    I'm 12 year old girl

    and every since I was little I've been wanting to act but its just that I can't act in front of people , I'm shy. I guess my question here is how do I get out of my shyness and how do I become better at acting

    I have finished school

    and I want a career as an actor. I have recently looked on a bunch of actors websites and they all want resumes. The only work I have done is a lead role when I was in the second grade. But that was about it. So why is it that I am a college graduate but haven't been in any...

    I've always wanted to be in a romantic/drama,

    I think it would be about Vanessa a quirky, awkward semi nerdy lady who lives alone in her one bedroom apartment with her two guinea pigs and worked at a daycare center, she goes to work and comes home, that was her life but eventually that changed when one night her friends...

    Imagine being in a film like the "The Hunger

    Games" I know they aren't real. But to be an actress who gets to film all these amazing scenes along side amazing people. It would be the perfect life and one I wish I could live.

    I do .... I think I've got a good chance of

    'making it' should I decide to pursue acting. But I haven't decided to go for it yet. Perhaps soon. Perhaps.

    Lights! Camera! Action!

    Someone told me to follow my dreams and achieve my goals. From months that turned into years of thinking I've realized that singing & dancing were a long life passion of mine. I entered middle school believing that I'd follow in my mom's footsteps and make my way into medical...

    I Am Officially An Actress

    Not likely to get famous for it though. I do not want to be in the film industry or anything like that. Plays are my thing. I have been in three contemporary productions so far playing the overcompetent teen murderer on the run, the mentally fat unconfident lady with a bad...

    Not Famous

    I don't want to be some great big star, I just want to perform. Ever since I was little I've been a good actress, I can cry in an instant and do most accents pretty well. I can make people believe all kinds of things, I once even convinced an ex, who I was with at the time, that...

    "Acting-shmacting, Make Up Yer Mind."

    It really is what I'd like to do for the rest of my life. I realized last year, as we were pulling out of the parking lot at CLU, where I work and act in a Shakespeare camp with other teens. My mother mentioned something about me never looking as happy as when I was on stage...

    It'S Stupid I Know.
