Happy Tuesday! Today is a special episode of #GuruTips for those of you whose goals involve TV, and you feel stuck with the level of roles you have access to.

For many actors (myself included), making the jump from smaller co-star roles to more meaty guest star roles can be… a struggle! If you only have 1 or 2-liners on your reel, it can be tough for casting to consider giving you a bigger shot. It’s that classic catch-22, you need a guest star to book a guest star, but you can’t book a guest star without a guest star!

So, what to do? I’m sharing three tips and actions you can take to make it over that hurdle. I used these exact steps myself, so I can tell you – they work! Check it all out below!
