What is Actors Access?

Actors Access is an online platform that allows actors to maintain profiles by uploading headshots, updating their resume, adding new skills and attributes, managing performance videos, and more.

Created in 2003, Actors Access functions like a virtual database between casting directors and aspiring actors looking for jobs. Casting Directors have the option to release Breakdowns to actors and receive submissions directly from them.

How does Actors Access work?

This is one of the few acting/casting-job websites that allow you to put up a profile without paying a monthly fee. The site will encourage you to sign up — for $68 annually — for a premium service. But you don’t need the premium service to put up headshots, a resume, and necessary profile information, including your age, height, and weight (which casting directors need).

What are the requirements to work for Actors Access?

  • Be over the age of 13;
  • if under 18, have a parent’s permission;
  • have photos and a desire to be an actor

For a one-time payment of $22 per minute, upload performance videos to add to your profile. When submitting on specific jobs, choose the video(s) you’d like to include to create a custom reel.

Have a particular skill that’s valuable to casting directors? Put it on video!

Pros of working for Actors Access

  • Working as an extra is a great way to learn the ropes on set.
  • Background extras get fed at least once during the shift.
  • Most of the filming takes place during the week with weekends off. This work is not set up as another job.
  • You will be in the same vicinity as some celebrities, you might even be able to have a slight chit chat back in forth, but this is not a meet and greet.

Cons of working for Actors Access

  • Lots of time sitting around, not getting as much done as you would like, especially if it involves trying to get your 10-year-old to get school work done.
  • Casting can be a time crunch. Stay on top of the breakdowns as they are released.
  • There’s always a chance that you will wait an entire day and not get used in a scene at all.
  • Some sets pay less for less time, more for less time, and less for more time.

Going online and using this app doesn’t mean that you can neglect your day-to-day efforts. Try to perfect your craft and evolve in your acting skills. Being an actor isn’t a regular 9-5 job, so you should spend most of your energy in developing into the best version of you, participating in workshops, landing a right agent, networking, and creating healthy professional interpersonal relationships. Your preparation is basically never over, and it shouldn’t feel like a burden.

Your networking will include Actors Access, IMDB Pro, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, specific databases and social events, and perhaps even the prestigious Screen Actors Guild. If you add your talent to this struggle, it’s a sure recipe. There is no way on Earth; you won’t secure the role of your dreams eventually.
