Does an Actor really need an Agent?

Starting in a unique field like preforming arts, it can be difficult to know what information is accurate and how to get started in such a competitive field.

Like Models, there is much out dated advice that is on the internet. Many actors think that the only way to become a success is to land a talent agency.

Regardless of your look, a talent agency doesn’t sign an actor because they are charming or even because they are a superb entertainer; an actor gets signed to a talent agency because the agent knows they will make money off of the actor from bookings. For an agency to take 10-20% commission, you have to have a success rate of bookings!

Unless you are a published actor, don’t expect to get signed right away to these major agencies. Landing acting auditions is the first thing an agent will want to see on your resume so focus on castings rather then representation! 

Finding auditions, especially in New York City, can be done without the help of an agency however, it is not easy to find castings that are open to new models or actors.

Latitude Talent helps connect Models and actors with the tools, resources and casting opportunities to help talent, regardless of their experience level, by getting exposure on the same platforms used by major agencies and casting professionals. Our talent have successfully booked projects and been connected to casting from HBO, VH1 Networks and many more.
