Significant Information: Actors, Producers, and Directors




  • Actors endure long periods of unemployment, intense competition for roles, and frequent rejections in auditions.

  • Formal training through a university or acting conservatory is typical; however, many actors, producers, and directors find work on the basis of their experience and talent alone.

  • Because earnings for actors are erratic, many supplement their incomes by holding jobs in other fields.
