An actor is a person who pretends to be someone else, for entertainment purposes. Actors, who are sometimes referred to as both actors and actresses, often appear in films, television and theatre. Acting is considered to be a glamorous job. Actors learn scripts and pretend to be another character, in order to tell a story which may or may not have happened. When people pretend to be someone else really well, they can win awards for it. The Oscars is the most famous award show for acting. In 2019, Olivia Coleman won a ‘best actress’ award because she pretended to be a Queen from the 17th century and everyone was so impressed with how well she did it.

How do you become an actor?

If you want to become an actor and are still in school, try going into theater. If there are theaters in your community, become involved and audition! Educate yourself through your schooling and learn about the business of contracts. Practice, build up your resume, and if possible, hire an agent. Also work on skills that will help you in your career such as communication, creativity, memorization, and persistence.

Which actor and actress has won the most Academy Awards?

The actress who has won the most Academy Awards is Katharine Hepburn, earning 4 wins and 12 nominations. She has won best actress for the films, Morning Glory (1933), Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner (1967), and On Golden Pond (1981). The actor who has won the most Academy Awards is Daniel Day-Lewis, earning 3 awards and 6 nominations. He won best actor for the films, My Left Foot (1989), There Will Be Blood (2007), and Lincoln (2012).

What is method acting?

Method acting is a training and rehearsal technique that in which actors create an honest and expressive performance. This technique was developed in the early 1900s by the Russian actor and director, Konstantin Stanislavski. Stanislavski encouraged actors to create a natural performance that gave a contrast to the traditional theatrical and heightened acting style of the time. Actors who have used method acting are Christian Bale, Jane Fonda, and Leonardo DiCaprio.
