Most people who dream of being an actor dream of being a movie star.
But that is not an ideal place to be in, as you are surrounded by sycophants and can easily lose touch with reality. Also if you make too many wrong choices with the projects you choose, your phone will eventually stop ringing with new offers.
Far better to be an in-demand character actor, such as the American actor Robert Duvall, or Aussie actors Michael Caton and Deborah Mailman.
A character actor doesn’t need movie star looks, they simply need an interesting face – a character face, which is a much better place to be in than a star who is always looking over their shoulder at the up-and-comers who are threatening their precarious position at the top of the tree.
