One of the best inspirations to starting actors


One of the fears that a starting actor/actress is facing, is the fear of being denied a part. Don’t worry, this happens to everyone. This happened to those, whom people admire on screen today.

In particular, it happened to Hollywood star Mark Ruffalo, who openly admits he’s been through all this, and look at him today.

So, the best advise to cheer you up when you’re struggling to get auditions? Learn from Mark Ruffalo (from Castingworkbook):

“It’s been mythologized now but it started with about 600 auditions without success. Most smart people would have quit when it takes that long.”

To refresh your memory, after being rejected 600 times, Ruffalo landed parts in such movies as: “The Hulk”, “The Avengers”, “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”, “Shutter Island”, “Zodiac”, “Collateral”, and many more.

No matter what your motivation is, the movie world is so big, there are always parts an actor can play. There’s no need to be a Mark Ruffalo to become an actor.
