You Are Never Too Old

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.

- C. S. Lewis

There are too many huge success stories of actors who began to pursue an acting career late in life to even start a meaningful list here. Actors who have won awards, acclaim and great success. It is tempting to feel there is an age limit, some sort of timeline by which we must've done X by time Y or all is lost. Don't do it.

Don't confine your reality or your life to such silly expectations. If you, or me, knew what the future would be like we wouldn't need to live: we'd already know the ending. But we don't, so enjoy the adventure, even the "bad" parts and relax.

As fixated on the young as show business seems to be, try counting how many people over (choose any age) you see on TV and in films and you'll see the young ingenue, both male and female, is the minority of the roles. So breathe, do your work and have some fun on the way.
