Actor and Actress Interview Questions
Question 1 of 25

What attracted you to begin a career as an actor?

How to Answer
The interviewer would like to see the passion behind your career choice. This desire is what will drive you, even on the most terrible days. Let your excitement for being an actor shine!

Answer Example
"I have always found the variety and sense of escapism exciting. I joined a local youth theatre group when I was 13 and always participated in theatrical productions at high school. I suppose I got to a stage when I was about 15 where I couldn't imagine myself doing anything else so decided to try and pursue a career as an actress."
Entry Level Example
"I became attracted to this career path when my father took me to the local theatre. We had a backstage pass where I could witness all of the wardrobes, set pieces in action, and meet a few of the performers. The buzz was amazing, and I caught the bug!"
Experienced Example
"I have been an actress for the past ten years. Some days are a bigger struggle than others, but I knew from a young age that this was my calling, and I will never give it up. I love to entertain others and cannot think of doing anything else. The variety keeps me on my toes."
