He graduated from one of the theatre and the cinema universities of the country. Even in the senior years, try (if it is not contrary to the Charter of the University or mentors) to be in the crowd. To be filmed in crowd scenes, sometimes quite regularly to read announcements, for example, on the website http://birza-truda.ru or on the official websites of the Russian companies. It is possible that your character will appeal to the assistant Director for human resources (now he can be called, for example, and casting Manager) for the selection of candidates and the role is yours. However, even if your plans and not part of a degree profile University, you can also try to go to casting, especially if you need actors for crowd scenes of your facial features.
Gaining experience in the frame, try to fully meet all requirements of the Director. As in any job, everyone needs to show their best side. Do not try by all means to attract the attention of workers in the site: in the end, you just point to the door. On the contrary, when the same Director will start the next project, he is more likely to be interested in obedient performers rather than the eccentric newcomers.
Even if you are offered a role with the words, soberly assess their strength and not get to work, not sure if that will do it. At the initial stage of film career, any error leads to the fact that you will have forever to say goodbye with a dream to Shine on TV screens.
Work a few years playing small roles (with and without words). If you did not pay enough attention to none of the Russian Director, then acting is not for you.

However, your undoubted advantage will be experience in the filming area, as almost all Russian films are now on American technology.
If possible find yourself a decent agent for actors.

Remember that Russian actors are usually offered the role, far from the glittering images of Hollywood gods.
