Who are the big four talent agencies?
When people in the entertainment industry think of the top movie talent agencies, they tend to think of the “Big 4”: Creative Artists Agency (CAA), William Morris Endeavor Agency (WME), United Talent Agency (UTA), and The Gersh Talent Agency. These are renowned as the best talent agencies in Los Angeles.
Can you have an acting agent in another country?
Just because you are an actor in Canada, Germany, Austria, Ireland, or Egypt does not mean that you can’t take the first step toward a Hollywood acting career. Ultimately you will need to be in Hollywood for auditions, but you can test the waters by doing a mailing to Talent Agents from anywhere in the world.
How do I join an acting agency?
Talk to your actor friends, talk to your teachers, read industry articles, use IMDbPro, and google local SAG-AFTRA agents. Make sure you’re submitting to acting agencies that represent your type. Familiarize yourself with the major agencies in your market.
