That having been said, today’s actor does much more than just perform. Reading and interpreting scripts, memorizing complex lines and movements, rehearsing for hours on end, perfecting warm-up and cool-down routines, and auditioning again and again are all part of an actor’s work. Additionally, extra work is often required anytime an actor takes on a particularly difficult role; this could mean anything from developing a specific accent or movement style to undertaking intense physical, vocal, emotional, or holistic training. As any actor knows, the preparatory work and the performance are not separate—they are two parts of the same process.
