Many Sims move to Del Sol Valley for a chance at fame, but does yours have what it takes to make it onto the silver screen? Before you can hit the town and start auditioning you’re going to need to find a Talent Agency to represent you.

As your Sims successfully completes acting gigs they will be promoted to the next level of their career. Like most careers, promotions can come with a promotion bonus and unlock cool new career objects. Unlocked sets can be found in the ‘Styled Rooms’ section in Build Mode.

Talent Agencies

There are four agencies in town that can help you find what open auditions are happening, although only two of them will represent a newcomer. Once you’ve gained a bit more experience you’ll attract the attention of the other agencies. If at any time in your career you wish to change your agency you can use your phone or a computer to “Hire a New Acting Agency.”

A.I Staffing Agency (Level 1 Actor)
Consider A.I Staffing, [applicantName]! Our agents look forward to booking your unproductive time with work. Please enable notifications to stay informed on the latest [jobField] opportunities. Benefits: Improved automated reminders. Maximize your time spent working.

Everyday Extras Agency (Level 1 Actor)
Our team has put faces into every wide angle crowd shot this town has ever filmed. We will find you work, no matter how small the role. Benefits: More auditions for commercial and Daytime TV gigs.


Well Suited Talent Agency (Level 4 Actor)
Well Suited Talent represents only the best, who perform their best, and expect the best. You don’t become an icon without some sweat, some tears, and more wardrobe changes than a storefront mannequin during fashion week. Benefits: Better negotiated pay for drama and action Prime Time TV and Movie gigs.

G.R.A.N Talent Agency (Level 4 Actor)
Join the Goldie Ruthfield family. Our team will provide you with the same care and guidance that Goldie provided to Silver Screen Legends such as Chesterfield Cupola and Ann Chaplet. Benefits: Connections with directors in the history and musical genres will open gig opportunities to lower level actors. Extra comfort when auditions are not successful. 



Agencies will provide you with a list of open auditions. You can check for upcoming auditions/gigs from your phone or a computer by selecting “Check for Gigs” or by clicking on the clipboard icon in the career panel. A popup window will appear of the upcoming auditions. Available auditions will vary based on your Sim’s Talent Agency and Career Level. The Audition list will show the potential gig payout, the audition time, the gig time and the recommended skill. The gig payout is determined by your performance at the actual gig.

Each audition will have a recommended skill. Making sure your Sim meets this minimum skill level will boost your chances at a successful audition. When you’re Sim attends an audition they will go off to work for a couple of hours, similar to passive careers like the Criminal or Tech Guru career. If you pass your audition you Sim will be expected at the Studio at the gig start time. At that time, you’ll be given a choice to “Join” or “Send Alone”, similar to other active careers like the Scientist or Doctor career from the Get to Work EP.

You check the time of an upcoming audition or gig in your Sim’s career panel. If you ever want to cancel an upcoming audition or gig you can simply click the trash can icon in the career panel. Like other careers, you can find your performance bar in the career panel. This will let you monitor how close your Sim is to their next promotion. You’ll also notice the ideal mood for the Actor career is confident. Using a mirror to ‘Psych Self Up’ or a tub to ‘Take a Mud Bath’ (available if you own Spa Day) are a great way to give your Sim a confidence boost for their audition or a gig.


Acting Gigs

Congratulations, you passed your audition. Don’t get too excited, you have some work to do before your gig start time. You will have specific prep tasks for each gig. These are to be completed once you’ve passed the audition and before the gig start time. You can find these tasks in your Sim’s career panel. They can be anything from practicing a scene to researching an emotion or developing a skill. If you are unsure how to complete a task you can hover over the item for a hint.

Sometimes your prep task may be to get to know the director or your costars. To the left of the trash can icon (cancel gig) is an icon that looks like a small calendar and person. This is the ‘Invite Over Director & Co-Stars’ Icon, which will invite your Director & Co-Stars to your current location.

If you choose to join your Sim at their gig you’ll travel to the Plumbob Pictures Studio. Once there you’ll notice an event task panel in the upper left side of your screen. It looks similar to other active careers, such as the Doctor career from Get to Work, but has a couple special features.

Since acting gigs can start at random times you can find what time your work day ends at the top of the event task panel. Below that is the progress bar which will measure if your performance is a bronze, silver or gold performance. This ultimately determines your gig payout. Your event goal is to “Complete the Performance” and your work day will end shortly once this is completed.

Below the event goal you will see a list of tasks, usually beginning with “Get into Hair and Makeup” (unless you have the ‘Established Name’ perk). When you complete a task a new one may appear.

These are your pre-performance tasks and can be anything from rehearsing a scene with a Co-Star to asking the Director for notes. Once you have completed the Hair/Makeup and Costume tasks, the “Tell Director You Are Ready” task should appear. Completing this task will erase any other unfinished pre-performance tasks from the list and you’ll be presenting with performance tasks. Most pre-performance tasks are optional, but the more tasks you can complete, the better your ultimate performance score.


