Actor
An ACTOR (often ACTRESS for females; see terminology ) is a person who portrays a character in a performance. The actor performs "in the flesh" in the traditional medium of the theatre , or in modern mediums such as film , radio , and television . The analogous Greek term is ὑποκριτής (_hupokritḗs_), literally "one who answers". The actor's interpretation of their role pertains to the role played, whether based on a real person or fictional character. Interpretation occurs even when the actor is "playing themselves", as in some forms of experimental performance art , or, more commonly; to act, is to create, a character in performance. Formerly, in some societies, only men could become actors, and women's roles were generally played by men or boys. When used for the stage, women occasionally played the roles of prepubescent boys

Teen Magazine
TEEN MAGAZINES are magazines aimed at female teenage readers. They usually consist of gossip, news, fashion tips and interviews and may include posters , stickers , small samples of cosmetics or other products and inserts. The teen magazine industry is overwhelmingly female-oriented. There are several publications, such as Teen Ink and Teen Voices , which cater to both male and female audiences, however publications specifically targeting teenage boys are significantly few in number. Many scholars have critiqued teen magazines, as the topics presented are narrow and only present a limited range of female roles, some believe that they are effective because of the relationship developed between magazine and reader. There is a distinct feminine space that is made by the text itself as editors of teen magazines focus on making the content of their text appropriate to the analytical ability of their readers. Along with most mainstream magazines, teen magazines are typically sold in print at supermarkets, pharmacies, bookstores and newsstands.

Stavers was editor from 1958 until 1975. She chose to cater to that particular demographic because of the many fan letters she had read from girls aged nine through 12 writing to popular celebrities in care of the magazine, and she remembered how she felt at that age and developed a formula to increase readership in that demographic.

American Bandstand
_AMERICAN BANDSTAND_ is an American music-performance show that aired in various versions from 1952 to 1989 and was hosted from 1956 until its final season by Dick Clark , who also served as producer. The show featured teenagers dancing to Top 40 music introduced by Clark; at least one popular musical act—over the decades, running the gamut from Jerry Lee Lewis to Run–D.M.C. —would usually appear in person to lip-sync one of their latest singles. Freddy "Boom Boom" Cannon holds the record for most appearances, at 110. The show's popularity helped Dick Clark become an American media mogul and inspired similar long-running music programs, such as _Soul Train _ and _ Top of the Pops _. Clark eventually assumed ownership of the program through his Dick Clark Productions company
