Who are you talking about? I checked the dic. and ref.: the only two people listed were a Govenor and representive in Kansas.

If you’re talking about Jean Sibelius, the great Finnish composer and the single violin concerto he wrote, and feel it can be in anyway likened to “murder”, I feel very sorry for your – no, a great pity.

norway careers

Would you like to travel to the Netherlands to immerse yourself in Dutch culture (think clogs, cheese and Flemish art) but continue your course in English? Could learning Asian business skills in a local language, and a few games of tea house mahjong, improve your global career prospects? Gain a competitive edge against your peers by studying at the University of Oklahoma, world-renowned for their research and teaching in atmospheric sciences. Maybe soaking up the Madrid sun, feasting on tapas and polishing your Spanish, while continuing your studies, is more your speed, or you might like to study alongside the scientists who played an integral role in the discovery of the Higgs Boson while exploring Israel’s most dynamic and diverse city.

As a Monash student, you can do all of this, and more, with an overseas exchange. Find out more about our exchange program here monash.edu/study-abroad/outbound/exchange/

First acting is not exempt from international law. You can’t just come to the US and work as an actor – you need all the necessary paperwork to legally work as an actor in the US – things like a work visa or a green card and other paperwork.

Second, there are not a bunch of open auditions for professional work even if you could legally work in the US. For most professional work you have to be invited to audition, usually through a talent agent. And there are things like actor unions which give preference to actors who are members of the union.

So professional acting is business – not a lottery. You can’t just audition and hope to be “discovered”. That’s not how it works.

If you’re interested in an acting career you could focus on getting training and experience in Norway first, and build a good reputation there. Then look into coming to work in the US.
