Film & Television Actor

From the faces you see in local commercials all the way to Oscar hopefuls, onscreen performers are charged with bringing characters to life and injecting emotion into their lines. Acting is obviously a field most associated with the famous people at its very top, but there are far more working, journeyman actors in the world than there are Jennifer Lawrences or Michael B. Jordans. While many actors attend art or drama school, there are certainly success stories of people with no formal training.
