To become an actress for Disney channel, there are a number of things to take note of.
Firstly you need to become familiar with the types of actresses who are on your favourite Disney shows. A good way to do this is by looking at websites as well as watching the shows. You also need to make sure you have a talent which a show can use, there are hundreds of thousands of people who can sing and dance, so you need to make sure you have got something special which makes you stand out from the others.
Ideally you need to be within commuting distance of New York City and Hollywood as these are where the studios are based. You must be willing to relocate once you get the job as it is more than likely you will be required to do so.
Making sure you can keep up with your schoolwork is another important factor as it is imperative that you maintain good grades as well as work.
Many colleges offer acting classes which are suitable for all ages, it is a good idea to attend these as this will give you more advantage of becoming a Disney actress.
Singing classes are also important even if you can sing already as most Disney actresses have gone on to make a fortune in the music industry.
It makes sense to attend every audition possible. Some lucky girls get through on their first audition, but others can have a lot more auditions before they land a role.
Practice and patience are two vital things to learn when wanting to become a budding Disney actress. You will spend a lot of time waiting round for auditions, and it is important to practice whilst in this waiting period.
Recognise that family time and school work are also important to you as well as, of course, being a Disney actress!
If you are up for the task and you really do want to become an actress for the Disney channel, then who knows, you could be the next Alex Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place!
Hi its Miley Cyrus! Lol it took a while to become an actress on Disney! I also had a bit of help since my dad was a famous singer. Just keep looking on the web and in books or newspapers and contact as many people as you can.. Phone calls, emails. Or written letters! If you have talent anyone will take you!! Good luck!!!!! :) Luv Miley Cyrus!
Well Disney channel take auditions every year for junior actors and actress so you can participate in those auditions when it will be advertised in newspaper so that you can get chance to work at Disney and become actress.
Its wonderful to have dreams, to one day dream of bieng what you want to be then accomplishing it. But to be an actress is a tough goal. Many people want this,like they say you have to be one in a million. Someone might be luckier than you, have better connections or is more talented.You can't just want this because you want be the next hannah or selena, you can't want it because you want to get fame, money, attention. You have to LOVE it. Because when you become an actress or actor everything will be different. Getting your schoolwork done will be tough, waking up early for shooting, sleeping late, memorizing lines, uncomfortable situations. NO ONE can really say "oh my god I WANT TO BE AN ACTRESS ILL GIVE EVERYTHING UP TO BE ONE" Once you are one its not easy. Some dreamers don't even make it to their dream. Now, I'm lucky to me a mestizo living in Philippines. Its not easy to exactly be an actress here but once you have a pretty face you have a BIGG chance to make it. Plus, my uncle has a connection to a famous manager to a superstar here. He manages many stars and stars come to his friends house a lot. So to those who arent so lucky as me GOODLUCK even if I have good connections I still have to take singing, dancing, and acting classes. LOVE YALL If you really want it you can make IT -dreamer
Well a lot of people have told me that you need an agent. Trust me I really need that too. But I don't know what destiny holds 4 me! I WANT 2 BE ON DISNEY CHANNEL! They say that if you don't have an agent you can't or it's really hard 2 do and get disney channel auditions and they say that if you send in an head shot and resume but you don't have an agent you go to the EEEEEEEEEEnd I mean BOTTOM OF THE PILE WITHOUT BEING CONSIDERED. Well I told you what I knew. Now I have 2 go and work on my dream 2 become an disney channel actress. I hope your dream come's true!!!! Is there a person in this world who knows exactly what 2 do 2 get this. I'm sorry but I can't go an ask SELENA GOMEZ!!!!
You have to find an audition , you can find these by typing DISNEY AUDITIONS into google and it is the first site which shows up , click on it and if you get it then go to it and audition , make sure that you give off the impression that you are a good role model and have a unique personality. Try watching audition tapes for disney on YOUTUBE where there are the audition tapes for present disney channel stars like MILEY CYRUS and you will sort of know what to expect. Also remember to know that you have talent and show it , if you know that you don't have any talent what so ever then don't even bother because you will know that you won't get the part and that some one with some talent will get it instead. But if you truly believe that you have talent and that you stand a chance at getting it then try again and again if you get rejected . BUT REMEMBER THAT IT IS A ONE IN A MILLION CHANCE THAT YOU WILL GET THE CHANCE TO LIVE YOUR DREAM AND BECOME A DISNEY STAR! Good luck

That's great, but I have one warning: Are you pursuing this dream because of your love for acting and entertaining? Or are you following this because you want to become famous? Sounds like a random question, but I give my warning: A lot of girls follow this dream because they want the fame, the glamour, the attention. Being a celebrity isn't all fun and games like it's portrayed. Being a celebrity means loosing your privacy. Being a celebrity means sacrificing your life. Once you're famous, you can NEVER undo it. One a celebrity, always a celebrity. Think about it. You could never walk your dog around the neighborhood without being swarmed by paparazzi. I know it doesn't seem like a big deal, but believe me, it is not anywhere CLOSE to being fun. That's just my opinion.
