Find your gateway to the stars
√ Are you tired of doing jobs you hate?
√ Are you sick of not auditioning enough?
√ Are you wanting to earn enough money as an actor so that you don’t have to have other jobs?
√ Do you want more casting directors and directors to want to see you for roles?
√ Do you dread when it’s time to pay your rent?
If you answered YES to any or all of the above, then I am so glad you stopped by. Being able to answer NO to these questions isn’t magic. It’s something everyone can do.
You have the opportunity to change everything, and to live the acting life you’ve always dreamed of living.
Did I ever tell you about the time I was working in a coffee shop (in my 30’s)?
Yep. Been there, done that. And then I was in my 30’s doing it ALL OVER AGAIN?
I needed an income, and acting wasn’t providing me with enough money to live off solo. So I found myself looking for other work, and when I couldn’t get a desk job, I had to hit the local coffee shop and ask them for work. I couldn’t believe it.
I especially remember this one day when this woman came in on a Sunday morning and approached the counter. She looked all fancy and full of money. She ordered her bacon and eggs deluxe breakfast and then proceeded to say “And can I get the bacon extra crispy please.” And she flashed her killer smile as she shimmied off to find a table with her perfect husband. I looked at that woman and I knew I wanted her life, for realzzz…I wanted to come in on a Sunday chilling with my partner, enjoying a warm breakfast, cup of coffee in hand, and giggling about the fabulous dinner party we had thrown the night before. I didn’t want to worry if my card would decline as I ordered my takeaway coffee on the way to all my crappy other day jobs.
Working at that cafe definitely showed me what I didn’t have and it was back breaking work, serving customers day in, day out, hoping that I wouldn’t have to mop the floors at close time (which of course I would have to!). But it didn’t stop there.
I also had a temp job where I would rock up every morning to see if they would place me that day for a role. Even if I wasn’t required, I had to go to the effort of turning up there in peak hour (I paid for transport), suited and booted, and wait to see if any companies had a short fall of office staff. On my birthday, I arrived at 8am at said company to see if I was going to be temping for the day. Turns out I wasn’t. Afterwards, I left and went off to buy a coffee and the transaction was rejected because my card was in negative. I couldn’t even buy myself an espresso. On my birthday! I burst into tears and called my mum, a sobbing wreck.
Needless to say, it was a low point. I hardly ever tell anyone about that story because I’m so embarrassed that it happened. At the time I felt stupid that I wanted to pursue a career in acting, when I couldn’t even get a temp job for a day. I felt stupid that I wasn’t booking auditions, and when I did, they didn’t call me back. It all felt fake. The whole lot of this shiny, bright, bullsh*t career.
Eventually, it all came to a grinding halt. I decided I wanted more. I was going to work in the acting industry full time. I was going to change things.
I did so much work on myself. And on top of that, I started getting really clear about my goals, what I wanted, where I wanted to be acting, and what would make me happy. I considered the things I didn’t want to do any more, and the things that I wanted more of (film, television, commercials, voiceovers). I worked out what was holding me back. I went deep and I looked into my fears and any habits that I had that might be leading me to self sabotage amazing opportunities. I realised:
- I needed to be more structured.
- I needed to get real and authentic about what truly mattered to me.
- I needed to let go of the crap mindset habits that were holding me back.
- I used my 10+ years of business experience from my previous corporate career and applied it.
- I systematically put steps into place to teach myself how I would do things differently.
- I meditated.
- I journaled.
- I wrote down ALL my goals…every last one of them.
- I created a planner.
Essentially I had made a plan. A serious plan. A plan I believed in. And it became a planner, one that I could systematically work through to get myself out of my rut.
So where am I at now?
Well I’m so glad you asked. Now I’m a full time working actor. I use the same planner that I did then to this very day. I have developed a way of working towards my dreams, one step at a time. And it works.
Way back then when I was working in a cafe I never honestly felt like I was ever going to get out of that life. I felt like I was so stuck. And now? Now I wake up and do what I love every single day.
And do you know what?
That can be you! All you need is a little hand in showing you how you go about it. Someone to guide you through your personal pain points so you don’t keep hitting the same blocks over and over and over again. Because trust me, that’s what we often do as humans. But we don’t need to.
There are other ways. You can have it all.
Begin Acting. Be Everything. It’s the whole ethos behind my acting and mentoring business. I help actors to Begin Acting and to Be Everything they imaged that they could be. Plus some.
I built my whole brand around this belief.
I truly believe that you can create your own star and live a life of acting bliss. And now it’s my honour to be able to help you do it.
Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here.

