Many people underestimate the importance of experience. It seems
the common thought is that we will be discovered in a resturaunt
one day, and placed in a major motion picture with the likes of
Brad Pitt the next day. Many famous celebrities were at one point
struggeling actors, often times taking several months to land their
first audition. But they continued to gain experience by going to
every audition they could in New York and anywhere else. Not
only does experience help dictate your work ethic to a casting director,
but you also put yourself in a position to be noticed by more industry
executives. Go to auditions as often as possible. Many can be found
in New York.

Casting directors often get a black and white headshot and a resume.
But what does the rest of your body look like? What color are your
eyes or your hair? This is vital information for a casting director
in New York to have, and many actors often times forget to
include it. Height, weight, eye color, hair color, measurements,
etc. These are commonly the first things a casting director in New York looks for when searching for talent.

When a casting director looks at your portfolio, they may like your
look, but will you fit the part? Your hobbies and skills not only
tell them what you like to do, but it illustrates the kind of person
you are. Some people like to read, some people are into extreme
sports. You might be a New York native, you might have an accent.
Two actors with similar looks may not both fit the role or the character
needed. The activities actors enjoy in real life are often times
portrayed on the screen. It is important to be sure your personality
comes out here.

Even some of the best actors that are born with outstanding talent
have to study and practice for every role. Some actors won't get
the part because they lack the training and experience. Most professional
actors hire training coaches (which you can find in New York)
every time they are working on a major production. Such professional
training may cost a substantial amount of money; however, it will
play an important part in actor's life. At first you should consider
taking some basic training at a local New York acting school
or New York college. For more inexpensive, training try a well
recommended New York acting workshop with good credentials.
