Perhaps one of the most thought of questions that goes through ones head in a
lifetime may be what drives a person to become an actor. Well, it could be
imagination, a love, or just desire to stand out. When one desires to stand out
they usually want to be in the light, and the stage is a great place to start.

Being on stage for the first time is scary and yet exciting. Once a person has
experienced this they most often want more. Usually a person of this stature was
always entertaining or performing for friends and family member, thy have humor
and it is most likely well developed and focused. Through their childhood they
force themselves to be noticed. They love to be "in the light". Love, just
love for the art can make a person act. The people who love the art are usually
the ones who care and understand it the most. Perhaps they can be considered the
scarifiers, the one who will do anything to make the audience laugh, cry, and
giggle, feel solemn, angry, and happiness. Their love for acting make them who
they are and they donít even have to try. The ones who love acting become
their character in a performance. Becoming a character is tough, except for
those with excellent imaginations. Usually become actors because it comes easy
to them, of course, their feet must get wet into acting for them to even begin
to see their hidden talent. Once in a theatre, imaginers, if you will, are
character in actors shoes, instead of actors in characters shoes. They have high
concentration that is not easy to break. In fact, most usually become their
character a week or so before a play. As one can see, these tree examples are
just a few reasons why people become actors or actresses. Iím sure one could
easily choose which example they fall into.
