    Default What do actors do when they are not acting?

    So, I was watching macleods daughters today, and I was thinking, gee I haven't seen any of these actors in anything for a long time, and it got me wondering... What do actors do when they are no longer acting? Do they work in their local video store? Or are they waitresses? Does anyone know any out of work actors??

    Live their lives doing what ever. Some have other careers. They are normal people, so I guess they do normal people type stuff? Have families, work, travel etc.

    Ha ha, this is kinda what I picture!

    I mean they would still need to make a living right, and surely they wouldn't live off their savings for ever, especially Aussie actors, they wouldn't be paid enough!!!

    The rich ones live in their mansions with the children they have adopted from overseas. The poor ones probably do bit parts in movies, TV shows or ads and appear in "Where Are They Now" or "This is Your Life".

    But honestly, I have no idea.

    I have wondered this too. Not for Hollywood actors, but for small time TV actors.

    I wonder how they earn their money when not working. I suppose they find random jobs until a new acting job comes along?

    My BFF's brother in law is in Home and Away... or was, I don't watch it so he may not be anymore.

    as far as I know, he spent his free time taking recreational drugs.
