  • What You Need to Know About Acting With Kids

    Working with child actors can be a lot of fun, but it can also be draining. I’ve worked on several films where some of the main stars were kids, but I’ve also observed and heard so many things about working with children that I thought it would be useful to fill you in if you ever end us on set with a bunch of ‘em.
    If you’re getting ready to work on a film with a child actor, consider these things carefully.
    1. Build relationships but establish the difference between you and the character.If you’re working with a younger actor, it may be hard for them to grasp that you and the character you’re portraying are two different people. Hopefully, the director will help with this but if not, do what you can to remind them who you are and who the character you’re playing is, especially if you’re portraying a parent/child scenario.
    To make the relationship believable on camera, you need to make the child actor feel comfortable around you just like a child would around his or her parent, but you also have to remember to maintain a professional attitude. Be intentional about treating them differently than your character between takes.
