大家好,

If I want to say: "when he was a child he wanted to work as a journalist, but now he works as an actor". I´m not pretty sure of the order before 的时候.

他小想当的时候记者,可是现在当男主角。 Ok, the second part is not difficult, I am quite interested in the first one.

多谢。

    The first part of the sentence is a mess; the second is not natural to native Chinese ears.
    The corrected version:
    他儿时想当记者,现在却当了演员。
