Montreal Actor Jamie Mayers' Journey to Venus
The road to becoming an actor certainly has its challenges. There are auditions to prepare for, many on short notice - followed by triumphs and disappointments. Landing a role is exciting and rewarding, but with it comes long hours of memorizing lines, rehearsals, costume fitting and much more.
It's not easy to make it in the 'biz' and for young actors, that road could be long. It is a commitment their parents must make as well, becoming micromanagers during the process; taking them to auditions, fittings, balancing their acting gigs with school work - and making sure the rules for minors are followed and their child is well taken care of.
