Because of the extreme competition in our screen industry and the difficult task of getting auditions in a very competitive environment, we would ask you this year to choose to up your game by providing your Agents with new headshots, updated CVs and keep your acting (and other) skills fresh as well as your appearance. By doing this you will be in a far better position to be considered for jobs and for us to put you forward for them.
Also, another very serious request - and one that is constantly being asked but not everyone adhers to - will you please let us know when you are going away. It takes a moment to text or email us dates when you won't be able to audition and means a lot to us so we don't miss out on opportunities, nor do other actors. Don't forget that unless you get work, your Agent works for you for nothing and we rely on commission, if we keep losing out on audition slots because we put actors forward who aren't around then not only do we (and YOU) look unprofessional to Casting Directors but it means loss of income for all concerned and other actors miss out on auditions too.
We choose to submit those first who keep us uppermost in their minds. The same is true of the Casting Directors when selecting those to audition. That's the reality of it.
It's a new year with new choices - we'd love you to choose to keep us in the loop and yourself at the top of your chosen profession!
Happy New Year
