We believe you can be a great performer. Training to develop your performance insights and delivery technique is paramount, but it's also vastly important to know where you can fall short and consciously work with that in mind. All performers will face difficulty in the work. Take that as a given and you can draw power from it to move on when you find yourself struggling. You aren't alone and you aren't the first, which actually works toward your advantage! People who have done the work before you have blazed trails to walk on, and their insights can help you find your way more rapidly.
In the following article, we see four common challenges that all actors, and especially voice actors, should look out for. We say 'especially' because voice actors have less to protect their performances, since you generally have only imagination as your scene partner in the booth. Let us know if this helped you or if you have any other feedback on the article.
