I was in a play for Latin club, not sure if that counts.

Frankly I did better remembering and delivering my lines in Latin than in English.

But I really suck as an actress, at least playing NT characters (my body won't move right for that; I actually remember often getting stuck with "weird" or "annoying" characters in school plays for that reason). I always (in English anyway) forgot my lines and couldn't get the expressions right and couldn't cry on cue or any of that stuff everyone else could do.

An autistic friend of mine was in drama club and a very good actress, though.
