There's an element of RISK being an actor.  You're EXPOSING yourself to some degree with a good chance of looking like a total fool.

In fact, it has been suggested that people become actors for the same reason they like extreme sports.  Both have similar challenges that test one's vulnerability. 

After jumping out of airplanes for a few years I discovered an adrenaline rush can also be found being an actor ... with less chance of being KILLED. 

But, the ACTING challenge (at least for me) is getting out of my own way ... giving up control to the CHARACTER so he can jump inside and become alive.  Sometimes it's very uncomfortable when he wants to do things I wouldn't do ... or uses secret fears & emotions deep inside my personal space.
