Actors may choose to work with several agents, often representing different aspects of their careers (i.e., one agent for Principal Work, one for Commercial Work, another for Print Work). If you sign up with multiple agents, please be certain that they communicate with each other. We suggest that you sign a one- year non-exclusive contract with any agent or manager. If you are able to travel, we recommend that you look for representation in London or Los Angeles.
You need to select an agent or manager--whichever is right for you. You can do so by simply sending out your picture and resume to all the agents/managers in your area. They will call you back if they are impressed with your picture and interested in representing you. Every major city has well-established talent agencies and management firms. Contact a few different agencies/managers and find out what they require. The key to success is retaining an agent/manager who is well-established and experienced. We advise you to work under a non-exclusive 1-2 year contract in order to make certain your agent/manager performs professionally.
