Question: What's the quickest way to become famous and get known?


Do something outrageous, ridiculous or something that no one has ever done.

If you are talking about acting, I think a Hollywood acting coach I interviewed for my website said it best. "The express elevator to Hollywood acting success is broken. From now on you'll have to take the stairs."

There are no short cuts. The people you hear about who are over night successes, are people who have been working at it often for years.

Also, fame is a consequence of a lot of hard work, determination, perseverance and yes...probably some luck too! What's more, it is reserved for a very small percentage of people; not because I say so, but because that's just the way it is. The statistics don't lie.

If you are interested in an acting career, BECAUSE YOU LOVE ACTING (I wouldn't recommend starting anything at this stage unless you can really commit to it for the love of doing it.) then have a look at this page on my site for new and aspiring actors. On it you will find 23 links to different pages that have to do with various aspects of starting an acting career including thoughts on becoming famous, steps on how to get started, 23 reasons why you should take acting classes to get started, 17 things you can do to start getting acting work and 29 ways to promote yourself.

Good luck!
