Actors gain from meeting famous people, networking on set, and meeting other talented people. In addition to performing, I’ve been able to secure other jobs. Another advantage is the ability to select whatever roles you want to play.
In most professions, you are simply given a task to complete and must complete it every day. Being an actor gives you the freedom to reject or accept parts that you don’t think fit you, or that you don’t like or a show’s cast/crew that you’ve investigated and found to be unsuitable to work with.
Naturally, as an actor, you’ll want to take every part that comes your way at first in order to create a résumé and material for a strong demo reel. You may choose whatever personas you wish to play once you’ve progressed past a certain level and your résumé is beefy enough and you have all the video you need.

The drawback is that actors spend so much time away from your family. Because they commit to a part, I’ve missed birthdays, communions, and even family trips to the Bahamas. Once you take the task, you must do it regardless of the circumstances. I also turned down a couple of excellent jobs in favour of my family. Finding the right balance is incredibly tough, especially when you’re doing something you genuinely like. In order to stay married and keep my husband happy, I had to think about my family and be content with turning down some extremely excellent paying roles. Actors utilise a variety of memory techniques to recall lines, blocking, cues, and lighting. These techniques stick with performers throughout their lives, assisting them with schoolwork and work multitasking.
