I don't, but I do know that these drama schools are very difficult to get into. Do drama at A-Level and get experience in drama and other subjects.

I'm told that its rather hard to get in without the proper prior experience. You would do well to look this up.

do you? That wouldn't make any sense, as actors come in all ages--well, since they're acting, anyone should be able to, as long as you're good

I'm not sure if this is of any help: http://www.nayt.org.uk/

I don't know how good you are, but you must have A LOT of talent, not that I want to put you down but if you do have talent and have determination then go for it.

If you haven't had much Drama experience then you can do AVCE in Performing Arts or Drama at A-Level as well as other A-Levels which will help you if you change your mind or if it's too difficult to get into.

i have no idea what drama school i want to go to?to be honest the thought about going to one has only just recently crossed my mind, apart from when i was young and dreamed of going. I just like the acting part of it, but i used to dance as well. I used to go to competions all aroung the uk!But ahve stopped that now, its just the acting that i want to take up.

And remember you can go to Drama School but the majority only end up in theartes if that. Most don't even get a chance to go on TV despite them being very talented.

bloody hell. I was thinking more of £3500 not £10,000 but i suppose its not too bad,considering that the teachers would probably be alot more experienced.

i dont think its the fame i like about acting. I think its the chance to act out someone completely different and be able to be someone else for a while.

whereas with dance collages there r many west end auditions. but uve got to be gud at everything acting,dancing, singing to be selected to those. If ur gud at dancing n acting (which it sounds like it) then reserach performing arts colleages.. they do all three areas.

But remember you'd be going there to make a career out of acting and if you want to make enough money to survive then you'd have to become famous to an extent otherwise no one would know you and want to employ you.

Actresses often go for weeks with no money until something comes along, which isn't that well paid.

But if you are serious, I really suggest that you do drama at A-Level and then maybe go to Uni to study Drama, that way you could having teaching as a backup if acting work doesn't come your way
