Tarot Cards 7

Imagine that you are an actor who has played the same role all your life. And you don’t even imagine that there are other roles too. And suddenly they come up to you and say: “Listen, actually you can play other roles. You can play the Emperor, the Mage, the Hierophant, and many others. Here are the scripts for you.”

Imagine that you are an actor who has played the same role all your life. You are unable to imagine that there are other roles out there for you. And you don’t even imagine that there are other roles too. And suddenly they (specify who is they; casting director, acting coach) come up to you and say: “Listen, actually you can play other roles. You can play the Emperor, the Mage, the Hierophant, and many others. Here are the  some scripts for you.”

Hi Oleks,

I have always imagined what it would be like to be an actor. I tried acting lessons at school and found them to be very difficult and challenging. Did you enjoy them?

Faye has done a good job of evaluating your extract.

I would just change this bit "who has played the same role all your life"  to "who has played the same types of roles all your life" if that makes sense...

Hi Ed! Thank you for your suggestion! I think you are right. About lessons: we didn’t have acting lessons at school. They probably wouldn't hurt. Although I hardly loved them too. Mathematics was easy for me.
