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?

I entertain questions every single day about how to start an acting career. There is one thing you should know, however, it will take time.
On this page you will find some helpful tips and guides with regard to what you will need to do.
Whats your approach to your acting career?
You can have a short term strategy, which has you going from saying, I want to be an actress-actor. to saying, Where can I find acting auditions? and, How can I get an agent? What youre really saying is, Im going to try it, even though I have no training and no skill (maybe because my family and friends tell me that I have what it takes, that I should be an actress, that I make people laugh, etc. ) and see what happens! The reality is that between wanting to be an actress and getting an agent or auditioning is a huge step that is being missed here. It has to do with a minor detail, which is learning how to act.
Or you can say, I want to be an actress-actor. Where can I find out what its really like? Where can I get more information about it? Where can I find out what kind of classes to take and where to find them? After that first declaration of the desire to pursue acting, this is a much more intelligent series of questions, coming from someone who is humble and realistic enough to realize that an acting career, just like anything else must be built from the ground up in order to have a real chance at long-term success. This approach would then be the grounds for a long-term strategy.
Here below you will find links to pages that will really help you to learn how to start an acting career and build it from the ground up.
Step 7: Everything you need to know about how to find work as an actor at the beginning of your career.

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!
