Description
Each year, hundreds of aspiring and experienced actors head to LA hoping to make it big in Hollywood. While many of them have their acting chops in shape, few realize what it actually takes to survive in Tinseltown. Even if they happen to make it onto a set, many are clueless about what&;s expected of them and how they should behave.

Written by veteran Hollywood actor, acting coach, and acting teacher Kristina Sexton, this comprehensive guide takes no prisoners.

  • How to find your &;image&; and market it
  • The SAG/AFTRA debate
  • Networking
  • Agents and managers
  • The importance of creating your own opportunities
  • Maintaining a life outside of acting
  • Setiquette
  • On-set terminology
  • And much more
