This is not an industry that you can immediately break into. Sure we have all heard the stories of people that arrive in LA and become famous in 2 weeks. What we don't hear is that they have studied for years, have contacts and probably have really really good karma. In all seriousness this is a hard road to walk on. If your goal is to be famous you probably need to rethink your goals. If you love to perform and are constantly challenging yourself to play new roles -you may just have a good chance. JUST BEING GOOD LOOKING IS NOT ENOUGH! Maybe for print work-but there are a lot of really good looking people out there and a lot of them know people in the industry. You need to be savvy and meet some of these people. Make something happen for yourself-do shorts, do free theater. Make your own experiences to build up your resume. Patience is important too, don't bother your agents and manager asking them whats wrong or why your not getting out. Its a waste of time for people that are working hard for you.

Now I need to amend my last blog about my son. The missing auditions for important childhood milestones. I have a client missing an audition for the first day of school- he is 6 years old. This is an important day for him and I think that this is a valid reason to miss an audition. Kids have not chosen this path for themselves, they are discovering who they are and what they like. Being involved in all sorts of activities is a part of being a kid. Forcing an audition is never a good idea. adults out there have chosen this path, you know that you want to be an actor, adults should not miss auditions! Adults are waiting tables so that they can make auditions, doing odd jobs in hopes of making it in this industry. Don't miss opportunities. Even small jobs can turn into big jobs. Maybe you will meet a up and coming director that will remember you in the future, or a small casting company may grow and want to hire you later down the line.

Congrats to all of the L & L Talent peeps that worked this summer. Thanks for helping the agency grow with your talent!
