    Name This Film? A Chinese Boy’s mother is killed and a British thug type guy looks after him as he grows up. The thug type guy gets the Chinese boy (late teens) to fight in illegal fighting places. The guy is very good at fighting and kills the guy he fights instantly. At the End, a black guy smashed a plant pot or something over the Thug’s head and the boy finds out how his mother died.

    Sorry, Kinda a vague description.
    Thanks, Shadow. I’ll vote your comment when I can!

    How To Become A Famous Actress Uk? I really enjoy acting (more specifically film acting) and have been told I’m good at it, ‘a natural’ etc. As long as I remember I have always wanted to be a famous actress. Some of my family members and relatives enjoy acting like me and have become extras and been in adverts and a few small movies etc. They said the reason they never made it very big was probably because they started way too late – and there were already actors in Hollywood like them. The thing is, I live in the UK and I know for a fact that this makes it harder to get jobs as a film actor – apparently in the U.S you don’t need to go to colleges such as RADA. I have this feeling that if I take the route of going to a drama school in the UK I will never get anywhere – should I move to the U.S after school? Where to? I am already taking a six month foundation course in acting in my gap year, and I take drama GCSE, and will also take it for A-level, at the moment I am 16. I go to a film acting class and soon I will be auditioning for and hopefully getting an agent (hopefully) – from the same company that Helena Bonham Carter’s agent was from when she was younger. Thank you for any help:)
    Thank you for all the answers – I think I have confused people by exaggerating the fact that I want to be ‘famous’ I don’t JUST want to be a famous actress – there are many other ways to become famous if that is what i wanted to be, I only put ‘famous’ there because if i just put ‘how to become an actress’ i would get answers saying to have it as a hobby which is definitely not what i want to do + I love film acting a lot more than stage acting. I sound very naive in this and I’m honestly not as naive as I sound – It’s just disappointing to think I have to go to drama school because I really can’t afford to anyway – and after years of spending thousands at school I probably won’t get anywhere – it could just be a massive waste of time and money, I was wondering if I wouldn’t have to go if I worked extremely hard and got into lots of auditions etc.

      You say “I have this feeling that if I take the route of going to a drama school in the UK I will never get anywhere”. You mean that if you go to drama school you may end up a “nobody” like Alan Rickman, Gary Oldman, Jeremy Irons, Colin Firth, Daniel Day-Lewis, Benedict Cumberbatch, Damian Lewis, Tom Hiddleston, Judi Dench, Vanessa Redgrave, Alex Kingston, Gemma Arterton and all those other UK drama-schooled actors who have “never got anywhere” and never appear in Hollywood films?….Oh, wait….

      You seem to be confusing three things – being an actor, being a Hollywood actor and being famous. I think you need to focus on what you actually want. Most successful actors did not go into acting to become famous and drama schools, agents, casting directors etc will think you are very immature and unprofessional if you make it obvious that being a star is more important to you than the craft of acting.

      While it is true that drama school training is more focused on theatre acting than film acting, it does include training in screen acting and, more importantly than that, studying at an renowned drama school will get you access to important industry contacts, like agents, directors, casting directors and successful actors, and will signal to potential employers in the field that you are taking acting seriously as a career. You have to realise that millions of young people dream of being actors – it tends to be the ones who have shown a commitment to the profession by doing a 3-year course in professional acting that get treated seriously by people in the industry and not just viewed as amateur starstruck fangirls/fanboys.

      A few people in the UK do get acting careers without going to drama school, but they are the exception instead of the rule and often fall into one of the following groups: (a) former child actors, who have been working professionally from a young age and got on-the-job training and experience, e.g. Kate Winslet, Keira Knightley, Daniel Radcliffe (b) Oxbridge graduates, e.g. Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson (c) people who move into acting from another branch of the entertainment industry, e.g. music, comedy, presenting e.g. Bradley Walsh, Lenny Henry, Mel C etc (d) people who have friends and family in the industry already who can pull strings for them. You get the occasional person (e.g. Carey Mulligan, Bob Hoskins) who makes it without drama school training or being from one of these groups, but it is rare. Often these people find it harder to be taken seriously (Helena Bonham Carter is an acclaimed actress now, but when she first started out she was considered a bit of a joke and had to work incredibly hard to shake off her “lucky amateur” image).

      You also have to realise that most aspiring actors, in both the UK and the US, never make it. Even a lot of drama-school trained actors fail to make a living as an actor, but having a drama school training behind you will vastly increase your chances of success, even if you subsequently decide to move to the States and try for Hollywood. UK-trained actors are often in demand in Hollywood, precisely because of the skills they have gained from drama school. There’s a reason why Alan Rickman is never out of work!

      Good luck.

    Name This Film: About Kids Jumping In A Rainbow? This was in the 90’s, a very disturbing film because people were left behind.
    When they jumped in there was no colour on the other side.
