To be a good actor, you need to know your craft. But more importantly you need to know yourself. Consider yourself to be an ambassador of human experience. You will represent the human race with your performances, so study by observing the world around you. Keep your body healthy, as this is your instrument. When you have an audition, show up prepared, on time, and always treat those around you with respect (that includes the casting directors as well as your fellow auditioners). There is only one you; make the most of the person you are and your acting will shine.
