I use the now-largely-regarded-as-humorous (or pretentious) word thespian, since I have never really done much acting (although I have, sometimes, referred to myself-in the sense of deliberately acquiring a persona-as "a real-life actor"). Nevertheless, I participated in a stage production or two in grade school; was a member of my high school Thespian Club (as shown here); performed as the character Ekart in Berthold Brecht's play, Baal, as part of a fellow student's class project at the University of Kentucky; and much later was an extra in a couple of movies (see Movie Extra).
