HOLLYWOOD ACTOR AGENTS (Hit the Ground Running: 18 Agents)
by Dov S-S Simens on August 18, 2015
LA TALENT AGENTS & SAG-AFTRA
Hit the ground running: If you are coming to LA and want to be a professional actor then hit-the-ground-running.
Have your headshot ready (it will change), get a list of acting teachers, find a place to live (Culver City, Burbank, Park La Brea, North Hollywood, etc.) where a 2-bedroom with a roommate costs $2,200, line up your waiter gig (doing Uber or Lyft is better), and get your headshot to each and every one of the agents/agencies.
You can get a list of licensed talent agents by simply walking into SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild merged with Association of Film Television & Radio Artists) office and simply ask for one, if you phone (323-954-1600) get ready for voice mail and attitude.
ADDRESS: SAG-AFTRA, 5757 Wilshire Blvd, 7/F, Los Angeles, CA 90036
Now, once you have the list of talent agents, take your headshot (I assume you’ve printed 100 at a minimum), tape on the back your Name, Phone # & Address (you’ll get a new headshot, once you get a talent agent, for they want to create you and this one will have your name & number as a permanent part of the photo) then get in your car (yes, you must have a car in LA especially if being an Uber driver) and just drive from one agency to the other and drop off your headshot….
While at it, if you have a list of Casting Directors, drop your headshot off at their offices also.
