I’ve thought this. An actor goes from being a love interest, to the parent, to the old person. I’m sure it’s weird for them the first time they land a role for a character that is in the next “age bracket”


What about being a drug-addicted actor portraying a drug-addicted celebrity who dies of an overdose?


But what happens when they *actually* die of old age during the act? Do they keep the scene for realism or throw it out to avoid suspicion?


Yeah but they get paid buttloads of money so…


Dying as an actor? It’s a living.
