What is an actor?

An actor is a male artist who plays a character in a movie or play. The actor acts as a medium between the vision and the viewer. One who presents a given role to an audience through a stage (movie, drama, radio). The knowledge of the art of acting and the expressions of the actor makes the presentation meaningful.

Actor's History:

The first recorded case of an acting actor was in 534 BC when the Greek artist Theseus took the stage at the theater Dionysus to become the first known person to speak the word as a character in a play or story. Before the work of the Thesis, Grecian's stories were only expressed in song, dance, and third-person narrative. In honor of Thespis, actors are usually called thespians. In the theater of ancient Greece, exclusively male actors performed three types of plays, tragedy, comedy and satirical drama. Western theater developed and expanded under the Romans. The theater of ancient Rome was a thriving and diverse art form, ranging from street theatre, nude dance and acrobatic festivals to high-level, verbally elaborate tragedies, to the staged of situational comedies.