Well how 2 become an actress you have to pratice everyday do a lot of plays in middle n highschool and also do play write. And ask your drama teacher for sum acting roles. And once you get the hang of it your ready 2 go on the big screen
I am 10 years old and I WOULD DO ANYTHING to become an actress on Disney Channel I have a great voice and I'm a great actress and can dance good when I learn them.BUT the thing is I'm from Ireland so I don't even know if I can get an agent.PLEASE PLEASE HELP Its been my dream since I was 4!!!
My dream was to be an actress. I can sing well and dance also act like I'm in the moment I'm 12 years old and maybe I'm young but I can accomplish anything if I put my mind to it...I know it could be in possible but never think anything is impossible just find a way... For me I don't need an agent my aunt is already an agent and my uncle is a lawyer.....it would be SO cool if I was an actress or a famous singer in Japan my dream .....by the way my hometown is vietnamese
Just take your time! Don't go through Be. Productions. They are rip-offs! Start off acting in your area and then work your way up. Don't get too excited because a lot of things won't work out! When I started, I was singing. I loved being the center of attention when I was around the age of 8! Just have fun with what you love. Don't just act because you want to get money or be famous or work with famous people! Do it because you love it, like me!
I love to sing and act I'm rlly good at it and I'm 13 how do I get discovered by Disney Channel I took modeling and acting classes at Barbizon in Florida I got chosen to go to competition but it was going to cost my parents $765 dollars to fly in the agents from England and Disney and everywhere else around the world and we couldnt afford it.

I'm 13 and I really want to become an actress but the thing is I live in australia and not many directors and stuff like that visit there and my parents would never want to move to America and I'm finding it really hard. I have wanted to become an actress every since I started watching television. I have been in the choir in dance classes in drama classes at school and in musicals at my school and it is the BEST thing performing and acting on stage and I hope someone reads this. I hope at least ONE person on this page will get to the top :)
To become an actress for disney channel you have to want it more than any thing in the world . Like me would give up every thing . I would not take advantage of it like lynsey lo han no eff ense I would be so to every one who did this for me . Any way this is all I want!
I am 12 years old and living in east london ENGLAND and it is really hard to become a disney channel actress while living here. To become a disney channel actress whilst living her IS ONE ON A MILLION because round here you don't really meet to right set of people like agent former actors or famous friends plus most disney channel most disney channel actresses have some type of connections from when they were younger on a different T.V show or have famous parents (AKA Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato)
I don't know exactly but I want to be a disney star too I was told if you are from england like me the you go to london and there is this disney productions place that you go to (same with america) and you ask if you can see a number of scrips choose the 1 you think will start you off in fame and audition I didnt believe it was that easy but I'm going to try it soon because I'm only 12 and a half and I'm in school so I can't just leave school randomly and plus after college in moving to america so I find my life
I'm 11 and I have always wanted to become and actress on disney channel of nickelodeon. I love working with people and have an amazing voice. I've wanted this since I was 4. I live in connecticut and have been in one play but I truly have the abilities. I hope and agent reads this because I'd give anything to be an actress. Its been my dream and I hope to follow it. Good luck to all you others. Maybe I'm not the only one who can't succeed :(
Hey well I too want to become an actress but I don't care where ,,and if you really want to be an actress it shouldn't matter where you appear just that you get the opportunity to live your dream and hopefully enjoy doing it, Much love,,
Well . . . I have the same question! It depends where you live and your talent. I live in Vermont. Not many people even know about it. But my aunt and uncle may be moving to LA. My uncle's going to make a lot of money since he works for a movie producing company. We may move there but . . . Well . . . It will cost a lot of money and I don't want to leave my friends but I really want this. If you truly want to convince your parents to at least let you try to audition for something. Talk to them and tell them you really want this. If you make it they will give you the money. So do what you heart says!
I am amy 14 yrs old and I have a scrap book of all the things I have done Since I was 3 , I do so much drama dancing and singing .

