Getting into acting

Hints, Tips and Opinions

A heck of a lot of people would like to be actors.  It’s a hard way to earn a living, so if you’re keen to make it your career rather than your hobby it makes sense to learn as much about the industry as you can.  Getting jobs – just getting auditions – is so much harder than anyone outside the industry can usually fathom.  After all, we only see the successes; we don’t see the thousands and thousands of actors (and people who would like to be actors) who are out of work.

The statistics are alarming, but actors hope to be in the small group who do get work.  How do you give yourself the best chance to be a working actor?  I hope some of the pages and blog posts here will be helpful or thought-provoking – or both.
