It is very exciting to get news about an audition or go-see (the audition for models.) But there is a problem and you aren’t sure if you can ask your agent this question. When is it OK to Ask Your Agent for a Favor I was recently in a situation where I was told about a go-see for a great modeling job. It paid thousands of dollars and I knew it would be a lot of fun to work on. Here was the issue. I was available for the day of the go-see and I was also open on the shoot date. But, I had a conflict with my scheduled time. The casting directors studio was around 2.5 hours away, so I did not have a lot of leeway with the times. So, I decided to get back in touch with the agent and let her know that I definitely wanted to attend, but that I needed to change my appointment time. The only time I could attend is if I were the first person seen. I was still cutting things a little close, but that would be the only way I could attend and make it back home for my other appointment. Watch the video Are Agents Going to Be Upset With This Request? Never Be Afraid to Ask Before You Contact Your Agent Before you quickly contact your agent, keep in mind what you are asking the agent to do. He or she will now have to call the casting director, explain the situation. Your agent is asking the casting director to either change someone else’s time, or slow up the casting. I understand, just moving one person around is not a big deal, but if there are a lot of actors and models requesting a change, it is not a great situation for the casting director. So, I don’t take this request lightly. I am assuming it is a pain for the agent, but if I don’t ask, then I will have to decline the go-see. They might be upset, but that is OK. This is a legitimate request, and the only way you will know if you can attend the go-see is by asking. The best thing to do, is know that you are asking the agent for a favor. If he or she says no, then that is fine. Don’t get angry with the agent. Remember, the agent is juggling my people at one time. If the agent agrees to request a time change (which the casting director might not agree to) then make sure you tell the agent how much you appreciate him or her doing that for you. Whenever you ask an agent to do something for you, it might not seem like a big deal to you, but it might be for the agent. Agent’s are dealing with so many details at once. I get it, that is their job, but that does not mean that it might not feel like a pain for them to add something else to their list of things to do. So, if you ever need something from an agent – always ask, but understand, your request might be denied – and that is OK. If you have ever asked an agent to do something for you, share it with others below. And, feel free to share this throughout your social media platforms so others can learn from my experience.
