The third and last misconception that I am going to list is that a lot of people think that acting is easy. Maybe they know they watch movies, they watch television shows to see play and think okay I can do that come on I can put myself in that situation. Do exactly what they did on the stage. But that it is actually a life long process what you see in the film on TV and on stage is only the tip of the iceberg everything else underneath is a whole process. So for someone to say that they can go out take an acting workshop they think it is great if they are really interested and go ahead and do it but the thing that afterwards you can go out in an audition for pieces is why 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 are not ready even if you think that you are ready, if you are not ready you go out there audition for directors they probably will remember you because it is a small community. And when actor say that they are constantly growing it is completely true you are always learning something about yourself about a new technique and as actors you are multi task as well. You think about your voice, projection, the lighting, your position, you think about ten things at the same time so it is really important just really appreciate what actors actually do.
