Issue: How to get in the industry as a foreign actor
Convener(s): Jean Paul Dal Monte
Summary of discussion, conclusions and/or recommendations:
- Find an Agent
- Sell your “diversity” your “Foreignness” as an asset not competing for british roles
- Try to break, to breach the rigidity of the cliché’ of Italian, French etc. giving the double choice between the stereotype and the “foreign” but versatile type of actor
- If the market is still and there are no funds, better do something on your own better than stay waiting. For example, that’s what many actors do in Italy.
- If you have your agent in your own country, it’s useful asking him for links and connections with UK agents
