My clear choice for winner here is IMDB: Traci Lords, who resents her "ex-adult star" title.If she's not the first to leave the industry, she's clearly the most famous.

Well, without narrowing it down slightly, this is an extremely broad topic as there is no specification as to what type of actors, locations, etc. I will address this from the point of view of SAG-AFTRA, the Screen Actors Guild union in the United States. For example, SAG-AFTRA has rate sheets available on their website that spell out the hourly rate for ...

TV has become, in the opinion of many Directors/Actors, the most creatively fertile ground. In the last few years we have seen an exodus of talent from Hollywood, and those who have left have been so provoked by the current climate of film making they have felt the need to not only abandon the Hollywood system, but make public declarations as to their ...

I would assume that the most important reason is that there isn't an alternative to child actors in movies, TV-series etc., whereas in most/all other cases the job can be executed by an adult. Moreover not all child labor is prohibited: These laws do not consider all work by children as child labour; exceptions include work by child artists, ...

This probably shouldn't count because it doesn't meet your first criterion, but I think it is notable. Sylvester Stallone's first film was a (soft-core) adult film called The Party at Kitty and Stud's (1970) (a.k.a. Italian Stallion).

Robin Williams was a king of "Improvisational" comedy, where he can take a subject or event (or even a prop) and spout funny lines or impressions off the top of his head. One must be entirely quick-witted to excel in Improv, which is one of the reasons it's a difficult art to master (and most clips of Williams' work will confirm he did, in fact, Master that ...

I do not believe this question is inherently answerable. While we know of successful actors who "Ascribe" to "The Method" we don't have a full list nor we do really have a list of actors who don't. You'd have to basically research each "Successful/Awarded" actor to get their comments on this acting approach. (I suggest using "Inside the Actor's Studio" as ...

While child acting is allowed, it is not unregulated. In the US, the activities of child actors are regulated by the governing labor union & also by federal law and state law if it exists. Longer work hours or risky stunts are prohibited in California. However to evade this filmmakers often shoots such scenes outside. Especially in California there are ...

First of all, I have to say that the following is largely based on my own observations and deductions in contrast to elaborate research, and to be seen in addition, if not intertwined, with the reasons presented in the other ansers. I think a big factor is also the question of availability and distribution. As far as I can see, it wasn't until the advent ...

Speaking in a interview, Roja once commented what will Kamal Haasan's films will have other than kissing scenes with heroines and that's the reason she never got the chance to work with the versatile actor. - english.tupaki.com Roja was once asked what was her feelings working for the first time with Rajinikanth in the movie ‘Ulaipali’ during a ...

The simplest answer? It depends. It may be a request casting, where the performer is specifically asked through their agent to try out for the part. In this case, there may be a formal audition. Or the producer may simply offer to cast the performer without an audition, usually relying on a familiarity with the performer's past work as a basis. Last but ...
