How to Start An Acting Career No Matter Where You Live

  3. 3. Many people looking to start careers as actors are often deterred by the untouchable grandeur bestowed upon successful modern-day actors. How can that ever be achieved? The truth is that besides having influential connections, the hope of your acting career depends entirely on you. 
  4. 4. Training One of the best steps to take as an amateur in the field of acting is to become well trained in the tried-and-true acting techniques, such as method acting and improvisation.
  5. 5. These skills will expand your flexibility as an actor, helping you to understand acting less as a hobby of a talent and more as the art form which it truly is. When you take acting seriously and appreciate the fact that good acting and a successful career only results from hard work and dedication, you will be ready to take on the responsibility of playing a part.
  6. 6. Another important thing to remember as an amateur actor is that no job and no role is too small. The likelihood that the first role in which you are cast is a leading role is slim to none, and this humbling notion should help you to appreciate the significance of every role in a play, film, and even in a commercial.
  7. 7. Auditioning Once you have become a well-rounded and flexible actor, your job as a determined hopeful is to audition at every opportunity possible. Beginning with small-time local productions is a surprisingly good route to take.
  8. 8. The whole point of auditioning everywhere that you can is to achieve a level of experience that a more serious director can appreciate and respect. But many actors make the mistake of acting in the same basic roles and styles everywhere they go.
  9. 9. It is always good to build your acting resume as diversely as possible. This shows that you are willing and able to fill a variety of different roles, which is a strong recommendation when you are just beginning your career. 
  10. 10. In addition, the roles you audition for shouldn't always be lead roles. Try out for a few minor roles; this will give you room to study the character at length and interpret them in your own unique way.
  11. 11. Although this can be done in a leading role, it can prove more beneficial to your acting technique and to your self-confidence to have the opportunity to steal the show with a minor role. Never underestimate the power given to smaller characters. 
  12. 12. The best advice that anyone can give you as a rising actor is to work hard and apply yourself, because your efforts will, in time, prove fruitful.
