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


“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!)

    These are great: and so is the DailyActor Discount.

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