Hi Tony!
Most people don’t even take the time to tell a person how to reach their goal. I want to thank you for everything and for responding to my messages. Sometimes I just test people to see if they really care about my career and you do. You can continue to send me some tips on how I can accomplish my goals, because you inspire me a lot. Thank you for caring.

Exclusive Interview with
Talent Agent & Personal Manager Ingrid French

If you want to find regular work as an actor, having a talent agent to help you is a must. I'd like to share with you an interview I did with my agent in New York, Ingrid French of Ingrid French Management. She is unique in that while she is really a personal manager, she also functions as an acting agent and actually sends her actor clients out on auditions. She has great industry contacts, knows and has great relationships with all the top casting directors in the city and she is also well respected. If you are just beginning your search for an agent OR if you have been trying to find one for a long time and have had no success, then I strongly urge you read this entire interview. It will enlighten you and help you to maybe see why it is that you have been struggling. She will tell you a lot of things you need to know when looking for and contacting a talent agent. Read it all and you will be happy you did.

  1. You should also know how to go about contacting not only a talent agent, but industry professionals in general.. Have a method and a process. There is more than one way to do it, but this 12-Step Method is one that I used a few years ago to get a couple of agents to represent me in a short period of time.
  2. If you do use that method to find a talent agent who will represent you, you will want to be aware of how much that will cost you.
