Mon­treal Ac­tor Jamie May­ers' Jour­ney to Venus

Montreal Times - - News -

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.
