    Unfortunately, I feel

    that I joined the union too soon. There are more roles for non-Union, and now have to compete with people with far more credits. I'm sure it's a great move for people with more experience/connections--but it's just not working out for me.

    Especially in high school,

    you can find yourself in playing other people. It sounds weird, but acting gave me so much confidence and helped me so much, I couldn't live without it.

    I love acting . I did a few small acting plays

    when I was young . I tried out for one play in high school with some friends and didn't get the part. I felt a little embarrassed because I spoke louder on one line than I mention to. But it all worked out in the end. The director asked if I wanted to work backstage and I loved...

    I really love to act.

    The only sad thing that there is no drama clubs where I live. Only sometimes at school I get to act out scenes in my history class. Sometimes my history teacher would let us write our own plays with a partner(s) and we could act them out in front of the class. It's really fun. I...

    which I know sounds big-headed but I don't have many talents. When my character feels rage, I feel rage, when my character feels sadness, I feel sadness. Obviously since I'm still in school I had some options to choose(I live in England so I don't get 6 to choose from, I get 2...
