Question: Beginners acting help!? !?
I'm a senior in high school in Chicago and moving to Los Angeles this june to attend UCLA!. As of right now I'm planning to go to law school, but I've been taking classes also at Act One Studio in Chicago!. It's a really good acting school, and I didn't really think of taking acting as a career but with moving to LA there are plenty of opportunities!. I'm not in the actors union and I don't have any professional photos!. Any advice on how to get started or if it would be a good choice to try!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

Maybe getting into a lot of local theater will give you a push!. You're gonna needs something to get yourself noticed so take some shots of yourself even if you have to take them!. And usually theaters have some body with a good camera and a little enginuity you can actually make em look pretty good!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

You won't be able to go to law school and be an actor, too difficult!. You don't need to be in the union, but you need to get ready to be an actor!. That is what I do, advise people who want to become actors!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
