Acting is NOT about being loud. Extroverted people *tend* to land more roles because they are willing to take risks and they put themselves in lots of auditions. Over and over and over again.

If you want to learn how to become more comfortable auditioning and acting in general, I recommend an improv class or two. Beginner classes are specifically for people with little to no experience on stage (at local improv theaters).

You become an actor by acting.

Start with your local community theater and/or area theater troupes. Audition often, even while you're not very good. Ask actors that you see at those auditions (especially those who are good) where reputable acting classes are and then take them.

Study good actors. There are online master classes from actors you can watch. Take an improv class (or two).

In other words, treat acting like any other art form: study, practice, work.

For every actor who succeeded without training, there are a thousand who didn't. Acting is an extremely competitive business. You can only help yourself more by getting trained. Even trained actors have an unemployment rate of around 50%!

That is exactly right. Just start practicing with a friend or sign up for a class. Why would you expect to be good at something you have never tried.

Lug is a large, green robot whose main problem with scavenging for parts is that he can never find them in his size. Later in the movie, he is converted into a professional-wrestler robot in order to fight evil robots.

All actors start with no experience. A good place to get started is to volenteer to help with a community theater doing what ever job they need, not nesesarily on stage. This will give you an opportunity to see what the process is, then you audition for a part in the next production.

Can you start a club at your school? Or just start an acting club with your friends. Find a few plays in the library and try reading through them.

If you understand the material and the motivation of the character it will help you to memorize because you will understand why the character is saying whatever he or she is saying at that time. So find a script with a small part and begin to practice with a friend. This is something you can do on your own without going to school but it will help you if you ever get a part.
