How To Spot A Casting Scam

Have you ever had a question like one of these?

These are just a few of the questions I’ve received from actors in the last few weeks. Some of them have come via social media, others as direct emails and others as comments on one of the articles here on the site. I love actor questions! And while I’ve been trying to answer everyone individually, realistically I just can’t. And hey… then only one person benefits. So I’ve decided to change things up a bit and provide new ways for you to get your questions answered. And it all starts right here!

Ask Your Questions Here

This is the new online portal for actor questions… and answers. Have a question for me about the biz or your career? Post it in the comments below. I will be answering some questions directly below and others via videos on social media and posting the links below. You can scroll through other Q&A’s or just jump in with what you need. Every question gets answered within 1-2 weeks and sometimes a lot faster if it’s a quick fix.

It may be in a blog post or IG video or a TikTok, but if you include your email in the comment section of this post you’ll be notified as soon as the answer is posted.

Realistically, this will probably become members only at some point, but for now, anyone can jump in!

One on One and Specific Questions

Need an answer ASAP? Or have something really specific to you? I’m working on a “mini-coaching” that I’ll be offering for $25 as an affordable, accessible way for you to get one-on-one support, no matter where you are in your acting journey. This will begin in the first week of June 2022 so be sure to check back here frequently or jump on the mailing list for more info.

TikTok + IG Live

Another couple of options that I’m playing with are doing lives on social once a week. I’d love to hear your thoughts below.

Thank you so much for being part of the My Actor Guide community, and I’m really looking forward to connecting with you more!

I want to be a working actress after high school for as long as I can, but my relatives (not my parents, my parents are supportive) are telling me I should just pursue something else and are constantly putting down my dreams. I don’t know what to believe anymore, and my worst fear is leaving show business, especially before I even start. However, I have a great plan for my future in this industry. How can I continue to believe in myself and stop doubting that I’ll randomly change my mind because of my relatives? There are tons of working actors who are in the business for decades so how can I be like them? That’s really all I’ve ever wanted.
Thank you
