Hi Noah, being noticed in the film industry is difficult. It has been said you need that special ‘something’, that ‘Je Ne Se Quoi’ or in other words that quality that makes you attractive and special that no one can really put their finger on. I would try to release the desire to be noticed and focus on becoming a really great talent that is reliable and hard working. No one can deny it if you are talented, and fortunately there are many classes to make you better! Focus on Meisner and acting technique, but make sure you learn how to stand out in auditions. Auditions are your bread and butter, no matter how good you are or how known, you will always be required to do them. Make this your very best skill.
And lastly, be authentic. The only way we can truly learn what Je Ne Se Quoi is, is to learn to be fully ourselves. Never try to be someone else, because you will lose the magic that you already contain within you!
Taylor recommends the following next steps:
- Take some acting and auditioning courses
- Be confident in yourself
- Try, try and try again. Many people will tell you “no”. Don’t doubt yourself. You are special and have a lot to give!
