We so often hear about someone: "He's a TV star!" Who is it? How did someone achieve fame, what helped or hindered, is it possible to repeat someone's path to fame? Let's try to figure it out.
"Telestar" - concept and terminology
In order to understand who this is - a TV star, we first analyze the lexical meaning of the word itself.
The concept of "star" means a person who has achieved great success, known to many, attracting attention and interest. The area of achievement can be very different. Maya Plisetskaya is a ballet prima, Sergey Petrovich Botkin is a luminary of Russian medicine, and John Collins is a star of British literature.
The prefix "tele-" to the word "star" determines the meaning of the new word. A TV star is any person who has achieved fame on television. He has his own circle of fans and attracts the attention of the press and journalists.
A journalist, an actor, a writer, a scientist, a doctor, and generally a representative of any profession can become a TV star. The main thing is not just to get on the blue screen, but to please the viewer, gain fans, interest in something, and can become an object of imitation.
What qualities will make you a TV star?
A TV star is a person who is both a journalist, an artist, and a showman. He speaks well, thinks quickly, is resourceful and witty. He has a bright charisma, a broad outlook, is able to support a conversation in various areas. Does not get lost in front of the camera and a large number of viewers. Knows how to calmly respond to provocations and behaves with dignity in the most acute situations.
A TV star is someone who has become famous, who deserves attention and imitation, who has honed his talents with long and hard work.
Proof that a real TV star must have all of the above qualities
First of all, a TV star is a favorite of the public, viewers should watch programs in one breath, without looking up from the screen. Nowadays, TV shows are taking on a completely different look. Leading, as a rule, turn into showmen. They think over the scenario of their program and keep the viewer in intrigue during the entire time of the broadcast. Remember the programs of the famous Andrey Malakhov. Agree, not every TV presenter is capable of keeping the viewer in suspense. This is what separates the ordinary presenters from the real TV stars.
Many shows today are filmed in real time. This means that its participants must be able to quickly adapt, have a good reaction and resourcefulness. Like, for example, Ksenia Sobchak. She is never lost.
Alexa Chung first became famous for her sharp tongue, and only then she was calledstyle icon.
And who doesn't remember Valdis Pelsh, who broke all the records in the world for tongue twisters and the longest lines?
Difficult path, or How to get into the stream?
During the Soviet Union, in order to get on the TV screen, you had to have a theater education behind you. Only in this way did men and women become recognizable personalities. They conducted news reviews and led various New Year's lights. Some went into acting and starred in films, but many took their bar only at the level of a TV presenter.
Today, to become a TV star, it is not necessary to graduate from a theater university or the faculty of journalism. Everything has become much easier, to the point that the leading channels hold specialized contests.
It's easier for TV presenters to become TV stars. They are already on the air, now you need to please the viewer. In our time, many educational institutions have been formed that, for a certain amount, will train everyone who wants to be a TV channel presenter. This course lasts no more than a year. During this time, the student will learn to speak correctly, behave competently in front of the camera, and adapt in unforeseen situations during filming. After training, the graduate will be able to edit the footage and compose popular stories. Further several ways:
- Get an internship at some film studio. There you can start with an ordinary assistant or illuminator, as Ivan Demidov started.
- Show yourself in some TV show, as Mikhail Galustyan or Marina Kravets were lucky.
- Participate in contests. It is possible that a lucky chance will present itself soon.
Do looks matter?
Many believe that a TV star is primarily a bright appearance. But often in life, the TV presenter does not have a particularly interesting appearance. So makeup is everything? No, it's not about him at all. An example would be America's highest paid TV presenter, Oprah Winfrey. It is unlikely that she will win a beauty contest even on a local scale. But she is fearless, without complexes, speaks confidently, knows how to listen to her interlocutor, feels the audience perfectly.
Another important point. A TV star is necessarily a good diction. It is necessary to speak clearly and beautifully. The timbre of the voice also matters, it should not annoy or cause laughter. Any professional comes up with some recognizable manner of communication or characteristic gestures. Many study their facial expressions in front of the mirror, rehearse smiles.
The title obliges
A TV star is always a public person. His life is watched very closely: all the achievements and failures are discussed in the press with great taste. But most importantly, the fans are just maniacally imitating everything that their favorite TV star does. The significance of all the responsibility of celebrity behavior is very clearly reflected through the Internet search engines. The analysis carried out by Yandex showed that the vast majority of user requests concern TV stars. Hairstyle, manner of dressing, gastronomic tastes, whererested, with whom he lives and a million more questions!
I would like to turn to TV stars and paraphrase Exupery: “Millions are guided by you! You are responsible for those you have conquered!”
