The Actor “Danial Hakimi” with family in the picture
Acting is not an easy career path. You can do all the “right” things (take classes, get the degree, have the big agent, etc.) and still not succeed. In fact, most don’t. So you have to love it. You have to love the struggle, all the ups and downs; you have to love being unemployed, which is what you will be most of the time! You have to love auditioning and not getting the part (statistically, for every 100 auditions you will maybe book one job). The art of acting and preparing has to fill you up so much that you don’t care about getting the prize.
