Recognising The Importance Of The Season You’re In

Whether we’re working in a big production or helping a friend rehearse lines, we as actors need to remember that every step we take is just as important as “making it big time”.

It’s fairly easy to forget that our journey is special, which means that each opportunity is valuable regardless of our popularity, so it’s good to remind ourselves to take a step back and reevaluate our circumstances so we can gain some perspective. 

Yes, becoming a famous actor is the goal for many, but that doesn’t mean we need to be discontent with where we are at right now. 

YouTube channel, theoffcamerashow, posted an interview with Don Cheadle where Cheadle talks about how every part of our acting endeavours is important and even, if we’re not on a set, we can still be acting. 

This video is helpful to both seasoned and budding actors alike, to gain perspective for our current circumstances, as well as inspiration to keep pressing into our craft.
