Would an agent or casting director pick me if I’m ‘FUN SIZED’ or Multi-race (Italian, Native, etc.)?
There are roles available for all types. People sometimes have this notion that you have to be perfectly thin and extremely good looking to be an actor, but that’s just a small amount of the roles out there. There are tons of roles that require different looks.
Spend some time to define your actor type. Understanding your type will help you know what kind of headshots to get and how to market yourself to casting directors and agents.
