So I was contacted recently by a local modeling and talent agency that I applied to. I did my research and they are legitimate. They are even listed on the screen actors guild website so I am keeping my fingers crossed. Hopefully this will work out wish me luck. As for any one interested in acting I think the best idea is to try becoming an extra which you can do by signing with a legitimate acting agency.
P.S I am still working on the modeling thing but i'm only 5'6 so I might just concentrate on acting, we'll see.
