    Does it mean my career is over? I have been having trouble finding a new agency and agent.

    Absolutely nothing happens . Life goes on and you learn to represent yourself . You are in charge of your own destiny rather than someone else taking 20% of your money .

    Remember not all agents are created equal. Some will be superb , some will fail to represent you at all . Telling you that they have put you forward for jobs , when you really have no idea if that have or not .

    My mate had an agent who was full of excuses , but willing to take a fee for work my mate actively sought himself .

    So , your on Mandy , search for the jobs which you believe you can do justice to . Search spotlight if you are on the books . Check out star now . Search Facebook acting groups for upcoming castings .

    A good agent is a valuable tool , but not the be all and end all . You have a mobile phone and multiple platforms to search for your own work . The world , as they say , is your lobster .

    Jeffrey Dean Morgan had been getting work, then got dumped by his agent right before getting the "big break." Did they give you a reason? Maybe they already had your "type" represented in the roster with no reflection on your skills. People with agents still have to hustle on their own. This way, you keep your own commission.

    Was your agent getting you a lot of work? Having an agent can be important as they submit you for some jobs we cannot without one, but still.plenty of work. Keep plugging
