How to get in the industry as a foreign actor 

Convener(s): Jean Paul Dal Monte

Participants: Monica Nappo, Claire Thill, Martin Parr, Shuna Snow, Steven

Summary of discussion, conclusions and/or recommendations

  • Find an Agent
  • Sell your “diversity” your “Foreignness” as an asset not competing for british roles
  • Try to break, to breach the rigidity of the cliché’ of Italian, French etc. giving the double choice between the stereotype and the “foreign” but versatile type of actor
  • If the market is still and there are no funds, better do something on your own better than stay waiting. For example, that’s what many actors do in Italy.
  • If you have your agent in your own country, it’s useful asking him for links and connections with Uk agents
