Experienced Young Performers Tell All
Posted on: 5/4/2015 12:25:00 PM Advice

Often times, a production will hire someone who is 18+ years to play younger (TPY) because 18+ can work on set as an adult without the Minor restrictions. You can see the Young Performers SAG-AFTRA handbook here: http://youngperformers.sagaftra.org/files/youngperformers/YPH_FNL3.pdf

Beards, tattoos, lots of hair or thinning hair, the clothes you wear. You may not know the names of these two actors but you've certainly seen their faces. When you talk to your friends about them, you say, “You know, the guy from 'So and So'!” or “C'mon, you know who I'm talking about! He played the sister's brother's bodyguard!”
