ACTOR Actors interpret others' words in order to bring a script to life, and to put flesh and blood on the characters they portray. Theirs is the public face of a production, representing many others' work and efforts. It is rare for the public to see the Scriptwriter, the Producer, or the director - their perception is based on what the Actors portray on the screen. They usually work across television, theatre, film and radio, each requiring some specific skills. Some may also work as models or even provide voice-overs for commercials, documentaries, talking books, dubbed foreign language films etc.

Make-up and hair are key elements in the overall design of films and television productions, creating a look for the characters in relation to social class, and time periods, and any other elements required to create the desired illusion. On film and TV dramas, their work is directed by Make-up and hair designers who provide them with detailed notes, characters and scene breakdowns and, if necessary, reference pictures about the characters they must create. Sometimes, they may only receive a rough brief, and must produce their own script breakdown, and research and create their own design notes. They work on principal and supporting actors. They usually look after several actors throughout the shoot. They must maintain the continuity of the actors ‘look’.

They then develop costume plots for each character. Plots ensure that colours and styles do not mimic each other in the same scene, and highlight the characters' emotional journeys by varying the intensity and depth of colours.
