Not to be confused with Film or Show Business.

Actor (or Actress) is an active career introduced in The Sims 4: Get Famous that relies heavily on the celebrity status of the Sims.

Actors must join in one of two agencies to start getting auditions. A.I. Staffing Agency or Everyday Extras Talent Agency. Either agency will send notifications reminding their actors to find auditions and getting gigs to start getting an income.

Actors must select from a list of auditions to attend, each audition requiring the Sim to have a certain skill for the acting gig. Actors can succeed or fail in the audition. Auditions may be bypassed once the Sim reaches Level 3 in fame by obtaining the "Established Name" perk.

When actors have an acting gig, they must attend to the studio a lot and perform their daily tasks, consisting of getting their costume fitted, hair styled, practicing lines, talking with the director, etc. When the actor is ready, they can speak to the director and be directed to the main stage. In the main stage, the actor must carry out an array of actions, depending on their acting skill. If Sims do not have a high acting skill, they can choose to play it safe or do a risky performance, which can provide a significant boost if they succeed, at the risk of ruining the performance.

Agencies[edit | edit source]

Actors must choose an agency to join to be able to do an audition for gigs.

Sims in the Actor Career[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • One gig an actor can get is for a TV Show sitcom about friends called "The Urbz", which is a reference to The Urbz: Sims in the City.
  • When an actor is with the A.I. Staffing Agency, they have a chance to be given this reminder: "We ran 14 million simulations to see your outcome of your next acting gig. In all the one's you practiced your scenes before filming you had resounding success". This is a reference to the movie Avengers: Infinity War, a specific line the character Doctor Strange says.
