Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
Don't bother with the agent until you've tried out for a few plays!.
Look around for school/community plays you can try out for!. Try taking some acting courses at school or courses!.
Once you've been in a few productions and are really sure that acting is something you want to pursue, then look for an agent!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Becoming an Actress
Find every opportunity in your traveling distance that does Plays or Musicals!. Check the schools and community groups as well as professional!. Contact them and ask to be notified of any auditions!.
If you do not get a part, offer to help in any way (paint scenery, usher etc!.) Just being around the production you will learn a lot!.
Study Dance, Music and Acting!. You must be able to do at least one great and the others well enough to let the others work around you!. Find classes or instructors that have produced talent!.
Work on your image!. You have to be a go getter, with lots of confidence and at the same time come across as humble!.
Develop work ethics!. Never be late!. Never be absent!. Always be attentive!. Always show respect for others, even when you do not think they deserve it!.
If and when approached by a talent agent or agency!. Check them out carefully!. If you are too young to sign a contract, remember your parents will need to be very involved!.

They do not look at your picture and resume and go out and try to find you a job!.
You should give them enough information about your skills and decent photos of you!.
Almost all agents know where to find out about casting for theater and movies!.
When these castings are announced they look through their files to see who might have a chance!. If you appear to have a chance they will notify you!.
Until you have found work several times they are not going to go out and try to sell you to a producer!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

community theatre, musicals for teenagers, drama classes and clubs, there are also many acting classes they aren't all in hollywood!.
learn how to do a scene, monologue and how to cold read before you find an agent!. improvising is a plus!.
try out for your plays and musicals at your school!.
i think that stage acting is more fun than actual tv and movie acting, but that just me :)
good luck!Www@QuestionHome@Com

Don't bother with an agent!. If you have no experience at all, none will even go near you!.

At your age, just focus on School productions, School Drama classes, and Community Theater!. This way, you'll know if you actually want to act (and not just have stars in your eyes) and you'll have experience when you're old enough to not need your parents conscent!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
