It's possible as long as you dedicate yourself to it. Believe it or not, the biggest factor in becoming an actor isn't skill. Most people get jobs because of luck. Don't get me wrong, you still need skill, but that won't always get you the job. First thing you need to do is find your "type". That's the kind of character someone could see you playing. I've always been told that my type is the really mellow character that is the dude friend. I've also been told I could be the quiet guy that really committed the murder. You need to know this before looking for an agent. You have the right mindset to be an actor. People who do it expecting to become famous are always the ones that walk away defeated. It's the people who do it because they love to that will do better. You will face rejection, and a lot of it as an actress. Remember to never let your talent come into question. Actors are just story tellers, and you may not be the best to tell that story. If you love it, do it. That's why I majored in theatre. Just keep in mind that you shouldn't expect to make a full living off of it. Less than a fraction of a percent of actors can be financially stable doing just acting. Break a leg out there.
