Arnold Schwarzenegger’s acting career

Schwarzenegger’s acting career began when he was still competing as a professional bodybuilder. He would do small roles in television as well as films. However, his start in the film industry was very slow.

The legendary bodybuilder had to struggle for almost a decade to get a lead role. In 1978, almost three years after he retired from bodybuilding, he was selected to play the lead in the high-profile film ‘Conan the Barbarian.’ This film was a turning point in his career, Arnold’s first successful film, which paved the way for many other opportunities.
