Actors tread a fascinating path. While some can, at times, arguably err on being "overconfident", many of us never seem to shake the nagging sensation that we are somehow not enough or that we don't belong; even in the projects we are booked for, we can find ourselves wondering how the casting director could have made such a mistake in choosing us for the role! If this sounds familiar, take comfort that you are not alone in this. Learning to trust that you are an important and valuable part of the creative process can take time, even when you're recording for a soon to be Academy Award nominated animated feature.
Cathy Ang has written an ode to types like us. In the process of helping create the wonderful film, Over the Moon, she found herself in moments of doubt and amazement, elevating those around her while simultaneously not giving herself enough credit for earning her way into the room. Through the process, she gained some insights that helped her step up to the challenge and perform well despite the doubt. We hope her findings can help you in your acting journey, when you find yourself in those moments where you need to quiet that inner voice that lies to you saying you don't deserve to be there. You do, and there are more important voices to listen to.
