  1. I am 40 years young and acting is a new career for me. Last fall I tripped into a small role on a regular television program and ever since, I have been hooked. I have played 7 small roles since then for the same production company. Each role has been a new experience and beyond fun but my 3rd role was the role that made me to realize that I really do have a genuine passion for acting. In my 3rd role I played a true person, like reenacted a murder victim’s sister. Although my role was a very small part, I took the entire script and read it from front to back. I then researched the story. I even ended up finding some of these real people on social media and could see what kind of person(s) they are. I found myself wanting to become this person, I wanted to walk in her shoes, wear her clothes and do my best to understand how she must have felt the day she found out her brother was murdered. I wanted to know what her family is like, what kind life does she live. Anything that I felt I could use as a tool to understand her and then I took any similarities that I could relate to, and turned her story into my story. I wanted to be sure her story was reenacted just as if she did it herself, I wanted it to be true and genuine. So, lesson one is to figure out why do I want to act? From what I have just wrote, it appears I have many positive reasons, but for sure money nor fame is important to me. I have also come to realize that being 40 is working in my favor. My foundation has already been built, I am not acting to chase a dream or to build a solid career from it, which I feel makes it more doable! It is all completely from my soul, and that my friends makes me very happy! I learn something from each role and I have a ton of learning to do. Thank you for listening!

    1. Wow! Your story is truly inspiring! I hope you seek more roles where you can research how each character is. Thank for sharing 😃 I wish you the best of luck.

  2. Hello, am honored seeing such platform, am 23, single and am from Africa but lived in Maryland for 6 months now. All my life, I have always have passion for acting reason I cannot say particularly but to be frank when am acting am feeling self-satisfied and fulfilled... truly speaking am always acting but funny enough not on scene or stage but when am lonely or sometimes unconsciously as I just hat talking to myself playing different roles. Acting is something I can go for with or without fame, the joy in my heart is all that count. Though am scared because I still got African accent and people say it sucks(funny). I love my voice and accent, nevertheless, I so need this class to improve in all acting domain.

  3. First, i want to appreciate the officials of this great platform of impacting to up and coming actors. I am 22 years old and am a Nigerian upcoming actress with so much passion on the inside of me. I love acting so much that it has affected me in all my ways. I set my camera to act at home, in school and on streets alone. I do cry everyday because something seems to be burning on the inside of me. I wish to exploy.....Ada Okafor

  4. I want to be an actor because, I've seen a lot of kids my age acting. I don't want to be all famous for the money. It probably would, take a lot of time to be a professional actor. I'm only 13 in the 7th grade. I've lived in Memphis, TN almost my whole life, and I recently at the beginning of the year moved to Kansas where,"The Wizard of Oz", was filmed. I want to act because in school we did a career test and I got all the onstage and camera stuff. But acting was the first thing I got from my personality test.