Hi I'm 13 an I want to know how to become an actress at the age of 16 and I'm coming from jamaica I would even like to meet actresses an actors in hollywood an america an all over the world . Thank you
Hey! Everybody has their own dreams and ambitions and one day you will get a chance to have a go at living your dream! Trust me I know I used to go to drama club/acting class, I am really good at acting and a couple of years ago I was the main role in a play and 5 minutes before the play started I panicked as there was 12 talent scouts in the crowd! I don't regret my decision to back down and let an older person to take my role, they were ready for it and I wasn't I was only eight. One day when I'm older I will have another go at getting my big break, but for now all you young people don't just focus on becoming famous for all you know you could be like me and not be ready! I'm not telling you to give up but don't make it your whole life try new things and you may surprise yourself and find something else you love as much! Keep trying to make your dreams come true but try harder when your a lot older, when your ready and have a better chance due to skills and experience.

Acting isn't that easy a career. Firstly, Millions of people want to act and only one in a million make it to what you would call fame. There are millions of 'actors' who spend their lives being waiters and doing the rare advert. It's easy to get starry eyed with all the publicity and reality shows you see on TV, in the end you need talent, something that makes you stand out, confidence and (sorry to say this) a back up plan. Without a back up plan it's so easy for something to go wrong and without even realising it, you'll be on the streets. Before I became a professional TV actress, I would think night and day about how much I wanted it. I started age 16 when I got noticed by a talent scout during a theatre production. Lastly, I would just add, you must want it with all your heart and you mustn't be too disappointed by the first hurdle.
To become a actress or actor you have to work on your singing tones. If its high and you like it keep tring it or if you like it low do that instead.Then do some dances or make up your own. I like to do that . PEACE!!!!!! Love Selena Gomez
HEy,I'm 25 years old turning 14 in October. I want to become an actress for Disney channel.I live in Mississippi so I don't know where to go from here. ALso can one of your family members be an agent.I already know it going to be far.you can send me a e-mail to get me more information. Please.
There are books at the library containing names and ways to get reliable agents. It'll take work, don't expect it to be a Cinderella story of you walking in and the producer saying "My god! She's the one!" It'll take practice, time, and charisma.
The thing is that you must be very funny OH and I am a disney channel actress . You getting a reply from hannah montana .it is in united states of america and good luck I hope you may see me there whenever you comes . Thank you .

There are websites which tells you what roles are needed and offers you the chance to audition for certain parts of disney. I looked at these websites but I live in England so it didn't have any in my area but I hope these couple of websites help you. corporate.disney.go.com target="_blank" rel="external">www.disney-channel-auditions.com
To be honest, I'm not too sure how every disney star really do get the auditions ...
This is a very simple job to understand but difficult to get. You see everyone wants to be on TV but not everybody makes it. In order to become a Disney channel star you will have to first train yourself well. Firstly, try and be as presentable as possible and be a loud speaker. Be expressive as the channel isn't much scripted. Improve on your vocal skills and be impressive at presentation. Take care of your looks.
Lastly when all these things are taken care of,you can contact the agency of the Disney channel in your city and ask them when they will be auditioning. Their auditions are very difficult to get through so be prepared. Once you are aware of the auditions ,asking them over the phone on sample questions and tests. They will tell you about the auditioning program. Once you pass that you will become a star on the channel.
Well first of all I have read all the messages on these sight and answered them all, I work on the set of disney channel I have meet all of the characters of all shows, but firstly you need to live in a big city like LA or New york you also need to take acting lessons this way if you are a good or even great actor or actress they will see the talent in you and they will send you off to a agent , this agent will then give you lots of different audition to see if you have the talent you will then be able to audition for any other program you like.
If you don't live in a big city they I'm sorry this will not happen, but you will be able to take acting lesson and hopefully people will see your talent , but in 99% sure that this will not happen :)
This isn't much help but you need to have an agent, they can call people and talk and set up an audition, if you're that good, and since no more new shows are coming on Disney channel, maybe you can start one. If you don't have an agent, then you can look in your daily newspaper and see if there's anything for that, Hope this help you!! Good LUCK!!!!!
I am seven years of age ,I have always wanted to be an actress on the Disney channel because it is the best channel in the universe , I am always telling jokes and acting daft in front of my family and especially my Nana's I have a great voice but I am from England will that be a problem. Please help it has been my dream since I was 4.
Wow, I want to become an actress for ABC family or disney channel so bad, I'm 11 and don't say your dream will NEVER come true! Never is just ever with an N in front of it. It will come true if you work hard and get experience. Don't sit and mope and dream and pray and wish, work for it! Get experience and get an agent and work on your singing/dancing/acting, and yes I mean all of those.
