    If you want to act first you need an agent, and you need experience. Although you generally don't need drama school as once can learn to act without. But experience is a must as you just can't waltz into an audition without having done no acting prior its kinda like turning up to the olympics and wanting to do the 10,000m run without having done any training whatsoever. See if you have any local theatres you can get a minor part in, like a play or something, or try seeing if you can land a role as an extra to see how film works. From there you can work your way into adverts or commercials then, into film.
