As in any industry, it’s easier to have an earlier start. But some actors who’ve been in the industry their whole lives can get in a bubble, Sturges said; having other life experiences can work in your favor. Also, some actors who started earlier in life can become jaded after being in the industry for a while, Sturges said. Maybe they didn’t reach the level of fame they wanted or don’t feel they should have to audition like everyone else for certain roles. That leaves more opportunity for someone with more energy who is just starting out later in life, Sturges said.
