About

Lance Carter (SAG-AFTRA / AEA)
Editor

LanceI got my start in the Baltimore/Washington D.C. area.  Starting out doing local theater, I moved on to extra work and was lucky enough to get my SAG card on my first union audition. (A SAG industrial was looking for actors who could drive a forklift. I was working for my father at the time and occasionally driving the forklift at his company. Who would have thought that that would be my ticket into SAG?)

I’ve performed in local theater, dinner theater, traveling shows, industrials, commercials, television (sitcoms, dramas) and film (independents and studio films).

I moved to LA in 2004 and since then, I’ve have the good fortune to work with actors whose careers everyone would love to have -  Topher Grace, Mila Kunis, Neil Flynn, Kurtwood Smith, Stephen Lang, Donal Logue and many others.

What is this site about?
This site became live on June 30th, 2008. Originally, the goal was to help promote actors and post acting and actor news that I found on the web. After a year (almost to the day), I decided to change focus. It just wasn’t fun anymore and it became like a job.

I decided to create my own news and content. Through industry contacts, I started to interview actors, directors, screenwriters, casting directors and I began to write more columns that helped inform actors.

I’m trying my best to make this the website for acting information and interviews. If there is anything I can ever help you with, please email me!  I would love to hear your thoughts or comments: Lance@dailyactor.com
