How do you start an acting career?
I want to be on television, with young actors such as myself. I am 13 years old, and would like to find a way to get started. I know you should take some acting classes, but what if none are available locally? Would producers even LOOK at you? Also, do you have to be picture perfect, as in looks? I'm on the chubby side, but I am told to have a great personality. I'm getting thinner with age, but I want to know if I would be wasting my time, just to be turned down for such a cruel reason. Need pictures? Just ask :)
