What tips can you provide to someone who wants to get into acting?

I have a desire to start acting in some local plays and commercials but do not know where to start.

The best way to start is to just get yourself out there. If there is an audition for plays and or commercials, then go. Show them what you can do. If you get rejected, begin taking acting classes so you can improve.

Why not join a local drama group, then ask the other members how you would go about finding an agent to represent you?

Give yourself a motive, this will help you reach your goal and play your character better. Also go to lots of auditions to get the oppurtunity.

Be sure you can take rejection. There are many more actors than there are parts, and you may have to audition hundreds of times before you get your first part.

Get photos done for your portfolio and then submit it with your resume to a local agent in your area. Also it would be a good idea to maybe take some acting or music lessons. Find a local teacher, and maybe they can set you up with an agent.
