“Pur­sue what sets your soul on fire with­out fear.”

Glamour (South Africa) - - Glamour Work -

Act­ing truly sets my soul on fire. When I’m on set or on stage, I feel alive, en­er­gised and con­nected. It also en­cour­ages me to step into dif­fer­ent shoes and sit­u­a­tions, and I’ve learnt so much about my­self through th­ese pro­cesses, and be­come more em­pa­thetic and un­der­stand­ing as a re­sult. I get bored very quickly, so I love the va­ri­ety of my field, which is filled with fresh ex­cite­ment and con­stant chal­lenges. And even if it is some­times hard, that only serves to fuel the fire. To tell the truth, I can’t be­lieve that I get paid to have so much fun!

Find the bal­ance. As in­cred­i­ble as a ca­reer in act­ing can be, it’s also ex­cep­tion­ally tax­ing on the mind, body and spirit, so it’s im­por­tant to know when to take a step back and fo­cus on what’s re­ally im­por­tant in life. Car­ishma Bas­day Ac­tress
