Yeah, seem to be getting loads of work in the US.

Most British actors? How many do you think there are in Britain?

How do you know this? Are you just going by the big Hollywood films and tv shows. And the same handful of actors that you see?

At least 80% of jobbing actors in Britain are out of work at the same time. And I'm sure the percentages in the US itself, aren't much better.

Unfortunately, the economic downturn has affected everything. And work within the industry, like a lot of other things, is at an all-time low.
And yet, someone such as Jamie Shelton was cast in Emmerdale and Marc Baylis in Corrie. Were they seriously the best actors out of the 80% of actors available? I think not and I think it is a case of who you know rather than how good an actor you are.
