One of the unsung qualities of successful actors is ‘helpfulness’.
Time and time again I have observed this trait up close and personal, with great actors.
It’s easy to dismiss this trait as perhaps not that important but believe me, the industry loves helpful people and as a result they get more work.
Recently, Johnny Depp visited a primary school in London because a young girl wrote to him and asked him to visit her school. She had heard he was filming Pirates of the Caribbean close by.
To her surprise he turned up!

Being helpful stands out and you need to stand out in this industry.
