child actor auditions


Posted on 20. Jan, 2015 by in Agents & Managers, CHILD ACTORS, THE BUZZ

“Which are the 10 top talent agencies for kids?”  If only I had a dollar for every time we’ve received this question.

We all have our favorite talent agents and talent agencies, but what a Hollywood Mom thinks is “best” isn’t always what the professionals think is best – just ask any mom who has lamented over her child’s agent’s choice of head shots.  At the end of the day, one of the opinions that matters most, in terms of kids actually “booking” jobs, is that of the Casting Director.

10 top agencies for child actors and child models

Zuri Models tells kids “Live the Life you Love!” Modeling for RumPunch Kids.

We went straight to the source and asked HMB friend and contributor, Casting Director Katie Taylor, which agencies she ranks as the top talent agencies for kids (child actors and child models) in Southern California, which is not an easy position to put a CD in (or any entertainment professional), but she generously rose to the occasion and gave us “The List,” you’ve all been pining for. In no particular order:

Top 10:

  1. Abrams Artists Agency
  2. CESD Talent Agency
  3. Mavrick Artists Agency
  4. Coast to Coast Talent Group
  5. LA Models/LA Talent
  6. Paloma Model and Talent
  7. Zuri Model and Talent
  8. Brand Model and Talent
  9. Daniel Hoff Agency
  10. Osbrink Agency

 Honorable Mention goes to Bensimon. Katie tells us, “They are small and just getting their franchise license, but their kids are phenomenal!”

10 top talent agencies for kids and children

Bonus List:

  1. House of Reps
  2. Major Minors
  3. MO Kids
  4. Clear Talent
  5. Youth Talent Connection

Who’s your favorite agent Hollywood Moms? Did they make the list?

    29. Jan, 2016

    I NEED SUGGESTIONS PLEASE! My 4yr old granddaughter is a close look-a-like to Kristina Pimenova. She has already been modeling for her mother who is a photographer so she already is familiar with how to pose. The problem is her father, who can be a complete twit at times & won’t allow her to go into any modeling agency. His excuse is, as he says ” I don’t want her killed like Jon Benet Ramsay” Which of course is a ludicrous thought! I know she could earn enough money to pay for her future college & it would be a shame not to allow her to get paid for what she is already doing anyway. Any ideas here would be appreciated, thanks

    Hello. I am so glad to have found your very informative site. Do you have any information about agencies in Colombia South America for children? I have a 3-year-old son who literally has people stop in their tracks to look at him, comment, and then actually want to take pictures of him. Some just take pics of him on their cellphones, with or without asking. I know he has a great look that people like to see and are attracted to which would be fantastic for potential companies who are looking to market their products because of the reaction he gets everyday in public. Thank you for any help you may be able to provide.

    Hi! I’m glad to have found this site! It is very informative! I have 2 beautiful little girls 5 & 9. We live in South Florida but travel to NY quite often. My 9 year old has a very Ralph Lauren look and people often stop in their tracks to stare at her. She is a regular kid and completely oblivious to how pretty she is. My 5 year old is much more girly and a cutie pie. She has a vintage child look similar to a Shirley Temple type. Who or where would be the best avenue to take to see if there’s a future for either of them in print or commercial work. 🙂 Thanks!

    Hello, most of the people that I know that knows a little bit about modeling tells me that Agencies should not charge anything, until your kid books a job. Is this a true statement? there are any fees related to join an agency? I have 2 daughters one is 12 tall/model type and very pretty and a 5 years old that everyone keeps saying that she should be a model full of personality. I never really gave a thought about my daughters becoming models, but I am open for suggestions as long is something that doesn’t require high fees

    I’m interested in getting my impeccably beautiful 1 year old daughter into a legit modeling agency. Two weeks ago, I logged into my Ralph Lauren account after browsing clothes that I’m going to buy for my baby; and then I decided to contact customer service. They actually contacted me with information and where to send her resume and pictures. Unfortunately, I have yet to receive the green certified mail card or any thing else, for that matter. I know my baby is destined for stardom. Don’t know what kind just yet, but I know it’s coming. Does anyone have any legit information that they could give me in regards to my requests?? It’s greatly needed and warranted.

    You should never pay someone to rep your child. I have two children that have agents. My five year old is with Abrams and my two year old is with Zuri. No agency that is legit will ever ask you for money.

    I have a 13 year old that has a great acting agent but really wants to get more modeling work. She’s too tall for children’s clothes but a hair too short (but still growing) to model adult clothes. Should we be applying to children’s modeling agencies or adults?

    to Caroline, personally, I wouldn’t go with that “agency.” They said they’re the middle man… but you don’t need a middle man. They promote your child to agencies? How do they do that? I can only imagine, they send them your info/pic. Which is what YOU can do too. Basically, you’re paying them to mail/email your child’s info, IF they’re doing it, and are will they do it continuously or once? Because what you need is a real agency that will get you the auditions. Go with this list on this site, they’re the real deal. They won’t “promote” your kid, they’ll send your kid to auditions that is fit for them. Personally, I was signed with Wilhelmina (well known), and I DID pay for photos (I had zero professional photos), and other things. The total cost came out to be a bit over $1000, BUT they did that to provide me with every single thing I needed. If I had those things, they would have used it, but I had nothing. They gave me amazing photos, a leather bound portfolio, auditions, jobs, and I even met amazing casting directors and agents from other agencies. They even helped me to get representation in order states in a once a year “business cruise” they have. With the things I paid for (headshots, other portfolio pics, comp cards, portfolio book) I had everything I needed. For the photos, I paid $70 and got amazing shots which were a million times better than a smaller agency for extras, and I paid that small company $250 for ONE picture. But about Wilhelmina, I have nothing bad to say about them. Yes, you should not pay upfront… [on my 2nd meeting is when we discussed the things I was missing] Wilhelmina worked with me and gave me a payment plan), but you have to think. It IS an investment, and their name is WELL KNOWN in the fashion industry! So, make sure you check the reputation with the agency in question. I wouldn’t work with Starlets, not a middle man. Go with a well known agency that is there get to you auditions!

