Told them you’re keen for the work. Now you’re waiting by the phone. Waiting... waiting.... waiting... Where are the jobs? Why aren’t you in demand by now? Haven’t you done everything they asked? When you are an Actor, Model, Musician or Performing Artist, working with an Agent to build your career can be a thrilling ride.

I finally found an Agent I could work with and stayed with them for many years. You’ve heard of the 80/20 rule? Well I was in that top 20% that got 80% of the work. I was one of the Elite. The sort of person Advertising Agencies rang to book and didn’t even offer an audition to other actors. The sort of person who was sat down with a glass of water and told I could do better by a Casting Director because she “knew” this was a job for me. I did very well. Then I was an Agent myself co-founding a company that represented artists in 7 cities over 2 countries for 15 years. So I’ve been on both sides of the fence.
