The Man Who Is Second But Prime

Supporting actors are those male artists who have a role in the film that is the most important role after the role of the leading actor in the film. Supporting actor goes through all the procedures that the leading actor has to go through. Once the actor is approached by the casting team and the producer, and even the director (if hired), he reads the script and express his views about it- if they feel positive about it, they consult with their agents and sort out the available dates so that it no two(or more) projects clash with each other.

They convey their schedule to the producers and casting offices, and if both the parties agree on the dates the actor is signed in. The supporting actor’s role is extremely important and he is awarded in the ‘Best Actor in Supporting Role’. They go through the styling session that includes costume designing, make-up and hair styling, accessories.
