All I want to do is act. I want to move to LA and tackle auditions and pursue my dream as long and as hard as I can. My mom is totally willing to move us there, but we can't ask our family for help because we have zero income and they will think it is ludacris. We're planning on selling everything we don't need and paying off the house, but I'm terrified that it's not going to work and I'll be stuck in this town forever. Any advice?
My advice would be to make sure Hollywood is where you want to go. Have you used up all of your local resources before deciding to risk it all? Maybe do some theater to build up a resume or some more skill if you haven’t already. One of my favorite actors Denzel Washington has said “Do theatre first, don’t run to hollywood!”
