So you would like to be an actor?

The first step is to figure out why you want to be one. Ask yourself, "Why do I want to be an actor?"

If you want to be rich and famous, that can be a long and difficult road that requires a lot of luck.

But if you want to be an actor because it is fun or it brings you joy or you like entertaining others, then this could be the right choice for you.


free help for actors online acting school class course certificate


Decide why you want to act, figure out why it is important to you and what kind of actor you want to be.

STEP ONE: KEEP A JOURNAL (POST IN THE COMMENTS BELOW)

To get a certificate of completion for this class (and a Freedrama shirt) you must complete all 10 class discussions and create 2 videos of your acting.  (If you're unable to do a video, then there is an audio option).

Day 1 question: "Why do you want to be an actor?" 
(post your answer in the blog comments below)




You must post your answer to the question above in the blog comments and then respond to another actor's post in this course.  Give words of encouragement. Share your experiences. Or discuss acting. Your interactions MUST be positive or you will be disqualified from taking the class and will NOT be considered as a featured monologue performer on Freedrama.net - see our featured actors on the Freedrama YouTube page. You will hear from your instructor (Emmy Award winner Doug Larson) when you complete your two video monologues at the end of this course (see later lessons).

FINAL EXAM (explained in later lessons in the course): 

You will also need to complete two recordings of yourself acting (audio or video) and make changes to each after getting suggestions from your instructor. You want these to be contrasting monologues - one drama and one comedy - in order to show your range.  This will be discussed more later in the class.

After you post your journal below, 

GO TO LESSON 2 of the acting school.

Or go to a list of all lessons for the Free Acting School

Be nice! Don't act like a pirate in these discussions.

ACTING TIP FROM MERYL STREEP: "Acting is not about being someone different. It's finding the similarity in what is apparently different, then finding myself in there."

    1. thats good that you want to make an impact in peoples lives and be famous. I would say as a word of caution, dont be ashamed of where you come from in life, because who you become along the way can make huge impressions on people and where they are. and know that you can be famous in two ways, positively and negatively as we see in the media today. hope you have a stellar career.

    3. What you said about watching TV n wanting to be there its something that I also feel. And its a feeling like no other, when you want to be part of something like this but sometimes feel like you wont make it you have to turn those negative thought into positive ones and say whatever is causing you to think that way well that's just another challenge or obstacle to pass. You just have to keep going and believing because when you truly love something and want something the whole world could be against you but as long as you keep going nothing will stop you. NOTHING. I hope you become an actress. Best of wishes.

  8. I want to be an actor/director because for as long as I can remember I have loved the prospect of entertaining others. I find it extremely fun and every time I make a film or act in one I get a rush and I am reassured that acting and film-making is something I want to pursue. The prospect of fame and fortune is also not a bad potential outcome for doing something you love.

    2. My reasons for wanting to become an actor/actress are quite similar to yours. It has been a lifelong ambition since I was very young and drama helped me come out of my shell and I actually think that life is like a stage set with many scenes and we have to act our way through it! I agree with you, that by becoming a different character other than being yourself it seems easy to act a certain way

  28. Iv'e not always wanted to be an actress. But when I grew up and was cast a main role in one of my school plays I saw my future. I enjoy every minute of watching my favourite movies and TV shows. I want to be an actress because I'd love to entertain people and myself too. And be able to understand different characters and personalities. I'm going to be very honest, the fame does sound good but you have to work for it and be passionate or you won't be able to achieve it.

    I hope all you good people out there trying to be future actresses may you succeed and LOVE what you do.

  29. I would love to become an actress not for the fame nor the money, I would do it for free for all it matters. I want to become an actress because I want to be part of those people that changes other people's life, make them laugh, make them feel better when they are feeling sad. Also, I want to be part of the family, I've watched some of the behind scene videos and I love how they help one another learn the part or just being there for each other. I've wanted to become an actress ever since I was 9 but this is when I actually went out and searched for how I can begin and here I am. Hoping for the best.

