I have an agent so trust me this answer is true. You can look into them on the Internet, type in agencies on google.

I suggest The Osbrink Agency, who I find very good: one does not pay the agent regularly but for every job you get, one pays them 20 percent of what one makes. The way and how much you pay the agent may vary depending on which agency you go for.

You can find an agent on the internet. Send them your resume and picture (your picture really should be a professionally taken picture by a professional photographer). If they are interested, they will call you in for an audition, and if they're not, then you may have to try another one- if you are really interested in acting pursue your dream!

Remember, act because you love it, not because you want to be a superstar.

Answer

In reference to the answer above - agents get 10%. Managers get 15%. That is industry standard. Anyone who wants 20% is not worth it. They're taking you for a ride.

Another way to get an agent is by getting a manager first. Part of their job is getting you an agent because they are not legally allowed to contact casting directors, but agents can. Managers can talk to producers and studio execs, but not casting, and they aren't allowed to negotiate your deals, so an agent is necessary. To get a manager, you do the same thing you would for an agent (see above, and if you have something on disc to send them, do that), plus take acting lessons from a reputable acting coach that also does showcases. Actors who do showcases on their own don't attract managers, but name coaches do. You can also take a "class" with casting directors who will give you scenes to perform and give you notes. How you incorporate their notes into your performance tells them whether you can take direction or not and if the casting director likes you, they may call you for an upcoming role on whatever project they are working on.

SUB AGENT.--------------Section 191 of Indian Contract Act 1872 defines that "a sub-agent is a person employed by, and acting under the control of, the original agent in the business of the Agency." A sub-agent may be a properly appointed one or an improperly appointed one. Where an agent, having authority to do so, appoints a sub-agent, he is known as a sub-agent properly appointed (sec. 192.) Where an agent without authority appoints a sub-agent, he is called a sub-agent improperly appointed. ( sec. 193.)When a sub-agent is properly appointed, he can represent the principal as regards to third parties. There is no privity of contract between the sub-agent and the principal. The agent would be responsible to the principal for the acts of the sub-agent. In case of a fraud or willful wrong, the sub-agent is also directly responsible to the principal.When the sub-agent is improperly appointed, the principal is not bound by the acts of the sub-agent. The agent would be responsible to the principal and third parties.SUBSTITUTED AGENT--------------------------A "Co-agent" or a "substituted Agent" is a person who is appointed by the agent to act for the principal in the business of agency with the consent of the principal.Section 194 enacts, "where an agent holding an express or implied authority to name another person to act for the principal, names another person accordingly, he is not a sub-agent, but a substituted agent for the principal"

Sub-agent and substituted agent: The general rule is that an agent cannot delegate his authority and appoint another agent. (Delegatus non potest delegare). An agent being delegate cannot transfer his authority or duties to another. As per Section 190, an agent cannot lawfully employ another to perform acts which he has expressly or impliedly undertaken to perform personally unless by the ordinary custom of trade a sub-agent may or from the nature of the agency, the agent must be appointed. According to Section 191, a "sub-agent" is a person employed by and acting under the control of the original agent in the business of agency. The relation of the sub-agent and the original agent is as between themselves that of the agent and the principal. Where a sub-agent is properly appointed, the principal is so far as regards third parties represented by the sub-agent and is bound by and responsible for acts as if he were an agent originally appointed by the principal. The agent is responsible to the principal for the acts of the sub-agent. The sub-agent is responsible for his acts to the agent, but not to the principal except in case of fraud or wilful wrong. (Section192) There is no privity of contract between the sub-agent and the principal and, hence, sub-agent is not directly responsible to the principal except in cases of fraud or wilful wrong. If the sub-agent is properly appointed, the principal is liable to third parties for the acts of the sub-agent. If the sub-agent is appointed without proper authority, the principal is not represented by or responsible for the acts of the sub-agent and sub-agent is not responsible to the principal. As between the agent and the sub-agent, the relationship is that of the principal and agent and the agent is responsible for the acts of such sub-agent and both to the principal and to third parties (Section 193). Substituted agent: Where an agent holding an express or implied authority to name another person to act for the principal in the business of the agency has named another person accordingly, such person is not a sub-agent, but an agent of the principal for such part of the business of agency as is entrusted to him. (Section194). Where the agent has authority to appoint an agent and the person so appointed is in the nature of a substitute for the original agent, the contract arises between the principal and the substitute and the substituted agent becomes responsible to the principal for the due discharge of the duties as if he is appointed by the principal himself. According to Section 195, in selecting substituted agent for his principal an agent is bound to exercise the same amount of discretion as a man of ordinary prudence would exercise in his own case; and if he does so, he is not responsible to the principal for acts or negligence of the substituted agent so selected.
