Actors depict characters in stories using their voices, appearances, bodies and gestures. They can work in movies, television, commercials, theater, theme parks and clubs. While working as an actor, they perform for entertainment and informational purposes.
An actor's primary duty is to effectively communicate the character that they are playing to an audience, using their voice, body, actions and reactions. Through their art, actors tell stories, engender emotional reactions in their audience and make people think.
