Screen actors may work in areas like commercials for television, TV dramas and comedies, or movie productions. Professional stage actors can be found in every major city working major theaters, dinner theaters, and repertory groups. There are many traveling theater groups in states, regionally or nationally that help in the training of actors for larger roles in places like New York or Los Angeles. Actors and actresses bring characters to life to entertaining an audience. In this career, you must memorize lines and actions from a script and perform them in the manner of the character you’re portraying.
