Life Of An Actor
Some of you have probably wondered about the lives of actors or actresses. Some people think that it is a world of glamour and that they live like nobody else. Some of you are wrong. Their life is not that great. Even though they are rich and they have all the fame and attention, sometimes it can become too much, and something bad can happen. Their life sometimes can become monotone because you are surrounded by a circle of people that are almost as same as you or exactly like you and you can’t go anywhere else. The same thing goes for singers or musicians. They experience the fame and money and usually when there is nothing else to experience they usually start doing drugs or alcohol or they start heaving some mental problems. Even the best comedians are usually depressed in their private life.
Yes, unfortunately, their life is one big routine. They will visit some of the exotic places, they will go to gala balls and evenings, and they will have the most expensive cars and mansions. And what after that? That is the question that they will usually ask themselves. Their life can be pretty boring once they get to see everything. That is why we see so many divorces and so many changes in their life. Some of them are even strange in a way. Some of them don’t want to have kids, some of them want to. Just like as regular people, you can find pretty much everything in their lives. They are also kind, and you will see them usually that they are donating money to the less fortunate. This is a good thing. These people are usually facing the period when they will feel that their life is boring.
Their life is the same as ours, well almost
The thing is, they have regular problems as we do but on a much larger scale. The thing is, they are surrounded by money and fame, and that can sometimes be trouble if you see it too much.
How To Be A Voice Actor?
First, we will have to tell you that not every actor can be a voice actor. It all depends on the situation. First, it would be a good idea to know how to create different voices. You will also need to know how to adjust your voice if the director doesn’t like it or thinks that it should be changed a little bit. As you can see, not only that you will need to know how to make more than one voice, but you will need to know how to make it different. So as you can see, not all people are good for voice acting. Some actors have voices that are designed for a specific type of characters. And they are lucky. That is why they are not always in all cartoons. Some actors have voices that you can recognize when you hear them.
Different voices, different possibilities
To be a good voice actor, you don’t have to be famous. Most of the regular actors will be hired because people already know their voice because they are famous. And the producer will estimate if their voice is good for the character that needs to be voiced. For example, in children cartoons, voices that are high in pitch and extremely low voices are good because they are funny. Kids love them. Goofy voices are also good for these types of cartoons. But today, there aren’t any general rules. Directors will even choose a serious voice if the character needs to be serious. So as you can see, it all comes to the estimation of each character and their voice. You will not hire an actor that has a nice tone if the character is a bull for example. You will hire a man with a deep voice.
The general opinion
In general, people believe that each character has its voice type. It all comes down to the wishes of the staff and the people who are making a cartoon or a movie. So there are no general rules about it. It’s the directors choice.
Becoming An Actor
To become and actor one must do more than graduate from an acting university. You need to have talent. Talent is the major factor if you want to be a good actor. The camera needs to love you, and that is a phrase that you will hear a lot. To step into the world of acting, you will need to take auditions, and you will need to have some skills. But besides that, you will need to have that certain factor that people will like. That is why some actors don’t succeed because their energy and posture are not that good for the roles he/she applied. Some actors are successful because their body language is excellent and the roles they played have been by their character. You can’t expect that some actor why is known to be a comedian, plays in a movie where he will be a serious person.
Actors and their career
Some actors will sometimes choose the path which they want to go. Some of them will usually choose the career of a comedian like Robert Williams and many other actors who are known to be good comedians. Some will even choose to play in a mix of genres like comedies and action movies like Bruce Willis. He is an actor that was good in comedies like in the sitcom Friends, and he was also famous in the role of John McClane in the movie franchise Die Hard. It all depends on what types of movies are good for you. Some actors are even known to be good as action type actors like Tom Cruise. His role in Mission Impossible was a breakthrough. So as you can see, to become an actor, you will need to have a certain energy.
Acting is important
To be an actor or actress, you will need to make sure that your body and your posture gives the impression that you can play almost any role. And you can even be an actor that plays only certain types of movies which is also great.
Billy Bob Thompson
This man is a famous guy. He gave his voice to Squishy. No, that is not soda. Squishy is a Pokémon. If you are a fan of Pokémon, then you will certainly know which Pokémon we are talking about. But this man is probably famous with his role and voice acting in general. He joined the Pokémon team in the fourteenth season. You wouldn’t believe, but he gave voices to a lot of characters in the Pokémon series. He is also known as a great comedian in NYC. But to give so many voices to so many different characters is a real talent. Just imagine the different changes in your voice to imitate more than 20 characters. That is something, to be honest, and you can try and imitate just a couple of voices. You will see that it is too hard.
Born with those skills
People like Billy Bob Thompson are people who are born with those skills. There is no simple way to put it. You have to be a talent, or you have to be born with those skills. On the other hand, you also got to have some god listening and ear skills to create or at least repeat so many different sounds. Usually, comedians are known to be good singers and actors, not to mention voice actors. The ability to transform into another person in a couple of seconds is simply remarkable. And to transform into more than 20 different characters is a miracle. There are many actors and comedians out there, but we think that Billy is a unique actor. Also, more than 20 characters mean that you voice range needs to be pretty wide.
The voice range
As we said, to give a voice to more than 20 characters, you will need to have a vocal range that is impressive. A range that is long and wide so to speak. You don’t find a lot people with these capabilities. So that is why Billy is probably among the top vocal actors in the world.
