How do I become a working actor?

Eat healthy, stay fit, expand your skill base (dancing, martial arts, etc.), keep your showreel updated, attend acting workshops. Be professional, arrive on time, be neat. Always have flesh coloured underwear. Guys, generally white underwear (have a black pair on hand). Attend your castings and auditions. If you don’t go, you don’t book the job. There are always direct bookings, where a client will request your (z-card), or Showreel. In the actors case, they will ask for a headshot and resume. Actors generally don't have z-cards.
