  1. Sadly, there isn't. I have looked into the talent visa before but I think you have to be in Australia in order to apply for it and you also need to be nominated by someone who is well-established within the same field. So at the moment, my option is going over on WHV and working super hard to establish myself best I can and seeing how it goes.
  2. Yes I do completely understand what it is. Little confusion there, sorry for that. I meant 'moving' over using the WHV to test the waters and see what opportunities are out there, as opposed to migrating over there.
  3. Ahhhh I see. Yes of course, completely understand - that makes perfect sense. You're definitely right. I am planning to come over on WHV and my plan was to see what happens within the year but I just wanted to put the feelers out (so to speak) beforehand to see what I could find out before I make a move. Thank you, again!
  4. @richandniki If I come across any advice that would benefit your daughter re: potentially moving over then I will be happy to pass it on to you. Has she got a showreel or clips of her on the UK soaps because she could always send them over to casting directors and agencies in Australia to get her foot in the door - seeing as though she will already have credits from her role in a UK soap.
  5. Thanks @Marisawright for the help! Currently I'm not planning on putting on a show - I'm looking more at TV and Film roles so that last little section of your message is incredibly helpful in regards to that. I am definitely aware that the competition will be fierce, I don't doubt that for a second but then I guess the competition within this industry is fierce no matter where you go. I'm currently in London where a huge proportion of the opportunities are and it is still insanely competitive here and the city is saturated with aspiring actors, LA is the same. As much as London is great and filled with the creative industry, the lifestyle here is nothing compared to Australia's lifestyle. And this is why I'm interested is moving over because if there are acting opportunities in Australia then I'd much rather be living where I used to live in Sydney and making the most of the lifestyle out there rather than being stuck in a smoggy city where nobody smiles at eachother and there are absolutely no beaches, unless you count a bit of mud on the side of the Thames haha! Thanks so much for your reply, appreciate you taking the time to reply and if you have any other info then that would be amazing!
  6. Hoping someone is able to help me out and offer advice! Little bit of a different topic. So I've been over to Australia a couple of times and fell in love with it. And in typical British fashion, would love to up sticks and move there. I've got quite a lot of close family friends and school friends who live out there so luckily I wouldn't be completely alone over there. I'm currently studying a Masters in Professional Acting in London and for the last year, I have been contemplating moving after I have graduated. It's now or never right? But my main concern is my career choice. I'm well aware that the acting industry is tough and very competitive no matter where you are - however I was wondering if anybody on here knows a thing or two about the Acting Industry over in Australia - specifically Sydney, or even Melbourne? If so, I have a couple of questions. What is the industry like? Is it a good place to be for a career in Acting? How tough is getting an agent? And are the agencies good out there in terms of getting you auditions? Do you get many opportunities in terms of Film & TV? Is it possible to get representation if only on a Working Holiday Visa? Do they offer opportunities to audition for US TV shows & Films? Any advice would be amazing!! Would massively appreciate it as it is hard to find advice on this through google. Thank you, Zoe
