I Want An Agent! What Do I Do?
One of the first questions actors who are just starting out ask is: How do I get an agent? Well, we get into it in this week's episode. We talk about how to research, use your network and contact agents as well as what to do in the initial meeting you might have with one. We'd love to hear our listeners' stories about how they reached out to their agents or what their plan is to find an agent. Join in the conversation on our facebook page, on instagram or on Twitter!
