I am 14 and i really want to be an actress. I have been in pantomimes at school when i was tutored how to act and write a script. I have been in many school acts and performances and i have always dreamed of being an actress ever since i was four. I would do anything and evrything it takes to be an actress. But I cant find a drama school near me and the only ones are hours away.

The usual way is to get a degree in Eng lit and/or theatre studies and go from there. What GCSEs are you taking? You have included drama and lit in there, yes? Next would be to follow those through at A level at least, but to get as much experience as you can and bear in mind that your goals may also change as you're still pretty young, so take other subjects too just in case you're stuck for work for a while or go off the idea. I know you think it's impossible, but it just might happen!!

All the best,

Try to join the National Youth Music Theatre or the National Youth Theatre. They hold talent spotting auditions around the country in January and February and stage major performances in the Summer. I've just seen a fantastic show at the Theatre Royal in Newcastle called Such Sweet Thunder. NYMT have a website giving details. Lots of big names started in the NYMT