  30. I've always had a special feeling for acting. I've tried several times to avoid it but no matter what, it keeps coming back and then I figured, I should try it. When I did, there was a rush of excitement and fulfillment inside me. There's definitely no way I'm going to stop. I want to be an actress because it defines me. It's part of me and the feeling I get from doing it is more than the love for the money that comes with it. Acting to me is my life. Playing a role, making myself another character, giving people a chance to see another person entirely different from the real me is just satisfactory and exactly what I want to do. This is a huge step towards my acting dream and I hope this helps me a lot

  31. Becoming an actor is an art that I've been too afraid to participate in until recently. I've begun a journey of self-discovery and living the life that I always wanted. When I was younger I was always entertaining family, friends, strangers and now that I've dropped (most of) my ego I'm clear that there is more for me to express! Challenging myself through the art of acting has been a dream that I now realize I had control of seizing this entire time, haha! I'm very grateful and excited to participate in these lessons and grow with you all :)

  32. Becoming an actress allows me to fall into my imagination that know one around can understand, it allows me to express myself, as serious character, funny character, and/or whatever else. The act of becoming and falling into another world excites me. I also get to run away from the reality of the world around, to be unordinary, to portray to others how someone can be. Then sitting back and seeing, that I can do that is that much more better. Its an escape, a joy, and excitement all in one. Everything else is icing on the cake.

  33. I an actress because I was never truly just mine. I feel that I can inspire, motivate, enchant, entertain, move and touch people through film and theater. My father was an actor, my grandfather an Orchetra Conductor, my grandmother an aspiring actress who didn't have the opportunity to actually set foot on a stage. My young daughter is an aspiring actress and so is my little niece. I want to show them that they can also do what they love, I want to teach them what I know and I want to encourage anyone who feels the same to start acting today. Many of us are held back because we don't feel pretty enough or talented enough or fit enough or young enough. I want to help people get over that hurdle and get them on stage or on film. The more people we have inspiring others, the more audience we reach. I am actress because if I'm not acting I feel bored and empty. Does that make sense? I feel like a grounded plane just itching to fly again.

  36. I've always wanted to be an actor as a child, I would see people in TV Shows and movies and think I want to do that too because actors entertain people and I wanted to entertain people too, but the only problem was I was a very shy kid who couldn't really do that, so I put it off until now(13). I realize if I stay shy for the rest of my life I won't ever really be able to do anything. I mean I still am a bit shy but why not break out of that shell now, and that is why I want to become an actor now

  37. I want to be an actress because it's basically fun and entertaining much more so than getting paid to do so. I find joy out of acting sense I was a child from watching my favorite movies throughout my childhood to my present years as I'm now 28 years old. I believe that anybody including myself can act when you have the right motivation and confidence despite the fact that if I still need to take acting classes to become a professional actress, so be it. But I know that I can do it when I have family and friends who supported my life long dream that I hope to make it come true as my ultimate career because I live for movies, shows, and theater. That's all I ever wanted because to me its not about the money, it's about giving fans entertainment and inspiration.

    The thrill of portraying a character and speaking as well as expressing it excites me. I want that my life doesn't get spent in a cubicle. I love appreciation for my work as well as criticism. My acting on stage is going to provide me both. I want to be more expressive before I start it on a stage. I want to learn how to act and how not to overdo things . I am an engineering graduate and am quite good at it but if I pursue this , it will give me one life of an engineer but acting will allow me to have many roles and lives. Luck may join my labour one day I will reach pinnacle of success. Sir please help me out.

  49. I want to act because of the feelings you get yourself and the feelings you can make others feel. Moving someone through a performance is one of the best feelings in the world. Knowing that you made a person happier or more understanding through a show is so satisfying. The art of acting is so underappreciated by the public as they think literally everyone in the profession is driven by fame and money, when in reality, most actors already work a day job when their true passion is acting. I want to act to prove that there are actors that truly just love acting. I want to be an actor because every time I step onto stage or set, the thrill is amazing. Simply becoming a character that you are not is a much-needed break from the world. I want to be an actor because I love it. I have loved it for years, love it now, and will love it for my whole life. Nothing will ever change that.

  53. I am a writer, and I'd like to act to feel my inner characters more. Also if I wrote a script it would be a great help as I act it out. I used to act as a child, but as I got older I never rediscovered it. I am shy too, and would like to overcome that, and believe acting can help. I also used to be able to do some fake faints. But I'm now disabled with a crutch, though there are disabled actors and I believe they need some more.

  71. I personally think I'm born for it. I want to inspire humanity, I want people to think about their lives and help them to change the way they live. Other reasons why I wanna make it big are to prove that my parents are wrong and to make them proud. (they said I won't make it big simply because english isn't my first language, but I speak it very well.) and someday when I make it big I wanna move to California. Most importantly, i can feel it's in me, I feel happy when I act.

