What agencies should I apply to for my acting/modeling career in NYC?

I am 16 years old and new to the business and I wanted to know what agencies should I check out. I know I need a casting agency but I need specific names. I am looking for something in my age group.

  • Cogito:

    First decide if you want to be a model or an actor. They’re totally different careers.
    Modelling is all about looks, but no talent or skill is required.
    If you want to be an actor, no agent would take you unless you’ve had years of training and loads of experience. Most good acting classes tell you all about this, so I’d suggest that you get into a good one, and start building up a good resume.
    At 16, you’ll be competing with adults, many of whom will have graduated from top drama schools and who have dozens of stage plays and films on the resumes – yours would have to be at least as good as theirs for you to get any auditions.
    Good luck!

    New York is one of the toughest places in the world to get an agent for acting. They won’t even look at you unless you have studied at a top school AND have years of experience. I have actor friends in NY who have gone to Stella Adler and HB Studio and have been doing off- and off-off-Broadway theater for years and still can’t get an agent. One friend was acting for almost 10 years before she got an agent and that’s only because she was lucky enough to have her one-woman show picked up by the NY Fringe Festival, the NY Times and Time Out both gave it a great review, then she was contacted by an agent. But she had been trying for 10 years to get an agent and was even a member of several well respected theater companies in NY

    For modeling, these are the top agencies for men. Most will sign men age 16 and up
