The new update to BitLife grants players the opportunity to become a famous movie star actor! Just like everything else though, you’ll have to work your way from the ground up to make it big in Hollywood. We’ll show you the ropes in our BitLife guide on how to become an actor, so strap in and let’s make you a star!
Starting your Character
Like most actors on the big screen, you gotta look the part to get the part. Ideally you want your character to start their life with a relatively high looks stat – preferably somewhere around 80%, but the higher the better. You may want to consider remaking your character if your look stat is extremely low, as it will just be an uphill battle trying to get your looks up. Your other stats aren’t as important, so try to aim for a high looks attribute.

As always, being nice to your family and friends is a good way to get unexpected bonuses and to make sure that they don’t become problems later in your life. You can age up as normal, but when you get to high school be sure to check the clubs and join the Drama/Improv club at your school if it’s being offered. This will greatly increase your chances of having acting jobs show up.
Working your Way to Stardom
Study hard and do well in high school and you should be good to go. Hopefully you joined an acting club because that will also help. Once you get out of high school, you actually don’t need any further education but it you can go for it if you’d like. If you do decide to go to college, be sure to choose an artsy major, like Dance, Music, Art, etc.
Once you’re ready to become a star, start looking at the job listings every year and look for Voiceover Actor. This is the entry level job for the acting career line, so everyone will need to start here first. If you don’t get it when you apply, try upping your looks more and you should eventually be able to get the job.

Becoming a Famous Actor
Once you get the job, be sure to work hard and make sure not to slack off. Eventually you’ll be promoted to Actor, and then finally Lead Actor. You’ll be making the big bucks at this point, but strangely enough you probably won’t be famous.
The reason being for this is that for whatever reason you cannot get famous as an actor until you’re somewhat middle aged, around your 40’s. Even if you do well as a young and aspiring actor, you will never become famous.
With that said, once you are a famous actor, the same things still apply as with other fame related jobs, so that means you’ll have to keep up appearances and host signing, photoshoots, and more.
And that’s it! You’re now an officially recognized actor. If you have any other tips or tricks to share, let us know in the comments below!
