Any actor who dreams of stardom knows they need a great agent.
An agent is an actor’s representative and go-between. They look out for and speak on the actor’s behalf with regard to potential projects and roles. The agent also discusses and works-out the details of potential offers.
Sometimes an agent arranges meetings to introduce the actor to casting directors, executives, producers, and other individuals who make decisions about roles. This is so that when certain opportunities arise, those individuals think of the actor.
Should An Actor First Find an Agent Before You Look for Auditions?
No. An actor first needs to land roles before an agent will represent you. An agent makes money when the actors they represents land roles, so they, naturally, only want to sign actors with proven records of success. And, in some cases, someone they greatly trusts highly recommends.
How Do You Get an Agent to Notice You?
Actors need to put themselves out there if they ever want an agent to sign them. They do that by acting in plays, short films, student films, and taking classes. Such allows agents to notice them and/or allows them to make connect with individuals who personally know agents.
In essence, most of the actors who successfully sign with agents are the ones who found ways to be signed. This statement was not meant to be cheeky. It meant that some of the actors who actively look for and pursues ways to gain agents have a much better chance of having an agent sign them.
