From a random discussion with a peer, he wrote this. Please tell me this is not true!???? QUOTE: I’m a working actor ( 9 eps of a bafta winning bbc drama etc) with a terrible agent (my works comes from the goodness of a casting director). Things to look at before you decide to become an actor. 1 Attractive/pretty: lead/hero/successful working actor 2 average: police officer/one liners/ plot tools 3: fat: victim/funny person 4: ugly: bad guy:girl 5: ethnicity:you will play roles as your ethnicity as opposed to a person. All casting/producers follow this protocol. There are a few exceptions….there (are) to be exceptions.
