So I'm a girl from the south and I want to move to California in a few months when I turn 18, unfortunately I have a very closed minded family , first of all my dad said I'm not moving out ,and that I need to go to college or get married (which I

Answers:

He can’t stop you. The consequences are he could refuse to pay for college later if things don’t work out, and I’m sure he won’t pay for acting classes, voice coach or related things.

As long as you know what you are getting into (meaning the odds are long and you can look forward to many years of struggle), I say go fort it. I am fortunate in that my parents are ok with it (less so over the years, but still ok enough), but even if they were not, I would be here in Los Angeles doing what I do.

Indeed if you want to get into acting you might be invited to join a director on the "casting couch" (though less so after the days of the Harvey Weinstein revelations and the #MeToo movement), but why would they kill you? A good actor or actress is a valuable assert to a film studio, thus is looked after well.

Indeed acting is an insecure profession, actors are never sure of a "career", but I expect you have done some research into that sort of matter.

Good luck - in acting you will need it.

Read Katrina's advice. She's right.
There are thousands and thousands of teens just like you in California - it's far more competitive than you seem to think.
Having a few lessons means nothing.
If you had a degree in drama, that would help - but you don't need to do to LA for that!
If you had years of stage experience with a reputable community theatre in a big city, that too would help.
If you'd taken leading roles in a few dozen student films/short films/indies which have won major awards, that also would help.

But even after all that, even if you do get to be a professional actor, you're highly likely to be like almost all actors - getting fewer than ten days' paid acting work a year, in small roles, in small productions. That's the reality.

Climb on to the roof of your house and don't come down until they let you become a famous actress, or something.

@ 18 your parents can't stop you but it's really hard to become a famous actress.
