To create opportunities for themselves, many Actors become multi-hyphenates such as Writer-Actor or Actor-Producer. In addition to working on their acting skills, these individuals will also write material for themselves and/or produce it with the hope that it will attract the attention of Managers, Agents, Casting Directors, Directors, Producers, and anyone else who might be in a position to hire them for a role. 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.