Audition/Gig List

There are four categories of acting gigs: commercials, daytime tv, primetime tv and movies. Not all gigs will available at the same time, you may need to wait for the next round of auditions if you want to try for a specific gig. You also may need to try a different talent agent since different agencies will offer different gigs.

Performing Scenes

Once you are ready to begin your performance the studio lights will dim and any Co-Stars will make their way to the stage. You’ll notice several “X” marks on the stage. These represent the different scenes for your performance. A smaller performance like a commercial may only have 3 scenes, while a movie performance could have closer to 8 scenes. You can check the event task panel for which scene to complete but the “X” marks are not labeled so this could be confusing in larger performances. What you want to do is look for the “X” that is slightly glowing. This is the hint for which scene should come next. Some scenes may not have an “X” and require you to click on an nearby object, like a pirate ship wheel or a hospital bed. When you click on the “X” or a prop, you’ll see any option for a “Safe” or “Risky” version of that scene. This is where your prep tasks from before the gig start time are important. A risky performance has a great chance of getting you to a gold performance score.

If you completed your prep tasks you should  succeed with any risky performance. If you fail at a risky performance then you could harm your chances at a gold performance score (and that larger gig payout). You can always stick with a safe performance and hope the boost from completing all the pre-performance task will earn you a high performance score. The choice is yours.

Once you complete all the scenes your performance will be complete. You’ll receive your final performance score of bronze, silver or gold. The higher your performance the higher the payout and the more fame you will earn. You’ll then be given a chance to go home or stay at the Studio.

If you choose to stay you’ll unlock build/buy mode for this lot. (As of writing this guide, you can make changes to the Studio in build/buy mode but any changes will not be saved for the next time. The entire lot resets at the beginning of a new acting gig. There is a special dressing room that appears when your Sim reaches level 4 in their acting career so I don’t know if that is causing a glitch.)




Celebrities and Fame





Become a Celebrity





Celebrity Interactions





Starlight Accolades





Reputation and Fame





Fame Perks

As a Sim increases their Celebrity Level, they’ll earn Fame Points. Fame Points can be used to purchase Fame Perks, which provide powerful benefits to celebrities, and unlock new behavior, new interactions, and new opportunities for Sims. By acquiring perks, you can drastically alter your Sim’s path to stardom with different paths to becoming famous, and ways to earn fame faster.

Most perks have requirements that must be satisfied before they can be purchased. Your Sim’s celebrity level will adjust which perks they’re allowed to purchase. More powerful perks require higher celebrity levels. To acquire higher tier perks, the lower tier perks in the same column must first be purchased. Some perks even require that your Sim’s reputation be at a certain level before they can be purchased.

Fame Quirks

As a Sim increases their Celebrity Level, they drift further from normal life. At certain levels, Sims will gain new Quirk Slots, which can be filled with Quirks based on the behavior they engage in. Once acquired, Quirks may be removed by using the Celestial Crystal Crown, or by drinking the Quirk-B-Gone reward potion. You are not able to permanently remove a quirk slot from a Sim unless you quit the spotlight completely.

Quirks and Triggers
No Touching!

• Touched by strangers with less Fame
Just because you're famous doesn't mean you're ok with the general public invading your personal space.
Vain Street

• Frequent use of Mirrors
Maintaining a gorgeous appearance is of peal importance to celebrities…you never know when a paparazzi is going to pop out and snap a shot after all. This can lead to an inflated ego, and mirrors become a necessary crutch to constantly reaffirm that, yes…they’re still gorgeous. Admitting their own reflection can instill a celebrity with confidence, but they also become anxious if they’re separated from a mirror for too long.
Juice Enthusiast

• Frequently drinking Juice
Celebrities that are Juice Enthusiasts find themselves always wanting a drink of juice. If they don’t regularly drink juice, they’ll slip into foul moods, and will have a difficult time raising their Fun.
Emotion Bomb

• Becoming Very Sad/Angry
When the world rotates around you, it’s easy to become the emotional center of your own universe. For these celebrities, anything angering will cause them to fly off the handle and become enraged. Anything that saddens them requires the world to stop as they struggle to process their feelings. These intense outbursts don’t last long…After working through an emotional meltdown, they’re back to acting as if nothing was ever wrong at all.
Paparazzi Darling

• Being Friendly to Paparazzi
Some celebrities simply adore being in front of the camera, and the paparazzi are happy to oblige. Celebrities that are Paparazzi Darlings will attract bigger crowds of paparazzi, they’ll love having their photo taken, and they may even earn positive reputation when their picture is taken.
Refined Palate

• Eating “Excellent” Quality Meals
With fame comes fortune, and with fortune comes an expectation for finer things in life. Such is the burden that some celebrities must endure. For these Sims, once they’ve gained a taste for the finest foods, there’s simply no going back to just any old meal. These celebrities will find eating food that’s of “Excellent” quality most delightful, but they’ll turn their nose up in discomfort when forced to swallow that’s “Normal”, or – dare I say – “Poor”.
“Fan” Mail

• Celebrity socialization with fans
Celebrities who open themselves up to the adoring public are occasionally in for a rude awakening, when they discover that not every Sim is a true fan. In reality, there are some Sims who actively dislike celebrities, and will make it a priority to ensure the target of their ire receives frequent “gifts” in the mail. Try not to take it personally.
A Serious Actor

• Completing Dramatic Gigs
The acting studio is not the place for pranks or jokes, especially for an actor trying to evoke the right emotion during a dramatic scene. Such behavior frays on the concentration of actors, and eventually they snap. Anytime anyone attempts something funny or mischievous with a serious actor, they’ll show their anger instead of cracking a smile. They’ll hold everyone accountable for their professionalism on set, and anyone that steps out of line can expect to be the subject of a furious rant.
A Stan!

