Do You Love It Enough?

Tuesday, 24 January 2017


The other day I was asked if I have any advice for getting into the acting industry. Now this is such a hard question to answer as everyone has their own path, but it made me think of a question to fire right back.

Do you love it enough?

Do you love it enough to be rejected day in and day out?

Do you love it enough to put in the work everyday?

Do you love it enough to struggle to pay rent month in and month out?

Do you love it enough to do random jobs just to get money?

Do you love it enough to travel far and wide just for a casting?

Do you love it enough to let your friends down?

Do you love it enough to let your family down?

Do you love it enough to never having a structured life?

Do you love it enough to want it so bad?

Do you love it enough to go months without seeing your other half?

Do you love it enough to have doors closed in your face?

Do you love it enough to be judged?

Do you love it enough to go through the depression?

Do you love it enough to have others tell you to get a proper job?

Do you love it enough to constantly wonder why you aren't getting seen?

Do you love it enough to never being able to book a holiday at ease?

Do you love it enough to spend the only money you have on networking?

Do you love it enough to only having one casting every now and then?

Do you love it enough to do the graft?

Do you love it enough to have one line?

Do you love it enough to get type casted?

Do you love it enough to miss family weddings?

Do you love it enough to follow your dream no matter how hard it gets?

Do you love it enough to have a call time at 2am?

Do you love it enough to not having weekends?

Do you love it enough to rent for years and years?

Do you love it enough to call mum and dad for help?

Do you love it enough to give up time for a pencil?

Do you love it enough to be asked 'so what have I seen you in'?

Do you love it enough?

Do you love it enough?

Do you love it enough?


If the answer to all the above is yes, then you don't need advice. You have all you need already. Determination, motivation and a bloody thick skin is all you need in this industry. Keep going and you will get there one day.

That's my advice. Do you love it enough to be an actor?
