Ask Me: Resume with no experience?

It’s not impossible to get signed by an agent without experience but the circumstances have to be so specific: you’re very young, you’re very connected, you’re very wealthy with an incredible piece of intellectual property (a movie, series, script, etc), and on.

If you’re looking to build your resume I’d sign up for Actors Access and start putting yourself out there for the job listings you are appropriate for. You’ll do a lot of non-union theater and student films, but these all count as credits on your resume and are all great ways to gain experience. 

As I always tell everyone who asks me about training, if you are serious about being an actor you have to get serious about your training. Get into a good school/class asap. And I’m not talking about industry networking classes or improv. I’m talking about working with heavy-hitting trainers at prestigious schools.
