William Morris talent agent Bonnie Liedke discusses the four traits she looks for in child actors she may potentially represent: Looks, Talent, Poise, and Charm.  Of the latter trait she expounds, “Once they have that 5 seconds [in her office] you hope to god they can be very engaging.”

Liedke represents “High School Musical” stars Corbin Bleu (whom she calls a triple threat) and Zac Efron (whom she recalls as a once awkward teen), among others.  Video courtesy of www.backstage.com
