The number of famous actors without specific drama or acting training is higher than you think. You often need prior education for specialized professions, otherwise, you will not be allowed to do it. Bakers attend bakery school, plumbers go to school, and most companies don’t even qualify you for a job if you don’t have any prior education.
The working area of an actor or actress is constantly expanding from films to YouTube, Instagram, and online TV. There are many great vacancies for a job in the acting world. If you want to work as an actor, you will have to make a resume that is appealing to directors, producers, and casting agencies.
An acting agent is an essential part of any successful acting career. While you can get many auditions to act on your own, you need an agent to get auditions of a high caliber. Especially if you are in a large market such as New York or Los Angeles, an agent can open all types of doors for you.
