Everyone could use a little inspiration sometimes and child actors are no different. To be an actor there is a level of confidence in yourself and in your talents that is required. However, even that confidence can use a boost every now and again. One of the best ways to get that inspiration is from others. Quotes to inspire us all can be found in many different forms. Sometimes those quotes come from the past and sometimes they come from the present. One of the ways those quotes to inspire help us is that they show us we are not the only ones who have gone through a certain situation.
Child actors may exude confidence, but we all still need some quotes to inspire.

Acting is a form of art and in that art is a reflection of society. It could be your reflection, it could be the reflection of another, but the reflection is there. That’s why we love to go to the movies, to relate or to see another part of the world that we didn’t think was there. As an actor, child or not, creating that reflection means being vulnerable, having confidence, and being ok with the reactions of the crowds.
