Example Answer:- "I am motivated by meeting set targets within deadlines, as it gives me a sense of accomplishment and it's something that I can look back on and say "I achieved that".

About Actor and Actress

August 17th, 2017

Actors and actresses portray characters in the performing arts and various media, including theater, film, and television. Depending on the part that they play, they may interpret a written script in order to convey information to the audience in an engaging or entertaining way. Actors typically do not find full-time work and the hours are long and irregular. They work in film and television studios, on stages, on filming locations. Some actors travel with a touring show. A degree is not required, though taking courses on drama or attaining a degree in theater arts may help. Actors and actresses can also take classes and engage in long-term training to enhance their skills and abilities.

The interview will assess the actor or actress' range of dramatic and acting abilities and work experience, and will typically involve an audition in which the actor performs a 'cold reading'. The main objective in this interview is to determine whether the actor is able to demonstrate the qualities needed in the role that you're applying to portray. This involves a combination of several factors, including physical appearance, ability to convey and evoke certain emotions, physical acting, and verbal acting. Depending on the nature of the role, improvisation may also be integrated into the interview. Memorization, reading, and speaking are important skills that'll be assessed during the interview.

To prepare for this interview, an actor or actress should familiarize themselves with the role and how the character fits into the production. When possible, you should research the director and/or writer's body of work and see if there is a common theme amongst the actors or actresses that are chosen for a role that's similar to the one you're applying to. Look for an acting style that seems compatible with that body of work.
