Frequently Asked Questions

tinypng Why are you called Access?
Have you noticed that most agents like to use their own names to trade under? We believe that it is our clients names that should be ‘in lights’ . Therefore we chose a name that was easy to remember and a name that would place us at the top of alphabetic sorting (Aardvark Associates didn’t quite have the same ring).

tinypng Are you are co-operative agency?

tinypng What areas do your clients work in?
We supply artistes to all sectors of the industry. We do not typecast our clients and will send them for work in all sectors they are suitable for.

tinypng How would you describe yourselves?
A modern agency for a modern industry. Small enough to know our talent personally and take care of them, yet big enough to make things happen.
tinypng I've sent loads of letters to other agents without reply, how do I get an agent?
Be you. Be brilliant. Be positive. You've chosen a difficult industry but it can be amazing with the right attitude. We can't take everybody that applies but we will definitely consider you if you meet the criteria below. And we will always reply.

tinypng I’d like to apply to the agency – who should I contact?
You may apply to us at any time but please bear in mind the following: We will only consider representation if:

  • You are a NEW graduate (or about to be) from a recognised Training School and we can see you in performance soon.
  • You have appeared in a MAJOR National tour or West End production.
  • You have appeared in a MAJOR Television or Film production and have footage we can view.
  • You are an Actor-Musician and play at least two instruments to a professional standard.

Please note that we do not represent extras.

Unfortunately, due to the amount of requests we receive, we cannot accept applications that do not meet the above criteria. If you do meet the above criteria and would like to apply for representation, please send a recent photograph and CV preferably by email (post is fine but it will take longer for us to process your application). Address your application to NEW CLIENTS MANAGER, you do not need a name. We will respond to ALL applications providing they have a return email address or, if you send us hard copy then we will only be able to respond if you have enclosed a stamped self-addressed envelope. See our CONTACT US page for further details.
