Since ancient times men and women have practiced the art of acting, playing the role of a character in a story, to entertain an audience. Why simply read a story about when you can take part in it, playing the role and make a display of skill?

Actors have found various ways over the centuries, acting as the voice on the radio, theater and film acting. From the Latin word agere meaning "to do" (see Wikipedia), the actors literally play a role, speaking dialogue written and perform physically in a way that the character. In most of the action, a director is present, whose job is to tell other players what to do and make sure everything goes well and act as the writer of the desired scenario.

The actors are required to possess many skills such as physical strength and dexterity, vocal imitation and charisma. The modern movie industry employs thousands of actors to play the roles of characters in movie scripts, recording them for display on the silver screen. Acting in film is rarely an audience, but has the added pressure of being seen by millions on the screen later release.

Acting is a traditional art form and many players learn to set academic institutions. famous institutions are the London Academy of Film, Radio and Television and the American Academy of Dramatic Art. Some players train in a variety of different places, learning the techniques of classical and modern acting as Method Acting. This is a performance style in which the actor strives to be as realistic as possible, based on personal experience of emotional situations rather than dramatized.

The tradition of acting dates back to ancient times, with the ancient Egyptians and Greeks to perform, either for religious purposes, or even in the case of the Greeks, for entertainment. A man named Thespis is hailed as the first actor is recognized again in 560 BC C., and his name inspired the term actress as another word for the actor (see the website of the New York Film Academy). It is claimed by some as one of the first to embody a character with the purpose of storytelling, using masks to distinguish between identities.
