You should be able to control your pitch, tempo and volume. In an acting position, you should be able to project your voice loudly or to whisper so that you are barely audible. You'll also need to learn how to convey emotions through speech. You may benefit from learning how to sing since some acting jobs may require the ability to sing.
You could improve your speech and voice by practicing breath control or enrolling in a public speaking class. Singing instruction can help you to develop your singing voice, as well.
