The Working Actor Show

10-04-2023 • 22 mins

Georgie and Pierce discuss a really important topic when starting as a new actor. How do you stand out on set and make the right connections and end up working with the same teams over and over again? Find out how to create consistency and create an attractive catalogue of work and a supportive network to provide you with ongoing opportunities.


  • It’s not about having a certain method of making connections, it’s just about being you.
  • Be likeable and try not to offend to make yourself easy to work with. Try not to be too blunt but be open and honest.
  • Be a good part of the team and don’t frustrate your workmates.
  • Connections are made more out of the workplace. Join social invitations.

‘There are going to be people who are difficult to work with and I think it’s important to remember that in that moment why you’re doing this but also remember that you’re part of the team.’-Pierce

‘I think it’s about knowing how to converse and when to converse.’-Georgie
