Resume Template for a Beginner Actor
Preparing a resume for actors just starting their acting career is a little more difficult since they might not have any experience. Even if you have not done any professional acting you might want to include any role you had in the past such as in high school or college.
It is important to be honest even if you do not have any experience yet.
Since you don’t have enough professional experience you can include your education and any relevant courses that you have taken.
Resume Template for an Experienced Actor
Since you have professional experience you can focus on the roles you played and less on your education. Include only relevant education. List your experience above your education.
List your experience in order of importance with the more important roles at the top. Also, put the more relevant experience above the less relevant experience. For example, if you are looking to do film and you have experience in theatre and film then put the film experience first.
