    Acting Quote:

    “The problem is not that acting is hard. The problem is that there are over 100,000 members of SAG-AFTRA, and only hundreds of jobs”

    (David Carradine)

     

    (The late David Carradine points out the reason why a successful acting career often proves elusive for many actors. Work is sporadic for most actors because the level of competition, especially for major markets, is extremely high. Hundreds of actors competing for each role creates winners and losers, or rather one winner and many losers. Those who lose out for an acting role must muster the patience and perseverance to look for and compete for the next available job opportunity.)
