Question: Can I go to the acting agency to get an agent!?
I've been to some auditions, but I never got a callback!. I was wondering if I can go other agency's offices!. If I go to one, can I get an agent from that!? Do I have to schedule an interview!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
Being an actress, I have learned that if you want to make it you're not going to without these things
1!. Talent!. You have to be really good
2!. You have to want it more than anything else
3!. Get experience, start out small (school plays maybe!?)
4!. Don't think that you're going to be famous because you have an agent

you have to get smart first, go to university and get some credit in theatre, then go to National Theatre School, be in TONS of plays (so many you can hardly remember them all) THEN once you've got this, go and get an agent!.

also beware, because some agents will screw you out of tons of money for nothing, and there are NO promises in this business!. It's hard, and compeditive, and if you're going to make it, you have to be the best that there is, and have a background to support you!.

Always schedule an interview!. The agent might be busy, and someone who just walks in on the could be really unhelpful and annoying!.

also, it makes you look unprofessional!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
