It Doesn’t need to be random; it can be by design.
“A study found that 63% of Actresses and 48% of Actorsstruggle with anxiety every year.
59% of women performers and 61% of men performers suffer from stress, while 37% of women and 36% of men say they have had depression.
99% will quit before they break into the entertainment industry. Could You Be Next?
If you are or want to be involved in the Entertainment Industry as a performer, you simply can’t ignore these stats anymore. The good news is that you don’t have to be part of those statistics even if you want to dive into this profession, “SoulFirst”. No one wants to talk about this, but the elephant in the room is the elephant.
And that elephant will only get bigger and harder to ignore. Also, many people who are passionate about acting have no access to advanced acting training/coaching that helps them get on the right track towards Mastery of the Craft and thus their acting career. Support and clear direction are fundamental in any career. Actors are not exempt.
Right now, the statistics are startling. Every year, 99% of actors /Actresses quit due to discouragement and depression in the UK alone. Of course, it’s obvious why only 1% make it into the Industry. Isn’t it? Over 60% Of Actresses and 40% of Actors suffer from anxiety, which doesn’t even count the people who do not report it.
If you are passionate and serious about your Acting Career, you’ve probably thought about this before. You probably realise that you’re a statistic waiting to happen.
You’ve probably realised what a nightmare it would be being passionate about a profession but not having the means or contacts or direction or privilege to access the opportunities and learn about jobs you love on the path to Mastery. The lack of confidence and lack of clarity comes inbuilt with the profession. The feeling of inadequacy at times. The challenge that it is when start working on complex new roles. When one feels seriously intimidated by other actors who seem to know exactly what they are doing and the thought that you can never get that feeling of sheer confidence they seem to have.
It probably scares you out of your mind. I know the feeling.
You push it away. I know you push it away because you are brave. You are one of us. You dare to choose passion. You dare to follow your calling. Some people don’t even dare to have called.

Yet, you are not alone…
The industry’s lack of community, direction and support regarding the Careers of Performers is a genuine and severe problem.
Worse yet, even people who try to keep up to date with coaching by joining amateur theatre community groups aren’t managing to go much further than that. And those who take University degrees in Performing Arts and Acting may be doing more harm than good because mainstream courses are designed for the masses; they are impersonal and generalised. They are not designed to make career Actors.
You are a unique individual; you are not the masses. This is why you will find that all (link) Actors Act Academy courses are designed to help you as a unique, powerful human being. I want you to see your power. You certainly don’t want to find yourself in a place where you feel powerless because you feel you are not reaching your goals. And not knowing how to always be the Master of the outcome of your Performances.
But the worse consequence of not learning to Master the Craft is that you will produce stale, forced, and “fake” performances that might be entertaining at best but will never reach your audience’s heart and will not impact them.
I’m speaking from personal experience. I nearly quit without realising that I was, inadvertently, gradually and quietly, giving up my dreams a few years after doing my BA in Acting at University.
It’s overwhelming when it happens, and you feel like there is nothing you can do when you don’t know what you are doing wrong. And it’s frightening when you feel unfulfilled and unsatisfied with your work. Some actors feel desperate, and they begin to shy away and quit slowly, inwardly. Thus, they start to feel very insecure at auditions until they can no longer bear it.
The point is that allowing this vicious circle in your career can turn your life upside down. It took me four years, right out of University, to recover.
It takes longer to wait for some random “break into the Industry”.
Many never recover because they quit. However, the road to recovery is never easy because, until now, there’s been no guidance, direction, or support available for Acting Professionals.
