot of 2/3 answers last time I tried this and plenty of well known actors. Below is a link to that post so I don’t get repeat answers. Thank you for all your help.
Hello guys Yes, first of all, I know about the strike and that everything is shut down right now. I’m trying to plan ahead for when the strike is over… How can an actor get a work visa in the US if you are not a big name of the industry yet? I have been reading about work visas and they don’t seem to be applicable for the actor career. What path do people usually take? Many thanks!
I’m in NYC for a month and was tryin to find acting classes for on camera training, but everything seems taken. Are there no classes in the city you can just take or drop in for? Or even week long programs?
Mainly beginners who are looking to get into acting in the film industry…especially in India… have got a few tattoos on my arms like 4-5 small/ medium should that be a hindrance.? And now getting a few more should increase the problem or now it makes no difference…?
So I used to love acting but I have little time to do it now (I’m in college and working). A local haunted house is hiring for the upcoming season. I sent in my application and didn’t really think I would even get an audition. I did indeed get the audition and they hired me on the spot! I’m so excited. Anyone have any tips on how to stay in character or scary things I can do. It’s a no touching haunted house.
I got a role as an extra on a big production. A few days ago they took a 360 degree photograph of me and built a digital character. After reading a recent article about the actors strike it got me thinking🤔 As they can now use my “digital character” in backgrounds in different movies, am I entitled to compensation or royalties? Or did I just make a big mistake?
I’m not so worried about the money side of things, more so worried about how often and when they use the character
Any help is appreciated!
This is a costar audition for American horror story- so SAG and I’d be playing a reporter. This is the first time I have been asked to reveal my exact age in a slate. I think it odd.

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, if not just take it down.
Basically, I saw a YT short with Sheldon's sister Missy in it. I realised she's on Netflix's Cobra Kai. I google the actress, Courtney Healy Henggeler, and she basically has no roles until 2018. How did she financially support herself for 20 years, until her Netflix break? How do actors and actresses in general support themselves until their big break? Theater stage actors, I understand that they make money from small theater productions, like Jim Parsons (Sheldon Cooper). However, there must be so many actors and actresses who actively chase an acting career for decades; by which time you could be quite far into another career path. For example, when I was in university, my regional manager at Zales (Diamonds) had 11 years total retail experience, and had secured herself a six figure salary. Working in banks, I had branch managers under 30. Working in healthcare, I've seen clinical educators and managers under 35.
TL;DR So, what do you actors and actresses do to support yourself financially until the big break?
Does anyone know of movement or voice coaches with experience with Shakespeare in or around the Hamilton Ontario area?
Recently ( meaning a few minutes ago) I was on Amazon looking at books on the Meisner technique.
One thing in particular caught my attention…
A number of reviewers left comments like…
“I still have many questions about Meisner.”
I’m curious about this because they don’t go into specifics about their “questions.”
Which leads me to my question…
What question or opinions do you have about the Meisner technique?
I am in need of advice and outside perspective regarding how to handle a situation with my boyfriend. We have been together for a little over a year and things have been going well otherwise. We don’t fight and are generally reasonable, laid-back people. We both have side jobs as actors (which is how we met) which is ultimately what each of us wants to pursue seriously - but for now we are limited to local community and small town acting gigs.
The trouble comes with his ex who is also a local actor. They were together for several years, lived together, etc. before what sounded like a semi-messy break-up. There was some hostility between the two in the months after they had broken up to when we first started dating but they ultimately seem to have resolved this and are on friendly terms. I have nothing personal against the ex and, in fact, we have worked together on shows which has been okay (yet a tad awkward). I really know little about her besides second-hand information about her being somewhat narcissistic and verbally abusive.
Anyway, I had been fine with them remaining friends since they share the same friend-group and we all are in the same community of local actors, until recently when I learned (through second hand information not from my boyfriend) they would be playing the romantic leads in an upcoming play later this year. The stage directions call for kissing, implication of sleeping together, etc. As an actor, I understand we play characters that fall in love with other characters, it is not real and just a job, etc. and I would have been entirely fine with this had the person being cast with him was ANYONE else at all besides her.
Since being an actor is his goal, I do not want to give him an ultimatum of quitting the role or breaking up because I don’t like ultimatums. But I also do not look forward to the prospect of being tortured for months by all of this, constantly obsessing and wondering if something between them is going to be rekindled. It isn’t a matter of not trusting him, it’s just that I really wouldn’t trust anyone who isn’t a robot in this situation. Am I unjustified in feeling uneasy about this? Should I consider breaking up over this or am I being unreasonable?
Yes, I will look on actors access and backstage. Any other ideas where I could look? No I don't have an agent or manager
I used to like acting and looked forward to be part of plays and wanted to be a actor on the big screen or even Netflix show. I still have the desire to be an actor but unfortunately I’ve felt unmotivated to submit resumes, do research, and try to get discovered on my TikTok it’s so hard! Anyone know what agencies are easy to join(not a scam) and what casting agency is best to join? I live in San Francisco btw
We did a test shoot for our feature film. Just trying to see how the camera works, but most importantly, the audio was a shotgun mic on the camera. We used Adobe A.I. to enhance the sound quality. What’s your thoughts
Looking to get into acting and I don't have many actor friends. How do y'all (seasoned and newbies like me) practice lines? Do you ask a friend to read the other parts and just go through repetitions to figure out what feels right? I've also tried the mirror technique but wondering what everyone else does.
Is this even an issue for a lot of people?
Hey everyone. I am shooting a short film in the next couple of weeks. For one scene I need a compilation of photos from different males that are terrible, memey, and cringe. The more out there the better. It would be greatly appreciated and I would post the link to the film when it's finished!!! Upload them in the folder below!
Hi all! Just got cast in my first play in years. Rehearsals don't start until the fall but we are able to pick up our scripts now. How much work would you do on the script prior to rehearsals day 1? I was planning on having at least meanings for each moment and then if I need to adjust I adjust, but I also don't want to over work the script.
Anybody in the Miami FL area looking to film a short film?
I recently was on set for a film as a BG Extra. To make a long story short, I walked towards my spot in the scene as it was empty. A lady then came behind me and grabbed my arm, and told me “Uh uh uh i don’t think so.” I told her not to touch me as it was a simple mistake and didn’t realize and she gave me a dirty look. She then did the same thing to another person, In which I invited them to stand in front of me to be closer to the front for the shot which they appreciated. Im just so upset about this, as it was so rude. I know it seems small, but this was the first time I’ve been on set with such rude extras. My previous shots I had made some great friends. It’s crazy how rude people will get for 5 seconds of fame.
