At times during your acting career, you may find it necessary to supplement your acting income with other work.  The search for support jobs for actors can be just as important as the search for acting opportunities.  Rather than lamenting the fact that you are taking on non-acting work, I suggest that you look at this as an opportunity to grow and learn new skills — and even as a chance to apply your acting skills in unexpected environments!  What’s most important is that you find work that you actually enjoy doing.  Don’t...

You got the callback.  This is very, very exciting.  Your hard work has paid off, and you are on your way to another positive casting experience.  Really, a callback is a win in itself.  All too often actors get hung up on not actually booking a role — but you must know that to be called back is a true compliment.  Often, thousands of actors will submit on a project and only a dozen or so people (if that) will be invited to callbacks.
