The art of acting may look easy on TV, but Scandal! actress Stephanie Sandows has lifted the lid on how hard it is to stand out in the industry as a skilled actor.
Stephanie portrayed a more vulnerable side to her when she took to Instagram and explained how hard she works to perfect her craft.
In a video, Stephanie can be seen unmasking the normally bubbly actress she’s usually known as on Scandal! and expressing a more fragile part of herself.
“But for years I felt unqualified, seeking validation from anyone and everyone, validation that I had what it took to be a ‘thespian’. I’d idolise fellow actors and wish I could be as authentic and as vulnerable as they were.”
“So while holding on, I took every opportunity to learn. In every audition as a casting assistant I would ‘play’ alongside distinguished actors, not just read for them but give a performance.”
Stephanie compared her learning from fellow actors as being in “Acting school” as she’d absorb all she could to make her acting skills better.
“Absorb, learn, l.ong story short, I am so proud of the actor I’ve become. I look at the growth from when I started, not having a clue what I was doing.”
