Dare to Dream, Dare to Act: How to Become Actor in Canada? 

If you plan to become an actor in Canada, the question of how to become an actor in Canada must have been lingering on your mind many times. You might have seen great Canadian actors and actresses, such as Ryan Gosling or Pamela Anderson. To achieve that dream, here is what you can do.

1. Ask yourself why

Far before taking an acting class or having your hand touched the script, ask yourself why you have to become an actor. Is it for fame and fortune? Those can be realistic reasons, but if you only want those things, it will be difficult for you to have an actor/actress as your way to make a living. Well, being an actor requires so much more than that. 

2. Acting classes will help you

Not everyone is born to be a performer. Moreover, if you have no experience being in front of the camera, taking acting classes will help much.

3. Practice makes perfect

Being a movie star without proper acting practice is just nothing. Hence, aside from taking classes, it’s important to apply what you have learned into practice.

4. Take an Audition

Once you feel you are good enough to act in front of the camera, it’s the right time to apply for an audition. Make sure to prepare yourself for it, and even though you fail at your first trial, don’t give up. Audition is also where you can learn about casting.

5. Location is important

Besides for Canada-based aspiring actors, the location where you look for gigs is also important. Most Canadian film production companies are based in Vancouver, or somewhere near the capital. If possible, it’s best to move there to get a better chance of getting a gig.
