Are you planning to act? Do you have somebody who will hire you for acting? When you, then it will be time to see what visa can work for you.

You need to consult with an experienced Immigration Attorney. As a SAG-AFTRA member myself, most agents are looking for experienced talent d=for serious film projects.

You start by talking to the agents. Then an immigration attorney once your plans finalized, not the other way around.
