An actress who was paid a high salary

While earning a degree may help you develop your craft and prepare you for a career as a working actor, there is more than one way to become successful in this role, and that’s part of what makes it so difficult. It’s a competitive field, where people face a lot of rejection, low paying work, and irregular scheduling. Education-in any form-pays off here, as even beginner actors are expected to know the industry basics, from auditioning to being in front of a camera.
