Actors bring to life the characters they portray, whether fiction or real-life, fantasy or not.  They are the ones audiences identify with and can rise to celebrity status if the viewers like them a lot.  But actors are professionals first and foremost who often get to audition for the parts they want to play.  They become stars as a matter of reward for their enigmatic presence on stage or screen that audiences idolize.  Actors are multi-talented people who not only can act, but can sing and dance as well.  A resume for this position requires a portfolio of roles played and a video sample of their performances.
