I did what you said and I got two interviews with two agents! Thank you! Sorry but can I ask you how do I prepare to go meet the agent? What do I have to do?

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.

I want to say you changed my life. I want to be an actress so bad, but i began losing motivation when I couldn't figure out what to do. And then I found you! Thanks to you, I'm taking my first acting classes next month! Yippee!
