    I’m 15 and I want to start getting into acting. I’ve always had a passion for acting but was unsure because I have general anxiety and the thought of acting in front of people makes me nervous, I mean I still would do it i’d just be real nervous and it’d probably mess me up as I act. I want to start acting around maybe 17 , I want to take a drama class but my school does not have one so I can’t really start off with school plays. Anyways, does anyone have any tips or advice on how to get rid of having the fear of publicly speaking? And/or tips on some acting skills I should keep in mind?’

  • Would you rather be a successful child actor who gets less work as they get older or a new 15+ actor who gets good roles later?

    I'm 16 and want to pursue my acting career. But I feel like starting this late is a big setback compared to the now successful actors who started when they were younger (8-14)

    I'm a 16 year old girl in a wealthy family from Australia, i've been taking up screenacting classes and about to join a talent agency for auditions for commercials etc so i can hopefully get into this much more successful agency. I just feel like my family is wanting me to succeed and it's alot of pressure because alot of actors fail in Australia. And i honestly don't know what else to do because i don't really see myself doing anything else other than acting. Is there any other careers that will suit my situation? What are your thoughts? Thanks so much!

  • How to walk with a convincing limp?

    Best answer: I have a very cheap trick I ve employed before, and that s to curl all my toes up as much as I can. it s very slight but it impedes your walking a bit.

    Best answer: I have a very cheap trick I ve employed before, and that s to curl all my toes up as much as I can. it s very slight but it impedes your walking a bit.

    The trick with any endowment you give a character is to get it to the point where it s almost pavlovian. Your body just knows to get into that position when you play that character. So that you can focus on the inner life of the character whilst you re playing it. I do this just by repetition.

    Ultimately, actors all use different techniques and you need to find what s right for you. I find physical endowments very useful.

  • Just started getting involved in acting/musical theatre shows and very nervous about it all?

    Best answer: As you get more training and experience you should start to feel more confident in your skills. So do look into acting classes. Voice and dance lessons can be fun too.

    Best answer: As you get more training and experience you should start to feel more confident in your skills.

    So do look into acting classes. Voice and dance lessons can be fun too. Audition for what you can - school plays, community theater and the like. Remember that the people auditioning you are on your side! They want you to do well. But there's a lot that goes into casting a show besides the audition - much of it is out of your control. You could give a great audition and still not be cast or get the part that you want. But if you do well, they may keep you in mind for future projects. Think of an audition more as a mini-performance rather then a contest. It's a chance to show people something you hopefully love doing - performing! Even if you don't get cast, you had a chance to perform.

    Don't expect to be "discovered" or something, that's not how the industry works. Professional acting is a tough BUSINESS and is much more then just auditioning for things. For now - have fun!

  • How to audition for an acting school? Would dance be a useful thing for me to be able to do when performing?

    Hey, I’m 14 years old and I would really like a future career in theatre (I love performing and acting, but I would also want to try directing or script writing). I took music gcse and I’m hoping to take Drama at A level. My aunt found an advert for an audition for Pauline Quirke’s Academy and I would be interested, however I’ve never done a performance before, and I wouldn’t know how to do an acting performance (do I need to find a monologue or sing or dance?). My singing voice is average, but I’ve been thinking about taking dance classes (jazz or tap) as it might be useful if I’m studying theatre and performance at university. I don’t actually know how to dance but I believe I’m a strong actor and it’s what I love (I don’t mean to sound cheesy). I’m not looking for ‘fame’ or anything, and I know acting can be competitive. I think that going to an acting school could help me to improve and learn techniques as well as having this experience. OVERALL: What do I need to do to prepare for this audition? Do you think I should take up dance? I think that if I learned to dance I would really enjoy it as well. Thanks!

  • Which one is correct in grammatically?

    Best answer: First - your question. It should be - "Which one is grammatically correct?" The answer depends on what the sense is.

    Best answer: First - your question.
    It should be - "Which one is grammatically correct?"

    The answer depends on what the sense is.
    "He is a stage actor" implies that he is an actor who only (or mainly) acts on stage - not to camera.

    "He is an actor on the stage" means that he is currently acting in a stage play or show - but most people wouldn't say that at all.
    They might say "He's currently acting in a stage play".

    I'm 14 right now and I really want to do acting on tv and as cringey as it sounds, I think that's kindof the dream I'm trying to chase after. Ive already joined my schools plays and musicals last year and this year and gotten pretty good roles. I'm also watching acting lessons and stuff to help become a better actor. However, thinking realistically, my dream isn't going to come true. I'm just going to get rejected and it takes a lot of money and time to get close to being considered for auditions for tv shows. Also, even if I think I'm a good actor, directors for shows wont look for some random person and no one knows me so its pretty much impossible. This is what I REALLY wanna be when I'm an adult and I live really close to New York City, but should I keep trying to chase this dream or am I just going to get disappointed and end up living in a cardboard box on the streets?? And is there a way to somehow become a better actor and have enough stuff for a resume and to get noticed for when I'm older. Thanks if you read this far :3

    Best answer: Editing can do wondrous things....

    But, even when they are not in the studio together, they can listen to the track to date and so fit in with the other voices. The recording of their voices is usually onto a separate track, even when they are in the studio together, and hence it's up to the editor to make sure their voices fit where they are supposed to. And the actors do need to synch with the "lip" movement of the cartoon characters.
