    we young actors sometimes need advice or a friend to bend an ear .. We have many young actors on ccp who feel they cant talk to the older actors as some older actors are still seeking agents themselfs so a few young actors and we need more hint hint to be willing to give honest advice and support each other with getting a gent how to get a castings how to promote yourself and most of all back you up im just one of the ppl who are willing to do this for young actors blucky mickey churchill

    Yup....that is a good thing...helping each other out. I think us actors do get a bit insular at times.

    At the end of the day Mark, we are all trying to succeed in this line of work! Its like bringing up a puppy, they want to explore and find out where the food is, evetually they find out becuase they watch their owners where they hide it. Guidence is what we need and they only way we can find that is through forums.

    Surely CCP is a site for sharing experience and advice for actors of all age groups? Many actors come into the business later than others and it should be a space to openly discuss all aspects regardless of age, experience, ethnicity, religion and/or all other forms of discrimination! Isn't that the meaning of the word forum, an open discussion of subjects of public interest?

    yes but sometimes new members feel they cant pm people maybe they are nervous or dyslexic but they need advice so its good to know that like amir mark myself have posted we are open to pm to show kindness cos we all in this together as performers some of us might end up as casting directors agents or directors its nice to be nice mickey

    I think this is a great idea, I'll probably take up the offer at some point, but I'm always willing to help if I can in some way as well!

    My 'door' (pm) is always open to help if I can - but I wanted to say that no-one should feel 'silly' about asking a question, - and by posting it on the forum you may help someone else who didn't know the answer to it either. We are all always learning. Also people have different ideas and suggestions - I think there is usually a better understanding of the answer to a question when there are several brains giving their answers/opinions together.

    Power is in numbers - me thinks xxxx

    What is that saying - 'together stronger than the sum of it's parts'
