Thoughts About An Actor Salary

Intervew With Actor Adam Karst Part 4:
An Actor Salary

Wendy Ward

In part 3 of this interview, actor Adam Karst gives the newcomer some advice about what it takes to start acting as a career and to get work. In this, the last part to this exclusive 4-part interview here on ActingCareerStartUp.com with this young Isreali actor, he talks about his actor salary as it relates to his most recent work on a film with and for Jean Claude Van Dam.

Tony: I have one last question for you Adam. Without asking you exactly how much money you made working on that film, because I would never ask you that, but what I would like to know is, is the amount of money they paid you for your work on the film in line with what you thought the job you did was worth?

Adam: No. I even had a discussion with my girlfriend at the time about the amount and she was right.

Tony: She was right about what? Was the amount more or less than you expected, I mean your actor salary for the project?

Adam: It was much less, but it was a good amount of money and it gives me a lot of breathing room now. I expected more, especially because I actually had two jobs on the film.

Tony: What was the second job?

Adam: I had told Jean Claude that I had worked as a sky marshall and as a body guard and did security work in Israel. I also told him that I had worked in the states and in other countries. When I told him that, he was very excited and happy and he asked me if I could teach the actors to shoot and handle weapons properly? I told him, “Sure.” Then I became the weapons expert. So I actually had two jobs. They didn’t pay me for the second one though.

I also have to say that I negotiated the job myself. I didn’t have an agent to do it for me. When I compared my actor salary with what some of the other actors made, I was about in the middle; better than some and less than others. That’s what happens when you are not union. If I had been a union actor, I would have made a lot more money.

But I also have to say that the experience of working on that film and getting a chance to work together with Jean Claude Van Dam was an experience that you can not put a price tag on. It was priceless and more important than the actor salary. It was worth more than money at this point in my career.

Tony: Thank you so much for sharing with us that information about your actor salary and for the entire interview here on ActingCareerStartUp.com! We really appreciate it!

Adam: You're welcome brother. I was glad to do it.

It's very rare to be able to see someone's audition! You'll definitely want to seeAdam's audition video and the official trailer of the film he co-stars in The Eagle Path Starring Jean Claude Van Dam and Adam Karst! You'll find those videos in part 1 of this exclusive interview here on ActingCareerStartUp.com.

This is great stuff!
