    Lets tell ourselves the truth here. We all see famous actors and actresses on TV, in Movie and on stage and we all want to be like them.  We have fans of Odunlade Adekola, Muyiwa Ademola, Funke Akindele and many more. Well, it’s not easy (or cheap) but it pays for itself in the end! Here are some steps. Enroll in acting classes. Acting classes will help you discover your strengths as an actress.

    Some actresses excel at drama, while others are natural comedians. You might discover that performing Shakespeare is your calling, or that musical theater is for you. In any case, acting classes teach you to develop and inhabit your character, work with other actors and take direction.

    Get a good film acting coach!
    Even though you may be a born actor, you need a good acting coach.  These celebrity schools can really help. They are not paying me to advertise them, but i think its one of the best way. You’ll want to have a big or small resume before you get an agent. Ask your acting coach if they can tell you about upcoming plays and skits.
    Promote Yourself
    Now is the time to get a headshot. Make sure you get a picture taken by a professional headshot photographer. Remember, this is your calling card! Headshots are expensive but you get what you pay for. Once you find a photographer and have your photos taken, you’ll need to get them printed. This is also expensive but absolutely necessary.
    Video your acting (at home or in real performances) and start to build up enough material to edit together a Show Reel (also called Demo Reel).
    This is your ‘calling card’ as an actor. Put your Show Reel online (on YouTube or your own acting website) so that you can send Casting Directors, Managers, Producers or Agents a simple email link to assess your talent.
    Look for Community Plays
    Though you will not get good exposure to casting directors and such, this is a good introduction to the acting industry. You will learn everything from the acting lexicon to rehearsal etiquette. True, you never know who you will meet during rehearsals or in a show or even from your acting coach, but this is just to get started. Get a friend to video every performance, for your Show Reel.
    Explore Acting Techniques
    There are numerous approaches to acting, each of which offer insight and training into accessing and portraying emotion.
