Being an actor is one of the most difficult jobs in the world, not because of what we do when we work, but because of what we do when we are not working. It's fighting walls most of the time. Changing jobs with flexibility all year, being mentally and fiscally ready when we are not active... It means saying to yourself "yes" when the rest says "no" It's a fucking beautiful curse. When the stars alling and you are seen, you cast a job and you do what you know and use the tools you have been training. Then there is no other feeling to describe it, but fulfillment. This foto is from the Ugly Utopia of Dan K. Sygurd.
