Disney or Nickelodeon are always looking for acting teens
If you have ever watched television shows on Disney or Nickelodeon you realize that acting teens have roles on television shows like “Malcom in the Middle,” “ICarley,” and “Hannah Montana.” Most acting teens started their careers in the entertainment industry when they were just kids by doing television commercials or acting in movies.
One of the most famous acting teens is Miley Cyrus who started her career on “Hannah Montana” and is now a successful pop singer and an icon among acting teens.
To be successful acting, teens must realize the time commitment it takes to go to auditions and act in plays while still going to school. It is not an easy life. There are several cases of child actors or acting teens who had success early in their careers, but were washed up by the time they were 25.
If you want to become part of the acting teens community, the first thing you should do is develop a professional portfolio which should include a headshot, several body shots and a DVD of your acting ability.
After you have a professional portfolio, the next step is to find auditions for acting teens. Casting directors and producers list thousands of auditions for actors, models, singers and musicians every day. These auditions could be for be for Disney Shows, Nickelodeon shows, movies or television commercials.
Acting is just one way for teens to break into the entertainment industry. There are also jobs available for models, singers, dancers and crew members.
Parents who are looking to get their teens into acting should be supportive but not overbearing. It is also a parent’s job to make sure you are dealing with legitimate talent agents and talent agencies when it comes to representing acting teens.
