Developing Your "Type" of Acting Career

Part of setting up your acting career is recognizing your “type.” This means having a strong idea of your identity and the strengths and weaknesses that it entails. Take note of the roles you've felt the most comfortable with in the past, and what roles you are currently auditioning for. Don't be afraid to ask friends, family, co-workers, and past directors about their opinions of your personality. This feedback will help you learn to capitalize on the roles most suitable for you.

I would say most people don't realize that its a "visual" medium and its about a look. Also, they need to work on their voice, which could be another type factor.

Good information.
