Is this a good way to express the idea in English?
An actor’s career, more than forged by oneself, is decided for those who hire you
The sentence is said by an actor himself.
Thanks a lot
Any more help, please
If you really want to use the forged part, try sticking it at the end:
An actor's career is shaped by those who cast/hire them rather than forged by themselves. (Though I can't say I really like it as a sentence)
An actor doesn't forge his own career. Rather, it is forged by those who hire him.
"The career of an actor is forged less by his own efforts than by the people who hire him."
