The launch!!! And here we... Go! The most common question I get asked is "How long will I have to study?" The answer: That really depends on you. Where you are in your life, career and how much you are willing to work. On average though and most of us actors do not like being average, I would say about 3-6 months before you really get the hang of it.. Perhaps one year before you are ready to audition. Again, really depends on you and what your level is.
Like, how well you listen, take direction, and how much you understand.
Once you begin to know the basics of breaking down a scene, or any form of dialogue, you can then begin to grasp the concept of acting and put it into ACTION.
