Hi Tony!
Most people don’t even take the time to tell a person how to reach their goal. I want to thank you for everything and for responding to my messages. Sometimes I just test people to see if they really care about my career and you do. You can continue to send me some tips on how I can accomplish my goals, because you inspire me a lot. Thank you for caring.

How To Start An Acting Career

Are you looking for information about how to start an acting career?
Well, you've've come to the right place!

Check out Tony's famous video about the top three things you need to do to start an acting career and have success long-term.

When I First Started

Several years ago when I first started to get interested in acting, I was desperately looking for someone, anyone to sit down with me and take me through what I needed to do to be successful with regard to how to start an acting career. But, I couldn't find anyone, so I had to figure things out for myself. I did and I started to get some results. To date I have done voice over, independent films, industrials (live events and corporate videos: which is what I love!), commercial print, extra work and television. I vowed that when I did start to get work as an actor and start to get on my way, that I would share whatever knowledge I had to help young and new actors to start to achieve the success they want in their acting careers.Every day, I do more to further my career. How about you?

The Actor Quiz

Among the actors who fill out my actor quiz and who have come to me to find out how to start an acting career, the most common answers to some important questions are:

*Have been acting for more than five years

*Have been working as an actor on the average of two days per month

*Have not been taking acting classes

*Don't know the different acting techniques that there are

*Don't have a solid acting technique to fall back on
