Dealing with rejection poses a challenge to many – actors included. Even the successful ones. We’re all sensitive creatures after all, aren’t we?
It is a real downer when you missed out on a part in a play, movie or show. Whether you didn’t get the part your wanted or you didn’t get a part at all, it feels deflating. If you have had your heart set on being a part of that cast for that particular movie but it unfortunately didn’t come through, get over that loss and move on to the next greatest role. Monique Coleman of High School Musical recently shared with us some tips on how to deal with rejection.
What do you think of when you hear the words “entertainment industry”?
Do you think of the glitz and glam? High profile interviews and red carpet walks? Do you think of the creative and expressive side of the industry? Is it a hobby, and art form, or a business? For people who think that the industry is an art form, that is great. It can be as creative and inspiring as possible. It can be a platform to tell your story and give you a life of happily ever afters.
