    prove oneself

    I'm confused with the following two sentences:
    -She proved herself a worthy successor.
    -The role gave him the chance to prove himself as an actor.

    When should I use 'as' after the construction "prove oneself"?

    Re: prove oneself

    In the second sentence, it carries a meaning of 'in the capacity'.
