A young actor who has cancer

An actor’s working hours may be long and irregular, and may include evenings and weekends. However, there are strict rules on working hours and rest periods. Actors or actresses may work indoors in a theatre, community centre, concert hall or in TV, radio and film studios. Studio and stage lighting can make indoor locations hot. For film and TV, they may also be out on location, which could be anywhere in the UK or overseas – and could mean working in all kinds of weather conditions.
