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.

UK Actor Union Offices Representatives

This page offers you a list of UK Actor Union offices and representatives. Equity is a UK-based Trade Union that represents performers, actors and creative artists from many different cultural industries. What's really important though is that you are ready to join an actor union. There are a few important things to take into consideration before you do, especially if you are at the beginning of your acting career OR if you haven't been working much as an actor. You might want to intensify your marketing efforts first, whether it be in pure actor promotion or by getting a talent agent or both. If you are not ready to join the union and you join anyway, you could end up losing money!

At the Equity website you are able to apply online or you can visit one of the offices and apply there:
