Earning a full-time wage as an actor is one of the most difficult career paths one can pursue. Competition is fierce and earnings are typically paltry unless you are one of the lucky fraction-of-a-few to break into the big time. The Screen Actors Guilde-American Federation of Trad and Radio Artists [SAG-AFTRA] has membership in excess of 160,000 – many of these are bit players at best. BLS estimates just 66,500 work in the field full-time.
