Actors with challenges

It ultimately is your humanity, your soul – if you like that word – that will move people about your performances.  It’s nonsense to think that actors with dyslexia, learning disabilities, social disabilities, etc. can’t become professional actors.  Do not let other people make you think that you can’t do great work.  I have graduates making six-figure salaries now solely as actors who had lots of challenges that other actors didn’t have.  Maybe that’s why they have become so successful.  They didn’t make excuses or feel sorry for themselves; they put their shoulder to the grindstone, mastered their work and are now in demand.
