The Low-Pay Dilemma – a Psychological Perspective

Greetings!

If you will, please imagine the following:

Another unemployed day, another bloody empty day. All this morning has been spent in a low-level malaise as you contemplate the inherent irony of the term ‘jobbing actor’ You have this achingly persistent feeling that life is passing you by while you do…well, this! Not to mention the cash

On Leaving Acting… From The Other Side

To the actors who read this, I implore you to adhere to the philosophy of this fine website and have a moment of honesty. How many times have you considered doing ‘that’ in your career? Yes, you know what I’m getting at – THAT! When was the last time you considered, and whisper it if you must, quitting acting? Perhaps you declared your intentions in a moment of frustration after that tampon commercial never materialised. Or maybe it was a slow burn – that niggling feeling that there must be more to life than trawling through The Stage once a week and screaming at your agent. You just know there has been some terrible mix-up at the ‘life factory’ and that you’ve been dealt a lousy hand unbecoming of your talent.
