“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 are the 10 top talent agencies for kids may no be 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.
We went straight to the source and asked HMB friend and contributor, Casting Director Katie Taylor, which agencies she ranks as the 10 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:
- Abrams Artists Agency
- CESD Talent Agency
- Mavrick Artists Agency
- Coast to Coast Talent Group
- LA Models/LA Talent
- Paloma Model and Talent
- Zuri Model and Talent
- Brand Model and Talent
- Daniel Hoff Agency
- Osbrink Agency
Honorable Mention goes to Bensimon. Katie tells us, “They are small and just getting their franchise license, but their kids are phenomenal!”
