Jessica Wolff: An up-coming Finnish artist
Finding an agent who works hard for you is imperative. Some will disagree and say this is situational, but if your agent has strong relationships with casting directors (CDs) you will go out on far more auditions than those who don’t. Agents often attend drama showcases and make regular theatre trips on the lookout for clients, but you can’t rely on being found on your own. You will need to be proactive about inviting them to shows you’re in, or emailing when you’re in an episode requesting they tune in, or asking for a meeting via their assistants. However, as with everything, there’s a fine line between being proactive and pestering people – if they’re interested, they will let you know.
