10 Experiences Actors Have (That May Baffle Non-Actors)
Written by Ashleigh Gardner

Having to kiss someone passionately —
— while not being in a relationship with them.
Needing to have other people dress you —
— because you don’t have time to dress yourself.
Undressing in front of a room full of people —
— who aren’t your significant other.
Engaging in a violent physical fight —
— and never actually getting injured.
Having to say “thank you” when the lights go out —
— because you’ll get scolded if you don’t.
Having blood in your mouth —
— that tastes like peppermint or vanilla.
Having a love/hate relationship with someone every night —
— because you’re actors, duh.
Talking to yourself repeatedly in your room or your car —
— and not being completely crazy.
Being able to memorize pages and pages of text —
— only to remember them years later after the show has closed.
