A Day in Our Lives

The Working Actor Show

22-05-2023 • 25 mins

As jobbing actors, what is a day like for Georgie and Pierce? What is the effect of a non-linear choice of career on day to day living? Georgie and Pierce share the working actor’s day including

frequency of work, job applications, staying in contact with their network, their work and social life, hobbies, and second jobs.


  • Applying for at least five jobs a day is a good benchmark for frequency of work.
  • Expect your work and social life to meld to some extent.
  • Sharing non-acting friendships, jobs or hobbies can create some breathing space away from the sometimes pressure filled acting career.
  • Try not to let other people make you feel bad for choosing your career over your social life.
  • Do not compare milestones with those in other careers.


‘I would say at the moment I’m consistently playing two roles a month’-Georgie

‘Often when you’re working a more traditional job you’ve got your work life and personal life and they’re very separate. So many times with acting they just merge as one.’-Pierce

‘It struck me that people who aren’t in the acting industry don’t know these things. They don’t know that people need an agent to perhaps take it into the next step of their career.’-Georgie

‘Are we going to accept that our bloody car insurance is going to be higher if we put ‘actor’ or ‘entertainer’ down on our insurance policy?’-Georgie

‘Don’t let acting stump what you want to do.’-Georgie
