    Firstly,if you are coming straight from secondary school don't be put off by rejection first time round. RADA believe in 'life experience' so are not huge fans of 18 year old - though there are exceptions. I would definitely still audition at 18 as it allows you to prepare for the next year.

    One student I know went to audition at 18 and was given a list of things to do and come back in 5 years. The list included things like travel Europe, get an office job and loose 3 pounds. He did all of these things, came back after 5 years and got a place.

    Yep, it's pretty bad. I feel that actors suppose to be fat and play stereotypical roles or very thin and fit. Being a normal sized human doesn't go down well in the industry sometimes
