Top 10 tips for wannabe child actors and their parents

By Eva Glettner |

My son is a child model and actor. I get asked ALL the time about the business, so I figured I would share what I’ve learned here. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind the questions, but there are just a few things that you should know from someone who is currently in the trenches. It’s a lot easier addressing all of you at once so I hope that you don’t mind the informality. First things first, it’s a tough business. But it helps when you have a little bit of an idea what you’re getting into. I would love to help you out, but understand that NOTHING about this is easy.


Fear not! I will help you through.

Top 10 tips for wannabe child actors and their parents

1. Your kid may be the cutest thing you've ever seen, but there are a heck of a lot of cute kids all over the world.

Yes, this was my first shock. When my son went on his first casting call, I was sure he would get the gig. Then we walked into a huge studio that was filled with the most unimaginably beautiful children all gathered in one spot, all vying for the same spot as my son. Be realistic.
