You need to play a role if you want a great theatrical headshot. Think of different characters that you play well, or think of different characters in films or plays that you know of.
These types of characters should be what drives your decision to behave a certain way or give off a certain mood in the headshot. Remember to tell your headshot photographer what characters you are going for, because he or she should be able to help you get there.
But what really makes a great headshot is not just the character, but the lighting and background that supports it. You want a photographer who can give you an excellent look in a photo that can really make yours stand out among all the other headshots.
