Also, I've been cast for the part of Dr. Baugh in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof for a January production by the Munroe Park Theatre Guild.
Have you ever heard of Impostor Syndrome?
Regardless of what level of success they may have achieved in their chosen field of work or study or what external proof they may have of their competence, those with the syndrome remain convinced internally they do not deserve the success they have achieved and are actually frauds. Proof of success is dismissed as luck, timing, or as a result of deceiving others into thinking they were more intelligent and competent than they believe themselves to be.I'm sure actors feel it too, sometimes. Which is ironic. Because the job of an actor is precisely to be an impostor.
Could there be, in fact,
people who only pretend to act?