Here we go deep. It is time to delve into your first thoughts and feelings behind your love of and interest in a career in acting. After all, you need to understand why you love it, and where that love came from in the first place. From here you start to examine exactly what you want – be that financially, work-wise, and even how big you want your social media following to be.

This is your dramatic climax, where you pen down all your passions and dreams into actionable quantifiable goals. It’s the getting-down-to-business part of your journey; the nuts and bolts of your success planning for the career you’ve been dreaming of. You create quantifiable plans using strategies that have proven to work for me and and for my mentee’s time and time again.

Let’s talk through who can become part of your entourage, to help you in your journey to making your exciting new dream goals become your reality. Here you’ll get ideas on exactly why these other acting people are so important on your journey to complete acting freedom.
♥ Act 6:
Discover how the modern world of positive psychology and wellbeing is all encompassing and how it can work for you. It is just as important as letter writing and goal planning. You are given a chance to explore ways to create new excellent daily habits that will be life affirming, and good for you, the actor.
A celebration of all you have achieved by working through CREATE, and quite literally creating a new plans for a successful acting career. This is the first phase before you go out and make it happen (by the Finale, it will have already started I’m sure). And remember, you can come back this book each and every time you need to reinvigorate your career, or change tact.
Hi, I’m Angela. I am an experienced and accomplished actor who been helping actors and mentoring actors for over a decade, as well as working in the industry myself (so I know how it all really works). As an expert writer for Backstage, having published works in Casting Networks, The Stage, and various other acting blogs and publications, as well as a highly read and publicised award-winning blog for actors, I’m considered an authority in the business of acting, and creating positivity in your career.
I’ve worked on huge movie sets, I’ve been cast as a hero on numerous international commercials, worked on stage, been in cinema released movies and can even be seen on Amazon from time to time, as well as voicing huge commercials and brands. A psychology degree under my belt too, along with years of acting experience, as well as mentoring actors and business professionals, has given me a unique insight into how people best change their habits, and improve their performance. It all happens using practical business skills along with some magical transformative thought processes. And let’s face it, business skills are what most actors lack. Let me help you!
I am passionate about helping you have the career you always imagined. I truly believe hand-on-my-heart that there is enough space in the industry for anyone who wants to do it. You just need a willingness to work hard, and to follow your heart and your goals in equal proportions!
Making CREATE has been an absolute dream for me because now I have a way to help thousands of actors around the globe to work on their careers with more structure and less guesswork. And because it’s in book form, it means you can return to your planner time and time again to get that success surge anytime you need it.
“As an actor, it can sometimes be overwhelming trying to navigate where to spend your time and energy. While it’s important to always hustle hustle hustle it’s easy to get lost in the sea of “to dos.” I loved doing Angela Peter’s actor’s planner How to Create
Your Own Star because it helped put everything into perspective for me. Through it, I was able to identify my strengths and weakness: to reflect on my past work and really zero in on what I want the next year of my career to look like. The exercises in the book helped me to get specific and reminded me of why I got into acting in the first place. I found the book easy to use and inspiring. The structure of the book allowed me to work easily one chapter at a time and make notes as I went along. I’d highly recommend this book to any actor who wants to take the bull by the horns and take their career to the next level.”
Liz McMullen, Actress
“What an amazing book! I’d been looking for a practical guide on pursuing an acting career for years and this book totally has it covered. With its user friendly guide and positive and helpful advice, I can’t recommend it enough. There are chapters on celebrating your successes and recognising areas of development. There’s also exercises to complete on goal setting and planning which is applicable at any point of an acting career. I also really enjoyed the fun and supportive way this book is written too. Go and get a copy now!”