I want to become an actress my name is Cynthia Arias I am 14 year old I go to high school 9 grader becoming an actress has been my dream since I was in 5 grade I use to think I won't make it But now that I go to this school I believe I can become an actress because we have project about our interest
I'm 11 years old and I wanted to become an actress all my life. I live in SC and there are absolutely NO agents here I can be discovered by. I asked my mom if we could go live in L.A so I might have a chance and her reply was NO! I HAVE AN AWESOME JOB HERE. She also said to think about the cost of the plane tickets and everything else and if I don't make it then that would be a total waste of money. I bugged her so much I got grounded. It was worth her knowing I was commited to my dream and HOPEFULLY she will feel bad about it ... But I doubt that.
If you want to make it big as an actress then you should go to a acting school now, then go to a performing arts collage. Thats what I am doing now. (I'm 14 and live in england) then when I hit 18 I am moving to hollywood and getting an agent and I'm going to chace my dream. All I can't say to help you is practice your acting skills a lot and try different emotions. Then go to auditions, if you get turned down keep on trying! Don't let anything put you down. You can get there in the end if you try you best! Hope your dream comes true xxxxxxxx
I don't know what grade you are in but if time permitting sign up for all the plays for now, sign up for as many drama classes at school(are there still drama classes at school these days).stay in good with the drama teachers and pump them for imformation.every body knows some one, if they are drama teachers there's a good reason for it and they probably have friends of same interests or a friend of their friend.And be prepared for discouragement, you wont fly to the moon over night and don't think that its not a dog eat dog world in the movie bizz.someone will just soon step on you to get closer to their dream.
Well I'm 12 and I've been looking for a while for my lil sis and me to be a star on disney but still do not have a result so if you figure any thing out just text me or call me at 1718 414 3607 and tell me what you found out because my 8 year old sister wants to be famous actress and me to.We live in New York and I think we might be able to catch catch and if we can result numbers I can do the same for you
Hey I'm 11 to I want to become a actress also. I am starting out to become an actor so I might be on disney channel in a year or two. Hers some advice well my dad is a website maker so he is going to make a website for me its going to have the payment for photo-shoot tv show or a commercial so you should go to www.ning.com to make a website. I was doing some research on how Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez got famous and I found that they had auditions in Hollywood for a disney show and she got the wizards of waverly place so try out and maybe I will see you there Hannah
First of all, get into smaller plays and build up experience. Get a good agent who won't charge you for photo shoots or things like that, or who PROMISES you a job. Try to find a reliable source. And, most importantly, DO NOT GIVE UP!!!!!;-D
I have found a website called contact any celebrity and you can join it but it costs (not a lot) and you can look up the singer, actress, actor and ask them questions about how to become what you want to be and ask about agents they can help
I think every single person would want to have a chance at becoming famous, well because being famous is cool you get so many advantages. I'm 12 turning 13 in September. I been wanting to be on tv since I was 3. I been doing dance since I was 4. And now I'm going to be attending singing lessons. I do all this because I love to sing, act and dance! I want to be on TV more then anything. I would give up so much to be an actress singer or professional dancer. So for all of you who want to become famous heres a website to help you out disney-channel-auditions.com
I my name is sadie...I am 13 going to be 14 in november...I just want to help yall out here....if yall really want to reach far out there to act...a great site is www.talenthunter.com...if your parents have a credit card ask them nicely and they would most probably help you upgrade a profile to gold...
Hey, I'm 13. And My Inspiration is Demi Lovato, I'm from Philippines and It's my dream being an actress in Disney Channel, Like Sonny with A Chance or Good luck Charlie. I sing and I act. I sing like Demi that's why she is my inspiration. It's my dream since I was 10. I'm planning to get an agent from California.. I want this so bad. I'm in a band. Thanks. [email protected]
Start out with getting an agent. He'll give you the heads up when an audition is ready. You could also join a talent site and pay money for the site to show your profile to agents but that's not worth it I've tried (unless you have the money which I don't). But yeah start with an agent and audition your heart out.
You should look in the phone book and look for a modeling agency. Then get your Head shots done. After that look for disney channel casting calls and if you can't fly out to California send in a tape of yourself and see if disney likes you.But you might want to take acting classes first.Hope I helped!
@aballgum, you will need an agent for tv and movies, because there are 2 types or agents; one for commercials and one for tv and film. Good luck! But don't pay them upfront!, pay them 10% - 15% of what you are paid when they get you a job.
Hey I'm 12. Two years ago I really wanted to be a disney channel actress I searched and searched I never found any answers. The only way you can is if your family member is an actress or something and can get yoiu a gig most likely yopur dream woont come true :(