  74. I want to be an actor because it is something I enjoy and am pretty good at. I've tried many different activities that I've never really felt was something I liked and was good at. When I see actors in plays, movies and musicals, they give you that inspiration and make you ask "What did they do to get where they are now?, What drove them to achieve their accomplishments. They all have perserverence and hard work behind them. I Have that desire to make people feel happiness and inspiration to do the things they love. I Love to make other people feel inspired and happy and help them perservere to do what they want with their life.

  78. I want to be an actress because I want to make people feel. To me, a good actor is one who makes the audience feels what he/she's been through via her expressions and motions.

    1. That's a good example. Have you watched Les Miserables? The movie/musical with Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway?

  79. For over 4 years on the 23rd of March, I've been into the roleplaying community as well as trying to make a different accent each time to get my dad going (he only does that because he thinks he's better). To me, becoming an actress would be, first of all, a way to get out of my everyday issues and be able to try and make people feel what I'm feeling when I go to act out a role. This would be something different for me as well as making me better at what I can do.

  80. I believe that I was born to perform!! I had quite a difficult childhood and I used to read a lot of books to escape the harshness of everyday life. I was a very quiet child growing up and suffered with low confidence and self esteem. However through drama, I found myself coming out of my shell and also found myself. As soon as I was on stage, I knew that was what I wanted to do. I discovered that I could act on stage easily because I was in character, performing a particular role instead of just being myself. Even now, when I am doing a presentation as myself, in my own words, I struggle to get the words out and suffer from bad nerves sometimes to the extent that my knees are knocking together! However, when I am performing in character, I have no problem at all.
    I feel that everyday life is like a stage set and we are actors performing our way through it. Sometimes we set the scene and know how to act but other times the scene is set for us and we have to act on the spot with no rehearsals etc!
    I want to be an actress because I feel that I am one already. I just need my big break to become a big star!

  83. I remember when I was young I used to think about what do I want to be when I grow up and every day I would come up with something else, one day it would be fireman, next day it would be policeman, doctor, scientist and eventually I would decide to become an actor because then I would be able to be everything in the world and this stayed with me, but only as a childish dream. Until one day a man, who, what I believe, is drama critic, said to me: "You have sense for work in space" and what I understood is: "You have potential to become an actor", later I find out that acting can boost your self-esteem, confidence, etc. - which I lack - so I decided to give it a try, at the age of 20. Actors who's work I admire the most are: Christian Bale, Daniel Day-Lewis, Heath Ledger, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kevin Spacey, Dustin Hoffman and more. I'm not saying that I want to be like them, in fact I'm working on some "technique" of preparation for the role, which is inspired by Heath Ledger's role of Joker, when he would keep journal for his character development, so I want to be myself, but their work is definitely inspiring... Dustin Hoffman said something about hiding yourself behind your character, working on your character until you can't recognize yourself, until you merge with your character, which is also both helpful and inspiring for me. I can't say that I want to be method actor or Stanislavsky method actor or some other type of actor, I would rather use things from all kinds of acting methods and combining them into one "new" acting method - I would like to be my own type of actor and the best version of myself.

    Okay so my answer to that is, that films and series are my life. Seriously they are like a hobby for me. I love being pulled in, in another's life, and learn how the person sees things. I love when a character becomes so real for you, that it gives you emotions. Like when the character smile, you smile, and the other way around. I love, when you need to watch the next episode, cause the storyline is so good you can’t wait.
    So I always wanted to do something like that. Give people the same feeling that I love.
    I also really like, to forget my life for a moment, and just be another person.

    Sorry if I’m rly bad at english, but I’m trying my best… :)

  114. To be or not to be? This is a question. Especially when it comes to deciding whether or not you have to even try to be an actor. I come from a developing country, called Ukraine. Though it is in Europe, we do not, unfortunately, pay enough attention to artistic people, and the film industry is very poor here. So it's no wonder why many people around me do not believe that it's possible to make good living out of being and actor. And that's why I've been doubting so much too. But then I realized, that the most important thing in choosing this career is not to make a good living out of being famous, but to actually loving what you do, even if you never become a star. I want to be an actor because I can't imagine myself doing anything else, even if I get paid a lot. I love the challenges, I love the extraordinary, and I'm surely ready to work for my dream.
