Johnny Lee Miller: “You don’t have to be outgoing to be an actor”

From philly.com:

“You don’t have to be outgoing to be an actor. I think you have to have the ability to extrovert, but you don’t have to BE an extrovert at all. A lot of the more intense actors are not extroverts. I’m not great . . . in large groups of people but I’m not shy anymore. I like to think of myself as being quite friendly, but I wouldn’t call myself shy.”

    But you do need to be professional (Shout out to PerformerTrack.).

    You do need to follow-up, be on time, be prepared, be organized and learn to leverage your career ongoings so you can move forward. (Second shout out to PerformerTrack!)

    What does that have to do with being outgoing. That’s just common sense for any job
