Agents help actresses with business-related tasks like scheduling auditions, negotiating contracts and sending out resumes. This allows actresses to spend more time at auditions or training to improve their skills. Experienced agents also have relationships with casting directors, which can increase the likelihood of getting auditions for desired acting roles. Before choosing an agent, research each one to see who may be the best fit for you. You’ll want to know how many clients the agent has and how much personal attention each client receives, as well as the agent’s reputation in the acting industry.
