Actors share more agent stories with me, than about any other topic.
My Actor Friends, Myself: We’ve all had both good and bad experiences with different agents.
Most novice actors enter The Business with this same agent fantasy…
Then there’s the middle ground. The Purgatory-like hell.
It’s extremely helpful when an actor shares her or his experience, with other actors.
Simply, you could save lots of other actors a similar heartache.
Seriously: Some acting careers never get back in the game…
…It can be very difficult to get another agent.
If an actor is able to get meetings with other agencies, the first thing the interviewing agency will ask the actor is what have they been doing lately.
Translated into English, from Hollywood Talent Agent-ese means:
“How much acting work have you done within the last few months?”
They don’t want to hear the actor blame their previous agent. Uh uh.
They want to see the commission money.
