Becoming a Disney star is one of the biggest possible opportunity for a young actor who wants to make it on the A list star. Disney has launched so many careers and is the main reason why we have big young stars nowadays like Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Zac Efron, Demi Lovato and so many rising starts.
Disney is always on the lookout for new faces. Casting calls for Disney movies are being done all of the time, there are online auditions as well. Landing main and supporting roles in Disney movies is not exactly easy. You have to work your way around it before it occurs. Before you go to any casting calls for Disney movies, make sure that you have an impressive resume, which means you need to at least have joined 5 or more theater stage productions. This could be from your school or local projects in the community.
You must have tried several roles. You need to have enrolled in several acting, singing and dancing schools. You should learn the basics of acting, how to face the camera, how to project, how to modulate your voice and how to appear confident.
You need to get on stage looking decent. You don’t really have to look like Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie. Nonetheless it would be a tremendous help if you have a funky and trendy hair, clothes that resemble some of the biggest Disney stars but without necessarily replicating the way they look. You need to create your own signature brand and appear in the best way possible. It would also be a plus if you have already joined other reality TV shows so that the casting directors will know that you are already recognizable.
Moreover, you can also put up viral videos of yourself in order to get noticed.
Do not easily get disheartened. If you did not get through the casting calls for Disney movies because of several criticisms or they just thought it was not enough, you can always prepare for another role and hope that you land it in the next casting for Disney Channel. The key is to never give up.
