    Im in that catch 22 position, where i dont have an agent (believe me im trying) and the big companies wont entertain my applications, because of it!

    Highly frustrating.

    I got a role off my own back on EE. It is possible. You just need to find a route in that's not obvious.

    Hello Alice,

    What do you mean by EE?

    Ashley I think she means Eastenders. The thing with shows like that and Holby City is that the casting directors meet an absolute multitude of actors through workshops, agents and general contacts. I mean quite frankly pushing them isn't gonna do you any favours but it does put you in sight whenever they release a brief matching the description.

    They switch around the casting directors every couple of months between Eastenders, Casualty and Doctors just to make things a tad interesting.

    I would recommend getting a copy of contacts, checking IMDB and cross referencing or you could be really cheeky and just call the BBC and ask for the names of the people in the casting department.

    99% of it is by invite! My epps on EE and Holby were just that at the end of the day.....they like to know and trust the agent too of course. Good reel heps massivly. As has been said...actors writing in has a very low rate of sucsess generally. They are innundated.

    Hi

    I recently did a couple of Eastenders eps and was asked to come in by the CD via my agent.

    The casting director was ROWLEY Beckley (Not Roland!!!)

    Good luck anyway!

    As I recently took part in a Casting Directors' workshop with him, the EE CD is Roland Beckley (his friends call him Rowley for short). Just thought I'd clear that one up.

    Cheers. Sue

    Cool

    I must be one if his friends then!

    He introduced himself as Rowley to me. Thought it was an unusual name!

    Thanks for the update Sue

    All the best x
