An actor is a person who plays a role in an art production (cinema, television, theater, or radio show). You can also sing, dance, or work as a dubbing actor. An actor is a person who has learned his or her profession and craft within the framework of the school created for this purpose, or has acquired it through many years of practice and recognition of the profession. An actor should not be confused with an amateur actor. The actor usually plays a fictional character; you can also shape an existing person in fictional works about existing people or featuring existing people. Sometimes they shape themselves. In Hungary, the actors join the Association of Art Unions. Their advocacy organization is Szídosz (Trade Union of Theater Workers) and their international organization is the FIA (Federation International of Actors). History of acting The first note about the actor i. e. It dates from 534 (presumably from November 23, although changes in the calendar since then make it difficult to pinpoint it) when the Greek Thespius took the stage at the Theater of Dionysus. He was the first to appear as a character in a work. Acting has revolutionized the way stories are told. Before Thespis performed, the stories were told in song and dance or some songs were told in a third person, but no one hid in the skin of the characters. According to a theatrical legend that has survived to this day, Thespis still exists in the form of a mischievous spirit, and theatrical troubles are sometimes attributed to him. In historical times, actors did not usually have a high degree of social esteem, for example, in the early Middle Ages, traveling actor companies were treated with suspicion. In the 20th century, however, this changed greatly, and acting also became a respected branch of art. One reason for this may have been that film became more accessible as an entertainment option, raising the social status of movie stars. In the past, only men could be actors. In ancient times and in the Middle Ages, it was a disgrace for a woman to take the stage, and this was the case until the 17th century, when this tradition was broken in Venice. In the time of William Shakespeare, female roles were played by young men or boys, although there is some evidence that women disguised themselves as men also performed.
