    I have wanted to act since about a year ago, my mother has discouraged me & I can't stop thinking about acting, my heart aches to think she doesn't support me. A friend gave me a name of a casting agency, but my mother didn't research it, I feel very sad about it. I'm not sure what to do.

    Thank you for this video, it was very informative, I am 15, and I really want to go into acting. (My life goal is to be in some superhero movie or show) My dad is a director so I think that’s going to help me a little... I just switched to a school with the best theater program in the city, and I’m very excited. I am also doing an evaluation for an agency soon and I’m freaking out. Anyone have any advise?

    I’m an actor who is new to acting. I’ve always loved acting, and I’ve been in a musical, and I LOVE IT. The only thing is.. I’m just really nervous. I’m going to be auditioning for a group/team for acting and singing soon. I’m prepared, I’m just worried I’ll get nervous and mess up. Do you think you could help?

      Often when you lean yourself towards things everything else will follow. Jump right in! Then maybe she will see how good and professional you are and hopefully join in a bit.

      KAYDEN MERRITT 11 months ago

      You should try to build your self up as an actor if you’re really serious about it. If you just wanna be in stranger things............I don’t blame you it’s a good show.

      xlex. lxna Harley Nix ENOUGH. WITH. THIS. Stranger Things is NOT having open auditions! They have said so themselves that they will be choosing from Hollywood and are not even checking on youtube, viral videos, etc. I recommend trying the Disney channel to get to Hollywood, and maybe you will be able to be in stranger things season 4 or 5.

    I'd like to know about your acting background: How many auditions have you been on? How many paid acting jobs have you done? What type of acting training do you have? Do you have an agent? Have you done any commercials? Any TV?
