Acting Resume


An acting resume format summarizes your experience in the field of show business. It focuses on your projects that are relevant to acting, rather than on your education or work experience.

To start, write a summary of your profile. This includes the number of years in the field, your highest attainment, and your most promising project. This shows how far you have gotten in the acting industry.

Next, provide an elaborate acting experience. If you do acting in several fields, such as television and theater, you may place them in separate sub-sections. List your most notable projects. The title of the show or play, the location, and the year.

Below each entry, list your role and identify if it is a lead, major, or minor role. Add the directors or writers, as well as the prominent actors you performed with.

Next briefly discuss your educational history, especially if you have attended an acting school. For the record, it may be appropriate to include your employment history.

However, if you have been acting all your life and intend to stay in the acting industry, this may be omitted. Finally, write your personal information and reference persons.
