Honestly, you’ll probably bomb the first couple no matter what the circumstances, so just get over it and go!
I hate to sound harsh, but if you want to be in this industry you need to start stepping out of your comfort zone and just do it!
Yeah I wouldn’t ask for a referral, but you could always be like “hey do you of any agents or agencies you think are good that you’d recommend I submit To?” And then usually they’ll give you something or be like oh I know someone I’ll send them your info! But no one is going to put their name out there unless you’re good.
Honestly it took a good 8 months- a year. But I worked hard! Just keep going!
Well kissing is probably the most awkward. But honestly if you’re not in your head, but engaged in the scene and the other person.. That to me is not even awkward, because I feel it. I want to kiss them because I’m so into my character, and my character obviously wants to kiss them.
You’re going to encounter many things in classes, because that’s where you learn! Where you grow, work on getting over awkwardness and such. Don’t stress about this!
It’s always going to be uncomfortable kissing someone in acting. I totally sympathize with you. The first time I had to do it though I had already kissed guys before so I wasn’t as nervous as I take it you are. Honestly, just an innocent kiss is so easy and nothing to be scared about. Once you do it, you’ll be like what the heck?! That’s what I was so nervous for?! Haha but before your scene I suggest you guys just kiss and get that out of the way, then rehearse it so you can look as comfortable as the scene calls you to be.
Don’t be scared! Just be bold and face your fears. That’s something I’ve learned with acting. If you wanna get places and get better just jump in!
