If I don’t fit the part exactly, can I still submit?

The problem with submitting when the part isn’t exactly right for you as described is that they won’t call you in when there is the right part for you. You don’t want to appear like you don’t know where you fit. Know how the industry sees you – know who is working in the industry that is your type. Get educated with all that is Television and Film.


I’m planning to move to LA some time this year and I was wondering what I need to do beforehand? I’m from Alberta, Canada.

A lot of money! I would say, at least 3 years worth. The first year is development – getting your package, training and team together. The second year is building your resume. The third year is making sure your time is devoted to booking big jobs. Get on my business site for actors and learn the technique and make sure your package matches your talent by doing all the assignments and listening to all the podcasts
