How To Write An Acting Resume

When you are first starting out as an actor, you still need a resume even though you have very little experience to list. Casting directors request a resume whenever you want to be considered for a role. The good news is that an acting resume reveals more than your acting experience. Create a resume that includes other relevant information to let casting directors determine whether you are suitable for a role. 1. Type your stage name at the top of your acting resume in a large bold font. List your contact information, including your mobile telephone number and email address, because many casting directors prefer email communication. 2. List your your height, weight, hair color, shoe size and clothing sizes. Age is only required if you are under 18. 3. List your experience to date. Label the experience section based on experience type. For instance, if your experience is in television, label the section “Film/Television.” If your experience was in a play, label the section “Theatre.” For commercials, label the section “Commercials.” It is possible to have more than one label in the experience section. 4. List your experience underneath the appropriate sections. Include the name of the project, your role and the production company's name. No experience is too small to list. If your only theater experience was in a high school play, list it. If your only film experience was as a movie extra, list it. 5. Include a “Training” section to include all acting classes you have taken. List the type of class, as well as the name of the instructor. Emphasize the specific skills you learned in a class, such as scene study, cold reading, audition technique and improvisation. If you took a drama class in college, it is OK to list the drama class. Refrain from listing college education courses that have nothing to do with acting. 6. Add a skills section to your acting resume. A casting director looks for specific skills and talents, depending upon the project he is casting. List talents that may be desirable to casting directors, such as skating, horseback riding, gymnastics, boxing, karate, singing, jogging and juggling.
