The youth market is exploding in Hollywood, and there has never been a better time for young people to break into the business. Kids, teens, and anyone who can play young have greater opportunities to find success and celebrity than ever before, and Acting in Young Hollywood is the essential guide any young actor needs to find his or her footing on the oftentimes rocky path to fame. Covering everything from the most basic tools (headshots, reels) to a breakdown of the integral team players (agents, managers) to actually getting out there and acting (auditions and booking), this is the go-to book for anyone hoping to launch—and maintain—a lifelong career. Frederick Levy is a friend to and advocate for young performers, which is why Acting in Young Hollywood is filled with inspiring anecdotes, sympathetic advice, and much-needed encouragement for the future stars of stage and screen.
