living as a little person

Just wanted to talk about life...


Because of a glandular disorder i retained a pre-pubescent voice and a small size and childlike looks. I've played child roles in local amateur theatre (even though i'm a guy I've been called upon to play female as well male children).



Re: living as a little person

Hey @kergulen welcome to RO! You can definitely chat about life here Smiley Happy


How were your experiences with acting in child roles and are you still acting?

Re: living as a little person

@Mona-RO Yes I'm still acting in local suburban theatre. I do the occasional ad playing a child. Again even though I'm betesticled, I have played female children as well. Playing female children has been tough sometimes.

Re: living as a little person

Hey @kergulen thanks for sharing your experience here. I think i'm hearing that people are projecting an identity on you that does not match who you actually are. That must be constantly painful Smiley Sad 


How can we help? 

Re: living as a little person

not sure. It can be difficult playing children when the actors around you forget you are not a child. Playing female children... I was the star of a Woolworths commercial playing a female child.
