There are two types of “typical days” for an Actor: one where they are on set or actively preparing for a role they have booked and one when they are trying to secure future work. Depending on the day and success of an Actor, they may even do taped auditions in between breaks on set. Often, though, Actors can experience long stints between gigs while they continue to audition for roles. An Actor must make sure that their professional life doesn’t take over their personal life. For instance, it’s easy to spend an entire week learning lines or otherwise preparing for a role to the exclusion of their other day-to-day needs until their meeting or audition has happened. They may also spend considerable energy and time waiting for that phone call from their Agent or Manager about a potential callback or offer.
