Acting FAQ's

Frequently asked Acting questions we get here in the Face HQ

Do I have to be on Spotlight to be an actor? 
If you want to be taken seriously as a professional actor then Spotlight is definitely a requirement. For roles in TV, Film & Theatre, casting directors will not consider you if you are not submitted through Spotlight. Different rules apply for different age groups so please see the Spotlight for the specifics - Click here

Do I need professional headshots?
Yes! Your headshot is the first thing the casting director is going to see when you are submitted for a role, so you must invest in top quality professional headshots. 

Do I need a showreel?
Yes. Sometimes casting directors book actors just from looking at their showreel. BUT, always remember, it is quality not quantity. It is better to have a 20 second showreel from a scene where your acting is amazing than a 2 minute showreel of work that isn’t so good. 

Can I have multiple agencies?
No. We represent actors exclusively.

If I’ve got a performing arts degree do I still need to train / attend acting classes?
Yes. As an actor, it is always important to continue practicing & developing your craft.

Our Background Artists on ITV's new drama

Some of you may already be hooked on ITV's new six-part drama 'Deep Water' adapted from the Windermere series of novels by critically-acclaimed author Paula Daly.
Set against the picturesque backdrop of Lake Windermere, Deep Water follows the lives of three “complex and vibrant” women, each trying to do their best for their families, but facing “tough choices with difficult and often messy repercussions.” The connection between these women is their similarly-aged children – and meetings at the school gates.
Last September we had lots of our background artists work on the new ITV drama filmed in Windermere, so make sure you keep an eye out. Well done Bianca Rudman, Tony Hannan, Harry Knight, Sam Bolton, Amber Lemons, Samantha Dymock & our actor Amy Harvey who had a walk on role.

We are also proud to share Thomas Sanderson are the sponsors of 'Deep Water' and you will find our very own Sally Squance in the advert - well done Sally!

5 Tips for every Actor

5 invaluable tips for your acting career

Our Casting & Acting division has been growing massively. We have lots of amazing talent on our books and our actors and background artists have secured and auditioned for roles in Ackley Bridge, Eastenders, Emmerdale, Peaky Blinders, Last Tango in Halifax, The Bay and the next Marvel feature film to name a few! 

We regularly attend Agent Panels in acting schools to scout new talent and next month we are holding an Acting Workshop within our background division to find some hidden talent for possible representation on our Acting Division. 

As we understand acting can be a difficult career choice. We had a chat this week with our Acting Division to give all you wonderful actors out there some of our invaluable tips that we hope will help you in your career.  

1. Your Showreel 
Showreel’s are an important element of your CV as you want to show off your acting ability to casting directors and to potential agents you wish to seek representation from.

Your showreel should be sharp & snappy and last no longer than 3 minutes. The most important things you need to remember when creating a showreel is to have variety! You will be getting put forward for a variety of roles and you need to show you can play different characters. If you don’t have work material to make a showreel, there are companies who specialise in making showreels where they will write you different scripts, film and edit a professional showreel for you. 

2. Self-tapes
Self-tapes are growing very popular in the world of casting and are great because it means not having to pay and spend time travelling to an audition. You also get the comfort of doing it in your own home, or a space you feel comfortable, which is why you should make the most of it! Self-tapes are a pre-audition and we get actors on a weekly basis securing roles from self-tape auditions. When making a self-tape the key things to remember are; introduce yourself, make sure there is no background noise, ensure there is good lighting, include everything that is in the brief & send it back to your agent before the deadline in case there are any amendments needed. 

3. Headshots 
First impressions are very important in the world of casting and if you don’t have a decent, professional headshot your CV & showreel won’t even get a look in by the casting director. Invest by getting professional headshots taken by an industry photographer who knows what they’re doing. Your agent will know who is best suited for you so contact them to get recommendations. 

Always remember to keep your headshots up to date, if you change your appearance like dying or cutting your hair – get new headshots! Your agent and casting directors need to see a true representative of what you look like. 

4. Communication 
It’s very important to keep your agent up to date on your availability, if you do not book out and your agent books you on a job or a casting it looks unprofessional on everyone’s part to cancel, therefore always let your agent know when you’re not available. 

It’s also important to let your agent know what you want from your career and what you are comfortable doing, for example; if you can’t swim, this is something you would need to let your agent know so they don’t put you forward for jobs that involves swimming or if you’re allergic to anything, don’t want to smoke for a role, not comfortable doing nudity etc.… these are just a few examples of what you need to communicate to your agent. 

Keep your agent informed of any skills you have, any new training you’ve been doing and any sport you play etc. This is very beneficial for your agent to know in case a role comes in that requires an actor to have a certain skill. 

5. Be proactive 
Acting can be a difficult job with a lot of waiting for the phone to ring, that is why you, yourself, should stay proactive. Examples of how to do this can be; attend acting classes/courses, network with people in the industry, take the odd un-paid bit of work here and there to expand your credits and develop your craft.

Josh & Alana are back in town after filming in TEXAS!

Our real-life model couple Josh Oxley-Adams & Alana Elliott jetted off this month to the United States of America where they spent a week in Fort Worth, Texas filming an exciting online mini-series called 'Lucky in Love' with Chief Productions. The video will be out in October & we can't wait to see & share with you what they got to up. In the meantime, we caught up with Josh & Alana to do a Q&A about their exciting trip in Texas.

J&A tell us about the audition process for ‘lucky in love’ & what it entailed?
For the first audition, we had to do a self-tape where we just had to say a bit about ourselves & show our personality, then we had to do a video call with the producer & director & had an informal chat. For the final stage of the audition process we had to meet with the producer & director in Manchester at Chief Productions for a Q&A – it was like the Mr & Mrs TV show, we had such good fun! We also randomly had to wrap a chair in wrapping paper in under a minute, which we did VERY badly!

What is the concept of the mini-series ‘Lucky in Love’?
The series itself is to promote people to visit Fort Worth as a holiday destination, so we spent a week there seeing what it had to offer & doing loads of amazing activities whilst being filmed, only the twist was everything on the trip was decided with a flip of a coin... it made things very exciting! 

What was your favourite part of the trip?
For both of us it had to be horse riding… we went to a ranch & went on a horse riding trip through the Texas countryside with a real-life cowboy – we felt like we were in a western movie! The entire trip was incredible, by far our favourite job we’ve both ever done & so amazing that we got to do it together! Massive thank you to our Face family!

Why portfolio updates are so important

As a model it's important to show versatility in your book which is why it's always important to update your book and show you can do more than one look. 

We have a wide range of clients and jobs vary from posing as a carpet fitter to doing a fashion shoot for a handbag brand and so it's important to show clients you can be whatever they want you to be.

It's also important if you have a dramatic change in your appearance, say if you change your hairstyle, to get new pictures so clients can see what you look like to date. 

We always help and advise our models on what they may need in their book and which photographers are best to capture this look. Being a model is a career and you need to be willing to invest it, test prices vary depending on the photographer & makeup artist but if you pay out for a test you may earn that back from one job and get many more as a result of your new pictures. 

Here are some portfolio updates for our models Fiona Campbell, Paul Kerry, Kate Hemming & Tom Coulston.
