How to Start an Acting Career in Hollywood

QUESTION:

I’m a 21 year old guy who lives in India. I want to start an acting career abroad . Is it necessary to have acting experience in India and then move abroad or i can directly move to Hollywood and take acting classes somewhere near? Are there any chances for me to get into it?

ANSWER:

Finding work in Hollywood is very competitive. If it is easier in India to get cast, getting some experience there first will be helpful, especially if you get film experience you can put on your acting reel (note: if it’s not in English, get the scenes subtitled).

If you decide to come to Hollywood, you will have to choose an acting school that qualifies you for a student visa. Some schools also offer a one year training visa to get some experience in the States before going back to India. You can start your search for acting schools here.
