Actors are hired for roles in film, television, theater or even events. They can also be employed as ‘extras’. In those roles, they appear on-screen with no lines, as narrators for animations or as voiceovers for audiobooks or other media. Since acting roles range from Hollywood ‘A-listers’ to struggling actors trying to secure a steady job, work hours vary. The hours can also be extensive and even irregular.
