If the part demands any kind of emotional drama (for example, coping with a death), an actor often researches people who have experienced what the storyline depicts in order to realistically understand and convey the emotions involved. An actor’s workplace will vary depending on the type of production involved. Some film and television shows, as well as most advertisements, will be filmed in studios and on sets. This can be quite exciting in itself, seeing how a location can be created by set designers and made to seem real. Other film and television shows are filmed on location and might involve a lot of travel – sometimes to distant and exotic places.
