Get Child Into Acting
Show business offers plenty of work for child actors for the simple reason that the current batch of talented and experienced
child actors will eventually grow up and become adults. As a result, film, television, and theater need to find new faces all the time, and
child actors are always in demand.
Show business uses all types of child actors, ranging in ages from newborn babies to teenagers who still aren't old enough to buy
alcohol legally. So whatever age your child may be, he or she can always start an acting career at any time.
If your child happens
to look younger than he or she really is, you can use that baby face to your advantage. Show business worships youth, not just for the physical
attractiveness but because an older child actor who can pass himself off as younger child should be easier to manage on the set. Getting a
3-year-old to cooperate may be difficult, but getting a 5-year-old who looks like a 3-year-old is (hopefully) much easier on the director and the
rest of the cast.
If you think that your child has what it takes to make it big as a child actor, this section gives you the tips that you need to
help make his or her acting dreams come true. For starters, you need to ask yourself and your child whether you're willing to sacrifice time and
money to help your kid become an actor. This section then describes the array of acting gigs your kid can try out for. Finally, you'll discover
the laws and regulations you need to be aware of when your child gets called for an audition or arrives on the set of filming.
