Extras- Fill in the spaces, create a crowd, like a landscape or set

Nonprofessional performers- Amateur actors chosen based on their appearance as apposed to their acting abilities

Trained professionals- well rounded stage and screen performers

Stars- acting icons that people recognize and support for their charismatic performances


The primary difference between Stage and screen acting is the level of skill by which they harbor. Stage actors and actresses must control the room with their voice and presence. They must be heard from the back of the theater, which involves far more skill and training. All of this extra effort pays off for them because stage actors further their preforming ability whereas screen actors play the part for the director. Stage performances are presented in one go, unlike screen films that involve acting in short sections that are weaved together in the end. All in all, stage actors have much more skill than that of screen actors.
