Acting has been a dream of mine since around the age of eight. I always enjoyed the thrill that came from watching action-packed films and not knowing what to expect. To become an actor would mean so much in the aspect that I can truly say I am living my dream. Although the life may seem glamorous, it is a very difficult field to get in and requires dedication and motivation in order to be sucessful.
When I first did my actual stage performance, I then realized I definately wanted to be an actor. I portrayed the character, Doctor William Chumley, the Psyciatrist, in the play: Harvey -- a comedy of sorts. Days and days of rehearsal and hours of memorizing lines. Though some would think it's a waste of time, I clearly enjoyed every minute of it because it was the feeling of accomplishing something unique.

I absolutely love entertaining people which is why I am dedicated to becoming an actor.

There is over one million actors in the United States and little under seventy-thousand jobs for that field. So with that fact in mind, it is best to find a day job until the acting career takes off. To be sucessful in film acting, it is absolutely crucial to have an acting agent.
In order to get an acting agent, the actor would have to be an experienced performer and must show exquisite attributes to their talent. An acting agent goes out in the business and find acting jobs, they will schedule auditions, and will be your prime-negotiator...
