Castings happen all around the UK. If you are based in London and the surrounding areas then you need to be sure you can be available for castings at very short notice and get into central London within 24 hours. If you are based in the North of the UK you need to ensure that you are within easy reach of casting venues in Manchester, Liverpool and Scotland.
Celebrity Booker represent Actors, Models & Supporting Artists from birth upwards old from all over the UK. We hold our Artist days in March and September and our auditions are on an invite only basis.
It is very important that we meet you so that we can get to know who we will be representing to the industry. We have to be sure that we are always sending the right client for the right job.
Children that are under 2 years old do not need to attend the auditions. We do not need to meet you personally as children of this age are changing all of the time. We would ask that as a parent you decide if your baby or toddler is of the right disposition to be in a casting environment. They should be calm, contented and happy to be held by people they haven’t met before.
We cover all types of work including TV, films, theatre, radio, commercials, corporate and photographic.
Most jobs will take place during the working week and depending on the type of job will depend on how much time is required.
On commercials shoots, parents / legal guardians will be required to chaperone. If the job requires longer commitment, then the production may supply a licensed chaperone. If you are 16 years or older then you will be regarded as an adult and will not require a chaperone.
Unfortunately there is no guarantee of work. Whilst we have connections with industry professionals we do not know what will come into the office on a daily basis.
If an agency guarantees you work, then you should steer completely clear! We will put clients forward for castings/bookings that come in as long as they meet the criteria. It’s worth noting that if you are not happy with your child missing education or your school is not supportive then joining an agency is not for you.
Celebrity Booker are a Spotlight approved agent. Spotlight Children and Young Performers directory is the UK’s definitive database of performers aged 4 – 25. It is the best way for any young performer to promote themselves to casting opportunities. Children can join any time after their 4th birthday. Only children who are represented by an agent are eligible for Spotlight membership, which is why they are the casting community's most trusted database of young performers. We strongly advise all of our clients to join Spotlight. It costs an annual fee of £98 (inc. VAT) plus a small agency admin fee. This additional cost is another reason why our annual agency photoshoot fee is kept to a minimum. Access to Spotlight's online database is only available to vetted industry professionals.
