I booked my first co-star without a theatrical agent. 😮
It’s true! No one was submitting me theatrically, but I had built a relationship with casting director Tannis Vallely through workshops and classes and she called me in for the sitcom 1600 Penn.
She then called me directly to tell me I had booked the part! The best part was I happened to be in my acting class at the time so all my actor pals got to celebrate my first co-star booking with me!
Moral of the story: Don’t ever let lack of representation hold you back! Build relationships with casting directors and other people creating entertainment.
Show people your good work and you will work.
You got this!
