How to Become a Professional Actor: Professional Actor Resources, Advice & Training for Actors of All Ages

Acting Professionally: This website is dedicated to Professional Actors and all those who want to become one.

Why is acting the only profession where pros feel the need to introduce themselves as "professional"?

Do doctors say, "I am a professional doctor"? ... Do teachers say, "I am a professional teacher"? ... No! Yet many actors, when asked, "What do you do?" feel the need to reply, "I am a Professional actor."

Acting professionally is about much more than just getting paid for acting, and it's our purpose in this website to give you an ever-widening stream of information on what it takes, what to know, and what to do as a professional actor.

Professional Acting is also more than just a "quality" statement of how good an actor you are... there should also be a significant connection to your active pursuit of professional acting jobs, your spirited and enthusiastic involvement in professional actor training and workshops, and your thoughtful connection and contribution to the community and social network of working actors.

Professional Acting Tip of the Day: Saturday October 19, 2019

An attractive professional headshot is probably the single most important item in your Actor's Bag.

We will have much more to say on What it Takes to Be a Professional Actor across all the pages of this website and we encourage you to bookmark this page and check back often as new material will be added all the time.

One Quick Piece of Pro Acting Advice: Never stop training and socializing with other actors. Many of your most important acting skills will be learned by watching another actor's success (or failure) in class.
