How do I become an actress?
I am a 14 year old girl and I am very pretty. I have a decent voice, have danced for 4 years in jazz, ballet and hip hop. I have been in all my school plays in middle school, took drama as an elective and have been in acting camps and classes. I haven't the faintest idea how to really get started. Do I just go audition somewhere? Even IF I got into the.. say... peanut butter comercial.. I am not really getting anywhere am I? How do I find out about auditions? How can I increase my chances? Help? I am not trying to sound concieted or anything... I just thought it could help? I know some people do modeling as well to get started but I really have no idea how to start anything. :\ Sorry lol I live in Florida

Just wait till you get a little bit older, the real world will crush your dreams. Maybe you will be stronger willed then most and spend years in auditions facing rejection after rejection until you realize your place in life is using your prettiness making a few hundred bucks a shoot in the porn biz.

You find out about auditions by looking in the "Arts" section of your Sunday paper, or in the local paper - in Louisville we have the Leo and Velocity, I don't know what they have where you live. The tricky part is that there just isn't a huge market for fourteen-year-olds - you're getting old to be a child, but too... More

first of all, learn to be a little bit modest. having confidence is good, but usually casting directors are turned off by cockiness. with that said, try auditioning. this site should be able to help you: hollywood-opportunities(dotcom)
