How to become a better Onscreen Actor

How to become a better Onscreen Actor

We all want to do our best and be our best onscreen.

Becoming a better on-screen actor involves a combination of training, practice, and personal development. 

Here are some tips:

1. Take Acting Classes: Formal training provides a foundation to build upon through learned techniques, constructive feedback, and experience in scene work. We also understand that not everyone has access to these types of classes so lean on some of the other tips.  

2. Learn to Take Direction: Being able to take adjustments and notes from directors or acting coaches is critical for actors to improve. Be teachable. 

3. Create Detailed Character Backgrounds: Fleshing out a character’s full backstory beyond what’s in the script provides richer subtext and informs performance choices.

4. Analyze Scripts Thoroughly: Understanding the subtext - meaning beneath the surface of the words - is vital for connecting with a character’s motivations.

5. Develop a Unique Acting Personality: Find your acting type and then lean into it. Strive to become more charismatic, develop an artistic persona, and maybe even come up with a stage name.

6. Observe Other People and Great Actors: Deconstruct your favorite actors' habits. How do they use their bodies? What facial expressions do they use effectively? Practice these gestures and expressions. This is a great alternative for those who may not have access to acting classes. 

7. Read Scripts: Read the scripts of your favorite plays and movies. Familiarize yourself with the classics, like Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, Anton Chekov, and Tennessee Williams.

8. Develop Audition Material: Some auditions will require you to read from a pre-selected piece or a portion of the script that will be used in the show.

9. Watch as Much as Possible and Have a Life Outside of Acting: This will help you bring more life experiences to your roles.

Remember, acting is a lifelong journey of learning and discovery rather than a destination. It takes time and patience to grow and develop as an actor. Good luck!
