It’s my blog and I’ll make sweeping generalisations if I want to…
I’ve noticed that every time someone I’m talking to starts a sentence with, “As an actor…”, three things are true:
1) It is uttered unprompted, when we were not talking about acting in any way at all.
2) The person speaking is not, as their statement would imply, actually making a living as an actor.
3) All I hear is, “ME ME ME validate me for pretending to be in an industry that contributes nothing ME ME ME ACTING FAME WANKERY CRAFT AUTOGRAPHS STANISLAVSKI ME!”
