Whos the actor here?
I have become a bit peevish about aspiring actors of all age asking me to do their leg work for them. I think someone who wants to be an actor or be in the school play and needs a monologue, needs to find it for themselves. I think that any of the people who ask me for help can find things on the web, like auditions, community theatres, and any miriad of things that I am asked to find for them, can find them for themselves. They are the actors. I am the mentor. I make suggestions and recommendations. I am not going to get any work or money out of this, They need to learn that to be an actor, they are going to have to do a lot of things on their own . If they are not good self-starters, they will never make it.
