Stanislavski, The Method, Acting Process and Technique
Actor who doesn't read needs a director to act... but who wants to work with the actor who doesn't understand you? How can I work with somebody who doesn't understand the craft and himself? Who should he be paid? Directors are paid to direct, not to teach. We pay to learn. Who is the last to teach you? You.
You do not understand this law of business? You need to talk to your manager. Yes, somebody who makes money on you, because you know the rules of the business -- do you have this manager?
My friend, you can get a role, if you're lucky, but not a profession.
