Are you looking for a reputable Acting Agency in Manchester UK? Here is a list of some of the most respected Agents currently operating in the Manchester region. Most of the companies listed below represent purely trained, professional actors with previous paid acting credits. If you are just starting out, you may wish to sign up with a Supporting Artists Agency and/or join a reputable Drama School or Actor Training Company whilst building your experience. Another opportunity to gain an Agent with little experience is by signing up to a good talent showcase or stage production with a known company.
Before applying to an Agent you should check: that their books are ‘open’ for new submission, their submission preference (email or post), that there is a gap in their client list for you (age/gender/style/skills/ethnicity etc).
TIPS: NEVER sign up to an agency asking for upfront fees for representation. Agents earn their wage by taking a 10-20%* cut of your wage for any jobs they assist you in securing. However, it is common for Agents to request new headshots and often recommend a photographer – but remember that you are always free to shop around for a better deal. It is always advisable to have your highly important headshots taken by a professional headshot photographer.
