The answer, in most cases, you don’t have to! It is not necessary for you to list your exact weight on your acting resume. For most actors, it’s not likely to make a difference at all.
Why is that? Well, because most of the time your general weight can easily be seen or approximated.
Casting directors can determine your physique, based on your headshot. The shape of your face, neck and upper body can be seen in your headshot and can provide sufficient clues as to your weight.
Secondly, for in-person auditions or callbacks, your weight will be obvious. Assessments can be made rather easily during a live audition.
When in doubt, always ask your representative if listing your exact weight is important.
Third, whereas having a specific height is sometimes really important (because casting directors have to match actors of differing heights), having a specific weight is rarely important for most actors. When it is, actors are often asked to fill out size cards that ask for a specified weight.
But, when in doubt, always ask your representative if listing your exact weight is important. Your agent might place a higher premium on your weight, based on the types of roles they are submitting your for.
