Famous Actors - List of Famous Actors - page 170

Actors are professional performers who portray a given character in a dramatic production on stage or in motion pictures. Even though the term actor is basically used to refer to a male performer, it is becoming increasingly common to use it as a gender neutral term. Theater as an artistic means of expression and entertainment began evolving in ancient Greece and the known history of acting dates back to around 534 BC when Thespis, of Icaria, became the first person ever to portray a character in a play on stage. Acting as a profession has come a long way over the centuries, and so have actors. Initially acting was not considered a respectable profession, and few, if any, educated and well-to-do people chose to pursue acting as a career. But now times have changed and acting is an honorable profession just like any other and there are colleges and institutions dedicated to the grooming of aspiring performers into skilled actors. There are different types of actors, some like experimenting with versatile roles while others prefer specializing in a certain genre of acting like comedy, horror, or romance. You will find information about the life and works of various actors from all over the world in this section.
