    come up is okay

    An opportunity to act in a film has come (up)/arisen. I should not miss it.

    It's fine in speech, but as written it needs a punctuation change.

    Re: come up

    Barb_D is right. It should be an opportunity (except in the South, where they say a hour).

    Re: come up

    svartnik, I believe I started mine before you posted yours, but I posted mine after yours was posted.

    Your advice was, of course, right on.
