Commercial Enterprise

As I enter the entertainment industry I can’t help but wonder what direction my career as an actor will take me. I am and will always be interested in theatre but I have found that a lot of the opportunities I have been offered lately want to steer me away from it. After signing with an agency and sending out a number of self-tapes I have found that I am mostly being put out for film, television and commercials. As an actor does the true “art: of the craft lie solely in theatre. What does it mean to “sell out” when you are a struggling actor just trying to make a name for themselves? As of now I know that I will take whatever I can get, but I am afraid that if I move too far in one direction i might be pulled away from other opportunities that might be more aligned with what I want to do artistically. Only time will tell I guess.
