I did what you said and I got two interviews with two agents! Thank you! Sorry but can I ask you how do I prepare to go meet the agent? What do I have to do?

Is it better to get an acting coach or an acting teacher at the beginning of your acting career?
This is a question that many people ask themselves when they first become interested in acting. I had the pleasure of talking with Gary Spatz, Hollywood children's acting teacher and coach, founder and director of The Playground Young Actors' Conservatory in Los Angeles. This short video here below is just part of an exclusive interview he granted me for the visitors here to ActingCareerStartUp.com. In this part he talks about what the difference is between an acting teacher and coach and also tells which one he believes is better for someone at the beginning of their acting career.
Given that many of the visitors to ActingCareerStartUp.com are in their teens with a desire to be on Disney Channel, I thought that tapping into Garys experience would be exactly what our visitors need to hear. You will find other parts of Garys interview sprinkled thought this website.
See this part of the exclusive video interview with acting coach Gary Spatz here below.
As you have seen, Gary has been in the business for many years and has coached such stars as Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake. His most recent students include Dylan and Cole Sprouse of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody as well as the young stars of the movies Judy Moody And The Not Bummer Summer and Super 8. Gary has worked with many young actors on Disney productions over the years. Visit the website of The Playground Young Actors' Conservatory.
While getting an acting coach has its advantages, taking acting classes at the beginning also has a series of benefits that cannot be ignored.

I want to say you changed my life. I want to be an actress so bad, but i began losing motivation when I couldn't figure out what to do. And then I found you! Thanks to you, I'm taking my first acting classes next month! Yippee!
