New actress asking for advice:
“Hello! I am a 13 year old girl with a strong interest in acting. The only problem is; I've only ever done a play in 4th grade, but I was the lead. I'm in my school's drama club, but my school/ town is so small, we can't afford to put on a real show.

“Any advice? Anything ranging from how to get roles, how auditions are like/ how to find them, to acting tips and whatnot. I am brand new to the acting world, and could really use some advice. Anything helps! Thank you!” —nur-aksamija

Starting fresh:
“Hello everyone, my name is Ashton kirkland. I am 22 years old and interested in getting started acting, modeling, and doing stunt work. I have no representation and really need some advice on how to get started such as, format of resume, how to get into contact with agents, etc and anything else i might need to know just starting out. Thanks in advance.” —Karatekid22
