Steven had had his first starring role in kindergarten, playing a talking stone in a class play. From the moment that he heard the applause and took his bows, he knew he wanted to be an actor. He “drew” his name as it would look at a theatre. In his mind, he “practiced” his acceptance speech to the Academy Awards.“I want to thank my agent…” he imagined himself saying to the crowd.

By sixth grade, he was used to starring in school productions. He played Romeo in this year’s Junior Shakespeare Festival. His brother said he was probably the first Romeo in the history of theater to have braces. Steven liked everything about acting–except for his brother’s comments about it. Brad was not interested in acting.

Steven dreamed of going to California or New York when he got older. Meanwhile, he read the “trades” at the library – the newspapers and magazines of the acting business. He couldn’t believe it when he saw that there was going to be an open casting call in his own Midwestern city. He begged his parents to take him, but they worked on Saturdays and they couldn’t take the day off. He was forced to ask his older brother, the critic.

The part called for a boy who looked about 14. Steven figured he could pass. Unlike Brad, Steven looked older than his age. Brad, on the other hand, at 16 looked more like 14. The boys arrived early at the theater where the try-outs were taking place. There were already over 200 kids there. Steven picked up his application. Brad picked up one, too– “just for fun,” he said. Each of them then studied the short script they’d been handed. Like all the other kids, they mouthed the words over and over. Some kids found quiet spaces to read their lines aloud, with all the right emotion.

Steven asked Brad to listen to his reading. “Okay, but you have to listen to mine, too.”

“Deal,” Steven answered. Then he read, and, as usual, he was good. Next, it was Brad’s turn. Steven couldn’t believe what he was seeing and hearing. Why hadn’t Brad ever tried out for a play? Where had he gotten all this talent all of a sudden? He asked his brother, “Why haven’t you tried before?”

“I was waiting for something big,” Brad replied.

○    Soon they heard their names called. It was their turn to perform. Smiling with confidence, Brad performed in such a wonderful way that all the judges couldn’t help applauding for him. Having seen how well his brother had done, Steven suddenly realized he would be beaten in his proudest area by Brad. Stressed and nervous, he read the lines in a trembling voice. Later, Brad said to Steven, “Remember, you should never confine yourself to applause and cheers.” The next day, word came that Brad had indisputably got the part. Despite depression, Steven still felt proud for his brother. Meanwhile, he said to himself, “Brad, I will catch up with you.”

A decade later, at that year’s Academy Awards Ceremony, the two brothers appeared together. They both became famous actors. When it came to Steven’s speech, he said to the crowd, “I once failed to get the part for a casting call. However, thanks to my brother’s words and great effort, my dream has come true.” Winning awards isn't the final destination, the growth and improvement are the best treasures he has received from these years’ hard work. After all, no matter what happens, never for a moment will he stop his love for acting.
