I’m an actor who’s exchanged the possibility of a grey but reliable corporate career for a disreputable life speaking other people’s words. This passion/perfectly timed midlife-crisis survived drama school training and is now being tested by the reality of actor-life; hunting for work, surviving auditions, the anguished waiting on my agent’s call and wondering how I’ll feed the kids after Christmas.
Yet I’ve never felt more alive. And, recent TV and film roles suggest that maybe, just maybe, there’s hope.
If you’re interested in more details the Honest Actor’s podcast is a great place to start. Especially this one featuring me being a bit too honest.
One day, when asked what I do, I will confidently say that ‘I’m an actor’, but let’s not rush things.
