The third and last misconception that I'm going to list is, there a lot of people think that acting is easy. Maybe, you know, they watch movies, they watch televisions shows, they see a play and they think, “Okay, I can do that. Come on, I can pull myself in that situation. Do exactly what they did on stage.” But that it’s actually a life long process, what you see in film on TV and on stage is only the tip of the iceberg, everything else underneath is whole a process.
So for someone to say that they go out, take an acting workshop, which I think is great if you're really interested, go ahead and do it. But to think that afterwards, you can go out and audition for pieces is in a way misleading yourself. I would suggest training yourself further and then going out and doing that because that might harm you in the end if you're not ready.
But if you think you're ready, if you're not ready you out there audition for the directors, they probably will remember you because it is a small community. And that when actor say that it’s—they're confidently, confidently growing, it’s completely true. You're always learning something about yourself, about a new technique and as actor your multitaskers as well. You're thinking about your voice, projection, the lighting, your position, you're thinking about like ten things at the same time. So it’s really important to just really appreciate what actors actually do.
