First up you would need a very reputable agent (cost approx $1,000) then need a portfolio and get quality pics of yourself put together professionally modelled-looking at around $1.000 just for that.
Also-you MUST be aware of people you are up against even if you got to the audition stage.
Not sure if Rhiannon Fish's profile and background are still on 'Cast', but prime example of being 'in the industry" just being in a couple of school plays usually won't cut it.
In Aus we've had acting schools started up about 10 yrs ago
Rhiannon has done theatre work, singing, dancing etc since she was about 10 years old.
Again-that's the type of competition you're up against.
Yes, there are the occasional exceptions (Tasha) who was 'discovered' in a supermarket.
Also Sarah, not sure what country you're from, but an Aussie accent is pretty much mandatory (occasional exception Kyle Pryor-playing Dr Nate)
And last, but not least, we have a lot of overseas people wanting to audition-just remember-there are thousands in Aus who have done a tertiary degree in visual arts already lined up in the queue
Might sound a bit brutal, but just saying it how it is......
