    Default What kind of acting have you done?

    In third grade I directed the play "Arthur's First Sleepover" for my class, then in 4th grade I was the firefighter for a play. My lines were "Jump, lady! Jump, lady! Jump, lady! Whoops..." So I personally haven't done much acting. How about you? What kind of roles have you played for theatre, film, or other media in school or outside?

    Never did any acting, unless you count 6th grade drama class.

    There's this casting agent (I'm pretty sure he's EIE) who's been trying hard to get me to come into his office. Apparently he wants me because he says my look is in high demand & he thinks I'll make him money. He's called me a few times & has even spoken to my mother... I know he's legit because he's gotten my IEI friend into some gigs (commercials & tv shows). He's also quite openly gay, so I know his motives aren't sexual or anything.

    I'm just too shy to get into that kind of stuff. Plus, I've never acted a day in my life and wouldn't have the first clue.

    I got invited to play a self-loathing gay man in a play once. I probably should have agreed to go, but I was too nervous. It was also a bunch of gay men (being the theater and all), and I know I'd be hit on and flirted with and I just wasn't really in the mood to be 'fawned over' like that. I mean I'm not bragging or anything. *Maybe a little*

    and like starfall im also super shy. but I could play a gay man with no self-esteem incredibly well. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA. =p

    When I was in high school, I was in a play with my friend's Mormon church youth group, and they made me play Satan. Or Ms Snake, as they called me.

    When I was in 4th grade, I played Miss Spider from James and the Giant Peach.

    I can't think of anything else.

    I love being on stage for acting, not so much for anything that actually requires precision like piano *ugh* I much prefer comedy, I have good comic timing. I did a lot of drama classes in high school, I usually went for comic or absurdist stuff but apparently I made a good Macbeth once

    I used to be super-shy, my mum sent me to drama classes because she decided that I wouldn't survive in the "real world" if I stayed a complete wallflower. Now I enjoy the adrenaline rush and the attention... it's nice for me to have attention without effort and feeling awkward about butting in

    I haven't done any acting since high school. I miss it but not enough to network my way back into it or deal with the rejection, doing presentations all the time and dancing is enough thrill/dramatic expression for me :\

    I played Santa in the first grade. Besides the multiple roles I have had since I've been self-conscious.

    In third grade I was part of the caterpillar in Alice in Wonderland. Later I played the princess's sister in The Frog Prince. I took acting from 8th thru 12th grade and played a dangerously helpful invalid, a witch, Mrs. Gibbs in Our Town, the witch in Hansel and Gretel, Mrs. Cratchit in A Christmas Carol, an insane hired girl, and Natalya in The Proposal, as well as minor rolls and characters who never got to perform.

    I was made to do all the acting I did either by my parents or by my teachers; they seem to think I'm good. Was in high school productions of Arsenic and Old Lace, some Shakespeare, Ten Little Indians, and something else I can't remember. All of them were probably really bad because the director was an insane ESTp woman.

    I was in a horrible Western play in 5th grade. I remember practicing my lines over and over and trying to speak with an accent so it might seem real. I didn't have much of a part, thankfully. I also took an acting class in college and it was not easy. I struggled with the movement aspect of acting and just looked awkward and I struggled with being emotionally expressive. I tried out for a play around this time and it was a harrowing experience. I didn't get in, which was a good thing. I envied some of the other people, secretly. I like many things about acting though. I like getting into my character's mind and fusing with my character... I want to think my character's thoughts and feel her feelings... I want to reach the point where nothing else matters (as in how I'm moving or any of that stuff) because I simply am my character (where all else simply flows out of that). And the level of self-development necessary to pull that off is something I crave. And I love imagining I'm my character and seeing the surroundings my character sees (being in that world). Anyway aside from all this I struggle with criticism and rejection and I remember feeling pretty hurt at some of the criticisms from my instructor, particularly regarding my weak points--physical and emotional expression.

    I never got big parts in elementary school plays, and I'm glad I didn't... the most recent acting I've done is I was in a paintball commercial once, yea! it was badass

    I don't know the type of my 8th grade theater teacher, but he was good in an unconventional way. One year of high school the teacher was a likely ILE with very old-fashioned methods. Most of the time is was an IEE, the daughter of the previous LSE theater teacher.
