Get a good film acting coach! Even though you may be a born actor, you need a good acting coach. You'll want to have a big or small resume before you get an agent. Ask your acting coach if he can tell you about upcoming plays and skits.


Promote Yourself. Now is the time to get a headshot. Make sure you get a picture taken by a professional headshot photographer. Remember, this is your calling card! Headshots are expensive but you get what you pay for. Once you find a photographer and have your photos taken, you'll need to get them printed. This is also expensive but absolutely necessary.


Become Famous in Acting Step 2.jpg Video your acting (at home or in real performances) and start to build up enough material to edit together a Show Reel (also called Demo Reel). This is your 'calling card' as an actor. Put your Show Reel online (on YouTube or your own acting website) so that you can send Casting Directors, Managers, Producers or Agents a simple email link to assess your talent.


Look for Community Plays. Though you will not get good exposure to casting directors and such, this is a good introduction to the acting industry. You will learn everything from the acting lexicon to rehearsal etiquette. True, you never know who you will meet during rehearsals or in a show or even from your acting coach, but this is just to get started. Get a friend to video every performance, for your Show Reel.

After you've been in a couple of films, ask your acting coach to help you put together a resume and Show Reel, if you don't already have one. Get it all online.


Find if you have Talent. If you know any TV or film professionals, send them links to your Show Reel or website and get some feedback! If you don't know any, use free sites like or get paid help by Googling 'professional TV advisors' like or others.Become Famous in Acting Step 4.jpg Feedback is absolutely essential if you want to impress TV and film professionals.


Find an agent. They'll have you work with photographers to get your head shot ready, and then they'll pretty much take it from there. They'll can send your head shot, Show Reel and resume to Casting Agents to try to get you parts, or - if you have it all online - you can approach them by email. Don't give up! The more talent you can demonstrate, the easier it will be.
