“Don’t be too conscious of what the next move in your career will be. I’ve seen many actor friends turn down a lot of gigs because they think, ‘Now I’m a big actor. I can only do these kinds of movies.’ Well, they often just stop working.” ~ Neal Patrick Harris, star of HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER.
Which do you want be? Working and happy or not working and resentful?
I’ve seen the same attitude with actors who haven’t even started working! They turn down auditions, opportunities, agents because they think, “I’m better than that.” They are not working either.
Work begets work. Turning down acting opportunities begets sitting at home and fantasizing about working as an actor and resenting those who are working.
Success = Preparation meets Opportunity. Be in class. Be prepared for any audition when it comes. Take every opportunity to act you can – you never know what it will lead to.
