Re: I need advice on my future!

If you go into 6th form next year, you can probably take a drama course (check the options list first though), we have one in our school. Have you thought of maybe joining a local club or something like that who might give you more help?

Re: I need advice on my future!

I think it would help but might not be totally necessary in your school (you might be able to do it without if you explain)
Hope that helps a bit

Its always hard getting the info you need - but maybe you have a local theatre or even a careers advce place you can get to -- ok acting is not gonna be high up on thier list of careers but you never know. Also I sometimes see a newspaper called I think the stage -- maybe have a look in your local libary -- might be some acting stage or theatre magazines --

sorry cannot think of anything else

Re: I need advice on my future!

Taking GCSE Drama isn't a necessity. Acting is a passionate field and a GCSE is an indicator of knowledge, not passion. What you can do to show that you want this is immerse yourself in the theatrical community as much as possible. Are you in Stage Coach? If not, that (or a similar club) will help you a lot. Go for roles in school plays, and even get involved in theatres outside of school. Get work experience at a theatre. Basically, show the world that you don't NEED a GCSE to show that you can do it.

One thing I will say (and I really mean this in the kindest way possible) is that the fact you felt the need to say you want to be a "Famous Actor" demonstrates that (maybe to a very small extent) you are in it partly for the fame. I'm not saying that you don't have the capability, but the best actors aren't necessarily famous, and the most famous actors aren't always the best. Sometimes these things happen, but sometimes they don't. You do not have to be famous to succeed.

Best of luck!
