Within this industry, persistence is everything. If you are not persistent, you will fall out instantly. Sanford Meisner said it takes 20 years to become an actor. This is because you choice the industry with the more rejection than anything else.
You will be called in for countless auditions, callbacks and screen tests and something will happen that causes you to be turned down. You can film the first television season of a series and they decide to “go another direction.” You can’t get too excited over anything in this industry because you will eventually become heartbroken.
In short; persistence is everything. Don’t be discouraged because something went unexpected. Remember why you enjoy entertaining and remember why you chose this industry in the first place! Egypt wasn’t built in a day, and neither will your acting career.
