The workplace is highly varied, and actors need to be flexible with regard to where they work and the type of environment they work in. Those prepared to work in all kinds of different situations and who are able to adapt to their different environments will be more successful in finding their niche. An actress is responsible for translating a writer’s ideas into a full-blown character with a unique set of gestures, accent, body language, movement and even trademark dialogues. This can be done on stage, radio, television, video or motion picture productions to entertain, instruct or inform an audience. Depending on the script, an actress must interpret comic or drama roles through hours of rehearsing, training and studying real-life people.
