Hello Helen: Many aspiring actors begin by participating in school plays or local theater productions. In television and film, actors usually start out in smaller roles or independent movies and work their way up to bigger productions.

It takes many years of practice to develop the skills needed to be a successful actor, and actors never truly finish training. They work to improve their acting skills throughout their career. Many actors continue to train through workshops, rehearsals, or mentoring by a drama coach.

All you have to focus on is finding the right college for you. The college must offer either theatre arts, performing or drama courses. You need experience before you can even think of fame. I wish you the best on your journey.