    Caroline and Concerned auntie, Anyone asking for money upfront is not legit Never pay a company to promote or represent talent. The only money a company should make off of you is a 10%-20% commission of a paying job they get you. Never pay a registration fee or sign with a company that insists on in-house classes or photographers.

  121. Caroline

    22. Jul, 2015

    HELP!! I’m in the process of “interviewing” with Starlets agency..they are not actually an agency but they call themselves the “middle” man…they require about 550.00 some odd $$ to “start up” for ages 0-5 and the contract last for 5 years. They say they promote your child to top agencies. They don’t take any commission. So they only cost being that start up fee. PLEASE let me know if this is legit….I REALLY NEED YOUR OPINION!

    Gloria – You should schedule interviews with Paloma and Mavrick then. You’ll get a feel for which agency you feel more comfortable with during your meetings. I would also suggest researching their current client rosters. Good luck!

  136. Gloria

    05. Jun, 2015

    I got the Right Agent handbook and started sending out her picture. Those are some of the agencies that replied with interest in her. She deffinitely wants to act. I would like an agency that is well known, growing, and that can guide her in the right direction…gives her work.

  137. Hollywood Mom

    04. Jun, 2015

    List is very current – look at date of post Jan. 2015. As for the agencies you mentioned, Maverick, Paloma and The Beverly Agency are all very different agencies. Maverick represents adult & child actors, Paloma represents child models & actors and the Beverly Agency doesn’t even have a kids division that I’m aware of. Is your child interested in acting? Modeling? Both? How did you arrive at these three agencies?

  138. Gloria

    04. Jun, 2015

    Is this list still current? Just wondering about Mavrick, anyone know if they are good? Out of Mavrick, Paloma, and The Beverly Agency…which is top of the list all around?

    Please see Katie’s reply. Our feedback from other parents is that MINC is a hard working agency, good choice for newbies and beginners.

    Giavanna CCA is good too and yes 20% is standard for print and non-Union and 10% for sag jobs. And Jeff ,Minc is also good. This is just my top fave list. There are many other agencies that are great too. These are just the ones that tend to book most with me.

  147. Jeff

    23. May, 2015

    MINC tops Yelp. Any opinion?

  148. Giavanna

    22. May, 2015

    How to you feel about CCA (Coleen Cler Agency)? We were just offered from them and have heard that they are a boutique agency with very good communication with their talent, and that they’re well respected, but not seeing them on this list worries me. Also…I thought that 20% was the standard agency fee…am I wrong?

  151. Hollywood Mom

    19. May, 2015

    No Gabriela, That does not sound right at all. No legitimate agent is going to require head shots. Head shots should NOT cost you $500 ever – especially for a BABY. Please email with details so I can better advise you.

  152. Gabriela Pineda

    18. May, 2015

    Tracy, a talent agen wants to audition my baby girl. I’m super excited but if he wants to actually sign her there will be a photo shoot that will cost me $500. Does that sound right? I’m not so sure.

  153. Editor Tracy Bobbitt

    13. May, 2015

    Very. Those pictures are your child’s first impression on the agency and your first impression on the agency as to your level of savvy and professionalism. The initial photos do not need to be professionally done; however the photos must be clean (well lit, background that doesn’t distract), clear (child should be face forward, looking into camera), appropriate (no toilet photos, crying babies, etc!) Dress your child in solids without distraction like logos, vulgar sayings, crazy patterns or profusion of florals. Basically, use your best judgement.

  154. Kate

    07. May, 2015

    How important is it to have the pictures you initially send to be high quality pictures?

    We live in Oregon and don’t see a local agent. My son is 9 and has been told by several directors in our area that he has “it”. He acts, sings, and dances and loves the stage. My question is if there is a camp in the Hollywood area that I could bring him to? Hoping that may help with meeting people? Or if you have a recommendation for Oregon?

    No upfront cost should ever be involved with signing with an agent or manager; however, once you’ve signed with an agent, he/she will receive 10% of your child’s earnings. Read this article to get started:

    Need some feedback if possible:

    I have 2 young boys (ages 2 & 3). Both Osbrink and Coast to Coast want to sign them. We are having a difficult time making up our minds. We are super excited but don’t want to act on impulse. We are trying to do our research before signing, but I feel like there is a toss up in reviews with both agencies. Any suggestions or opinions? Tia!!

    Would love to see a list like this for NY. As a photographer, people ask me which agency to go with all the time. I have a few favs of my own, but I know the big names aren’t always the best and agents can shuffle around.

  171. Kristi Lin Finch

    21. Jan, 2015

    Great List. I own a model and talent agency and I connect with many other agencies. This is a great list for non New York and L.A. agents to send up and coming talent.

    21. Jan, 2015

    Hi Melissa! I generated this list from my booking sheets and audition reports. Which agencies kids do I call in the most and book with me the most? If you asked another CD, their list might vary very slightly. But for the most part, the majority of agents on this list, are on every CDs list. They are just the highest quality, most successful kids agencies in town with the best reputation and consistent skilled customer service

  173. Melissa Caddell

    20. Jan, 2015

    Neat to have a list! What makes these agencies good? Why did they make the cut? What differentiates them from the rest of the pack?
