Is it important to have an agent?
I know some incredible freelance actors. They are organised, proactive and great at writing emails! Being an actor without an agent is definitely possible, and in some cases, preferable. However, I would always encourage actors to seek representation from a reputable agent. Having an agent doesn’t mean you can’t be proactive and find your own opportunities, you can still do that, and should.
Having an agent means you have another person on your side. Agents have established contacts over several years and can get you access to auditions that you simply can’t find on your own.
