Acting Role:

Learn how to build your acting resume with any acting experience. View a sample acting resume.

An acting resume is a one-page document that lists your theatrical, stage, film, TV, commercial, performing, or any other acting schools, training, or related acting experience. Your acting resume should be attached to the back of your acting headshot. If you have a lot of acting experience already, you do not need to list everything in your acting career, just highlight the most important acting roles, notable acting performances and acting appearances. But if you are just getting started on your acting career, make sure to include any awards and honors,acting school or training, education, special performing skills, and any other talent skills. Other special performing skills or talent includes things like singing or surfing.

Your acting resume should also include your physical statistics. Everyone in the entertainment industry is visually oriented. Most character breakdowns for acting roles have very precise physical descriptions. Your appearance must fit the acting role the casting directors are looking for.
