When it comes to the acting business, talent is only a reservoir of potential. It is the ability to learn a skill quickly, but the skill nevertheless needs to be practice and learned. A skill is the ability to perform on command, and talent needs to be turned into a skill. Then someone who has an acquired acting skill needs to persevere. He or she needs to walk the fine line between being persistent and being a pest, and you probably need divine grace to keep you towing that line. It amounts to a formula - talent multiplied by practice equals skill. Skill plus persistence equals a career. Learn how to further market yourself as an actor by reading An Actor's Business.
