Show biz always inspires me. Earlier in my life when i try to join it my parents and family forced me to complete my studies and then to join it but after my studies i got busy in my job. Maybe you will say that i am crazy person who is only inspired by watching movies and not really know anything about show biz. I have deeply studies it and i never want to be a hero, i want to be an actor. So whats you advice for me and do you know any actor closely. Have you met any superstars in real life.

Join workshops and/or take classes! And do everything from tv to film to theater and commercials! And always always learn new things. Take care of your health because an actor's instrument is his body.

Here we have courses for actors and all other fields related to making movies.You should take one of those.But you ought to be prepared to give up your existing job as taking these lessons will occupy you full time.It will take time to start earning so you should have something to fall back on.I've met actors only to ask for their autograph and never met them personally.

If you want to be an actor, then go to auditions. There are loads of open casting calls posted online for independent films and student films. I'm a student filmmaker, and we often post our auditions on local film support sites in order to get talent for our production. Be willing to do stuff for free, because few students or indie filmmakers will be able to pay you... and no big studio is going to hire somebody without a reel. The above posters already recommended going to classes and workshops. You'll probably find bunches of those online too. Look for ones that boast successful graduates or good speakers/teachers, rather than just any old workshop or class nearby, because loads of people look to make a quick buck off your dreams but never plan on actually helping you get anywhere.

Develop your skills in an area where you are good at like singing, acting, modeling, etc. Join any workshop and involve in any school and community activities and contest. Nothing be more than developing your talent and who knows someday you will be discover. Good luck and God bless.

The posters above me gave great tips. To add, you can also ask some friends and you can create your own movie and upload it to YouTube! A lot of people are getting discovered in YouTube, and who knows, you might be one of them. But like anything, if you want to be good at something, you need to work hard and practice.