• Signing autographs for fans
Some fans take fandom a bit too seriously. These misguided Sims are known among celebrities as “stans”. Thankfully stans don’t mean you any harm, they just have a burning desire for you to know that you’re the center of their universe. Their behavior manifests itself in a variety of ways, from attempting to chat with you while out in public, to showing up at your residence and digging through your trash cans. Should you choose to invite one into your home, keep a close eye on them…They’ll always look for a chance to swipe a souvenir from their favorite superstar.
Public Number

• Using Social interactions on the phone
Celebrities with the Public Number Quirk have has their phone number leak, and must endure receiving text messages from various Sims each day. Some Sims are just thrilled to have the chance to contact someone famous. Other Sims are quick to express their dislike of the rich and famous. Regardless, everyone has an opinion…and they’re eager to share it.
Phone Fanatic

• Using a cell phone for entertainment
Celebrities who are Phone Fanatics are addicted to checking their phones. Whenever they have spare time, you’ll likely find them tapping away at their phone’s screen. Occasionally, they’ll become Tense if they haven’t been entertained by their phone recently.

Brushes With Fame

• Touching Celebrities with more Fame
For some celebrities, hobnobbing with the rich and famous becomes a way of life. They get sad if they spend too long among the general public, separated from other celebrities that they can actually relate to. They find themselves drawn to increasingly famous Sims, always seeking out of the companionship and personal touch of those who are – at minimum – equally as famous as themselves.



Del Sol Valley (New World)

A densely populated city brimming with opportunities to make it big! If you can make it in Del Sol Valley you can make it anywhere. From the lavish living in The Pinnacles to the booming nightlife of Starlight Boulevard this world has everything going for it.

Del Sol Valley is divided into three neighborhoods: Mirage Park, The Pinnacles, and Starlight Boulevard. There is also an additional 4th lot called Plumbob Pictures, but Sims will have to excel in the acting career to access this lot. More on that later.

The Mirage Park district contains reasonably priced homes, The Pinnacles is fit for the rich and famous containing the most expensive homes with views, and Starlight Boulevard is where all the action is, including exclusive night clubs and celebrity sightings.

Plumbob Pictures (Hidden)

Get Famous includes a 4th “neighborhood” in Del Sol Valley called Plumbob Pictures. This lot is visible on the right side of the world map, but is only accessible to Sims who take on the Acting Career. To access Plumbob Pictures, Sims will need to successfully pass a “gig audition” which will grant them the ability to access and film a gig at the studio.

When the time comes to go to work, you can follow your Sim to the studio for filming. Once there, Sims can go through the motions of preparing for their role, and then hop on stage to film. Sims can stay on the lot after filming to chat with co-workers and explore the lot.

❗ Once a Sim is on the lot, they can stay indefinitely. Keep in mind that the interior of the studio will change layouts based on the type of gig Sims choose to audition for.

❗ This lot can be edited when Sims are visiting, but it will not stay as you leave it. If your Sim books another gig audition and passes, the lot will automatically change to the proper set needed for filming on gig day at the studio.

There are tons of auditions waiting for Sims at Plumbob Pictures. To learn more about the acting career, be sure to check out our Acting Career section of the guide.



Interactive Objects

The Sims 4 Get Famous adds a variety of new interactive objects. These objects allow for new game play not previously available in game. Details on these objects below.


Celestial Crystal Crown

The Celestial Crystal Crown is a new object that serves as a motive, skill, and fame boost for Sims. The crown can be purchased in buy mode for §100 simoleons, and used by Sims aged Child and older. Some of the crystals even provide Sims with temporary traits.

❗ Wearing the crystal crown will give Sims the “Fashion Faux Pas” moodlet for 4 hours. They can counter this by purchasing the “Shameless” Reward Trait.

The main use of this object is to mount crystals that Sims collect or purchase in the game. This allows Sims to take advantage of a variety of crystal effects. They’ll also be able to mount rare crystals on the crown to remove Fame Quirks.

❗ Crystals have Broken, Low, Medium, and High Power Levels. The lights on all sides of the crown will indicate their power level. (Grey, Red, Orange, and Green)
❗ To remove Fame Quirks, Sims will have to mount a rare crystal. This will automatically remove a quirk of your choice, but it will also instantly break the crystal.
❗ When Sims wear the celestial crystal crown, a crown specific self-interaction appears when clicking on them. From there they can select the “Mount Crystal”, “Remove Crystal”, and “Remove Quirk” options.
