YouTube is a great tool for learning new things, getting the inside scoop on your industry and finding out what’s going on with your fellow actors.

Whether you yourself have a YouTube channel or not, you should make the most of it. So we’ve rounded up 3 great channels that’ll get you started into your YouTube foray.

1. Backstage

Backstage has over 50k subscribers already – and it’s easy to see why. With a selection of acting tips, insider info from casting directors and one-on-ones with agents, you can spend days going down this rabbit hole of information.

Just keep a notepad and pen at the ready to jot down any great new ideas!

2. Tips on Acting

Run by Amy Jo Berman, who spent 20 years as a casting director and former VP of casting at HBO, she posts videos that answer a whole bunch of questions from the wider acting community.

Her mission is to take the “struggling” out of “struggling actor” – if that sounds good to you, you can find her channel below!

3. Act on This – The TV Actor’s Network

This YouTube channel is run by Ross Grant, a very enthusiastic Brit who has pulled together an online community of TV actors and populates his Vlog with a series of videos on what you need to know about the acting business and how to pay your bills using acting (and just acting!)

A bit of a newer blog, but with over 1k subscribers already, surely one to watch!
