    I wouldn't recommend it.
    I agree that black and white images are special. They often seem more serene.

    Preparation is a lot of it.(head shots sag, monologues, etc) So is Networking,(agencies, auditions, getting in touch with a local community theatre etc) and location.(you tend to have to go where the work is) Be willing to stay flexible, (commercials, community theatre, working as an extra, student films etc) and above all, I'd say, Professionalism. (know your lines, be on time, a good rule of thumb I use is on time is fifteen minutes late.) And don't lose your optimism or passion. Some great advice has already been listed above. Break a leg. ^_^

    Not related to acting per se, but I took part in my first-ever runway show today.
    Over 40 years ago, we were passing through South Carolina - possibly on our way to Florida.
    For reasons unknown to this day, we were shot to death, execution style, on the side of a dirt road.
    We were a young couple, probably in our early to mid-20s, and may have been French Canadian.
    Our identities have never been established.
    So... Who were we?

    Thanks - and I really appreciated the link to the casting website you posted here. I was offered a spot as an extra through that website (low-budget SAG film) but ended up declining, simply due to the fact that it was too far away; the pay didn't justify the distance I would've had to travel.
