Tips for Actors from Agent Julie Martin

Renowned agent Julie Martin is the Agency Director at BMG Atlanta, a national, full-service Agency representing Models and Talent. With over two decades of industry experience, Julie has world class expertise across the TV, film, commercial and fashion industries.

Julie hosted 1:1 coaching sessions with Mandy members, and these sessions were a chance for actors to gain expert advice and feedback on their headshots, showreel, cover letters, resume and an understanding of how they can secure representation.

Here is a top tip Julie gave to our members:

  • Never stop honing your craft. Even if you are booking, keep up with your classes. This is what will set you apart from the others and you will never lose your passion and your talent.

Our members loved the opportunity to chat with Julie and here are a few testimonials from them:

  • “The session was excellent, transparent, and beneficial! Julie was welcoming, warm, and transparent. I enjoyed meeting her and look forward to a future encounter. The positively reinforcing recognition/emphasis she shared regarding my commitment to training was useful. Julie highlighted the importance/marketability of illustrating more variation of character/looks in headshots. Thank you for the chance to meet with her.” - Oroma Igwe
  • “The session went very well! I was able to have Julie review my resume and headshots and give me feedback. I also performed a short monologue and received feedback. We had some time at the end for me to ask additional questions that I had as well. This session gave me some clarity and insight that I needed and also affirmed that I am on the right track and to just keep at it!” - Allison Blackman
