Getting an agent

Try to get as many paid acting jobs as possible. The paid work is what will get an agent's attention.

Call around to see which local agent takes new actors (and see which is the most helpful on the phone). Then make an appointment with a local acting agency that takes new talent and see if someone will talk with you about what you need to do to get prepared for them.

Word of warning: no not do an agent that requires a fee. Good agents only get paid when you get work. The exception is buying headshots, etc.

Here is a list of SAG approved agents. The best agents will be on this list: http://www.sagaftra.org/agency-relations/sag-franchised-agents
