I think that you should always follow your dreams but don't get so caught up in them that you can't see reality! There is a fine line and if you're not careful bad things could happen!

If it's what you want, then go after it. If my parents had their way, I'd be running varsity cross country at a private school, but I wanted to do marching band at a public school, so I did, and I'm very happy that way. Don't let others decide your future!

If you want more than anything else, and if you work hard you can do anything. Your dream is a dream worth chasing. Tell your parents how you feel and why you feel that way. It is your life after all. If you don't follow this dream, later on in life who is going to be the one regretting it, you or your parents?

no, it doesn't matter what other people think even if those people are your parents, is you want to be an actress then go for it, as long as you're not doing it for the fame, I suggest you sit your parents down and tell them that you would really love for them to support you, but even if they don't you're still gonna do it,

Fight for your dream! There is no such thing as a dream not worth chasing. You have such easy acess to chasing your dream that there's actually no point in not at least trying. If you give up on anything that makes you happy, you will only regret it. Don't listen to anyone's opinion; chase your dreams!

You can become an actress without being famous. Plenty of people make it as performers and live normal lives. You can accomplish your dream and still be a "regular" person. Sometimes we just have to look at different ways to accomplish them. Hollywood doesn't make people happy and shouldn't set the standard for what would make us happy. Go for it, be an actress and even if you don't get a star on a sidewalk, doesn't mean you won't be successful at it!

You should find a mentor or a guidance councillor to show you what this entails. I would also sign up for all the school plays and amateur theater productions you can find especially w/summer right around the corner. This experience will give you a good idea of what this life is like...
Good luck!!

Hey Hun! DO NOT LET ANYONE STEAL YOUR DREAM,IT'S YOURS NOT THEIRS your parents have your best interest at heart. It's important to keep up your education no matter what even if you can't go to school get a tutor. Getting a job in the acting world is hard and your parents can't encourage you to do something that may not work out. Tell them how you feel. Even if they don't approve. Don let that stop you!

As far as acting goes I can be of assistance :) good luck, honey!
