Here you will find some of the most frequently asked questions we receive regarding acting and actor training. If you have a question, please contact us.

How do I become an actor?

One of the most appealing things about becoming an actor, and why there are so many of them, is that it’s very easy to be one. Just act. Do the things that actors do. Act in the most literal meaning of the word. Study. Audition. Perform. Where a lot of people go wrong in their desire to become an actor, is they see people who are already successful, such as broadway stars or celebrities, and they don’t see the hard work that got those people to where they are now. Part of the craft of acting is making it look easy. Making it look easy is hard. But in terms of becoming an actor, you can become an actor right now. Taking a class is a good place to start.
