    I know I keep coming at you guys with different

    things every day but omg.. I've loved acting since I was young. I used to make skits and act them out with my cousins. My sister always told me I was a good actor, and she'd never lie about something like that which is why I believe her when she tells me (: This is weird, and...

    I can act like any character I know from any

    shows or stories. I often play those acting games with my best friend where we act like a certain character we chose for each other for about a week or even a month anytime anywhere. I often got stuck with the creepiest, insane or most perverted character for some reason...

    Acting In Horror Movies Is Fun

    I have been in two local low budget Independent horror flicks (Splatter Movie and Basic Slaughter). I had small roles and just played a victim that ended up getting killed in both films, but it was a really fun experience for me. I hope that i will get a chance to act in...

    One of my dreams in life is to act,

    and, I discovered it through acting in my school. I did two school plays last year, but only got the roles of extras, so, this year I figured that I'd get a major role now that the seniors are gone, and I was cut completely. I was devastated, and then one of my friends pointed...

    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...

    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.

    Film is all I've ever thought about.

    Yes I've thought about guys, sex, love, money, makeup and food, but the main thing I've thought about one hundred percent every day with a passion and pure love for is film. I fell in love with films at the young age of 5. I used to watch all the cartoons on TV and disney...

    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.

    This is not so much about acting
