Carol Beaugard graduated from the William Esper Studios, studied at the Atlantic Theater School and did improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade. Carol is the first Hispanic actress to perform the role of Yente, the Matchmaker in the Broadway first national tour of “Fiddler on the Roof”. Directed by Tony winning director Bartlett Sher and Music Director Ted Sperling and starred in the role for 492 shows.

How long have you been a part of the industry?
I acted when I was younger but began to pursue acting professionally, after years working in radio, public relations and event planning by taking a full time job with Major League Baseball (MLB.com) in order to attend acting school at the William Esper Studios in 2016. It took me 3 years to graduate and I began a national tour within months of graduation. While I was in school I performed at Carnegie Hall, Off Broadway, and in TV, indie and short films and local commercials. I’d say I have seriously been working as a professional actress since 2018.

What inspired you to pursue acting, writing, directing?
I have wanted to act since I could talk. My mother said I sang before I could speak. I cannot remember a time when I didn’t want to be an actress, and I sang in my church choir, did all my H.S. shows, and did community theater. I went to college and studied broadcasting at Emerson College in Boston but they had a great theater program and I took lots of acting and film courses. Last year I wrote my first screenplay. I created my own production company and produced and directed my first short film (being distributed this coming year). I’m an avid old movie buff and I think acting was always something at the center of my universe, so it’s an extension of my soul to want to act. I think it’s a gift and privilege to perform and touch people so they can channel what’s in their hearts and soul.

What work are you most proud of recently?
I’m enormously proud to be the only Hispanic actress to perform the role of Yente, the Matchmaker in the Broadway first national tour of “Fiddler on the Roof”. I was directed by Tony winning director Bartlett Sher and Music Director Ted Sperling and starred in the role for 492 shows.

What advice would you give to fellow actors, writers, directors?
Perform and work at your craft every single day, without exception. Read plays every week and see plays. I hear many actors say they only want to do films, tv or commercials but studying theater is the best way to hone your craft. Take as many classes as possible; on-camera scene study, on-camera audition techniques, acting for commercials, and theatrical training (whatever school of study attracts you). If you’re financially strapped – GET A JOB! – and volunteer to be a reader or a free intern maybe in exchange for classes. There is no excuse not to study. It wasn’t easy for me, midway through life to opt to go back to school but acting is for people who need to do it – not for people to want to do it – so where there’s a will there’s a way. At his Golden Globe acceptance speech Sam Rockwell told how he rode a bicycle as a Chinese Food delivery boy throughout the city to make money to attend William Esper Studios. Peter Dinklage lived in a Brooklyn apartment with no heat and sometimes didn’t eat but he pursued his craft. Do anything you have to in order to train, train and get more training, and training continues forever. Never stop training and working to improve your craft.

How do you stay motivated and active in your career?
As I mentioned, acting is something that drives every moment of my life so it’s easy to stay motivated. It’s a hard life and can be discouraging – rejection is constant. I just have an unshakeable faith that I am doing what I’m called to do and I approach every day as an opportunity. I’m grateful for every audition as a chance to act, and I try not to get tied to the results, just to the joy of acting. I’m a big believer in the law of attraction so if you put out loving and dedicated energy the universe brings that back to you tenfold. Also uplifting and encouraging your fellow actors, directors, writers and creative friends is a wonderful way to stay happy and motivated. Be inspired, not jealous – there is enough prosperity and success for everyone in the universe. Just believe, believe, and everything will unfold exactly as it’s supposed to – but do the work! Success comes when opportunity meets preparation.

What are you working on now?
I just shot my first national network TV commercial. I can’t wait to see it when it airs. I’m represented by A3 Artists Agency and Bright Artists Management, and I’m looking forward to future auditions and to booking my first recurring, guest star, or co-starring role on TV or in a feature film. I also look forward to booking my first Broadway show.
