FAQs

When to Call the Agency

Remember, agencies deal in high call volume. The Cassidy Group requests that talent do not call in asking for work. To contact the agency about non-urgent matters, talent may send email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . If the question in the email has been covered on the website, there will be no response.

Talent are encouraged to email only if they have more or less general availability (not on a weekly basis), salary criteria changes, or any other significant changes.

When responding to a job-call, talent should call 1-902-492-4410.

So, you say you are an actor, So you say you are a model... and you are already being sent out to auditions and go-sees. As a talent and or model, you would have the most updated headshot/comp card along with a properly attached resume that reflects the agents' contact information, not any of your personal info. Sorry folks, just the way it goes when you work with an agent!

But going back for a moment to the original thought of headshots and resumes...YOU MUST HAVE ONE WITH YOU AT ALL TIMES!!!

This is not 5th grade. You cannot be a professional and not have your headshot and a resume, or comp card with you. Keep them in your trunk, your oversized pocketbooks, your back pocket. It doesn't matter. It only matters when clients call us back after your audition and or go-see and say, "Your talent is not that professional," they came in unprepared. No headshot, no comp, no attached resume. Now, how can you prepare yourself for the next possible audition and go-see you have coming up??

What do I need to know about child modeling?

A child breaking into the modeling or acting profession needs a good head shot, a parent to get them where they need to go and a quality agent who teaches them the business. Modeling school is not a requirement.

How can a client best maintain his relationship with his agent?

The relationship between client and agent is delicate. On the one hand, there is the agent, most days too busy with the demands of the industry to take time to call or email each client to "catch up." On the other hand, there is the client, out there in the world, with many of life's distractions. Days turn into weeks and the relationship between client and agent can go through periods where there simply is no "relationship." There is hope. Email.

While we are all busy, most agents are in the office and on email at least 10 hours a day (if not 24 hours a day!) This makes it really easy to know where to find them, if they let you. We do. Maintaining a relationship with your agent in a way that is unobtrusive is key for us. We simply want our clients to keep in contact, and conduct themselves with the same level of professionalism in which the agency approaches the industry.

Our agency appears to be different from most. We enjoy our clients and our "family vibe. However, it is important for clients to maintain this relationship in a professional manner. We are all here to make money – which reinforces the fact that this is a business.
