I’ve been a working actress for over 30 years. I believe there will always be an abundance of work. I have a ‘knowing’ about that, an inner trust.
When I hear actors complain about the lack of work available, my response is “If that’s what you believe, that will be your experience.” Where thoughts go, energy flows.
Talent is important, but I’ve seen many talented actors fail because they don’t do the marketing that’s required. Think of yourself as a product. Then package and market it well.
You will succeed if you believe you will. Keep showing up.
