For a long time, mostly only big stars had personal managers. This has changed over the years and now many newcomers have personal managers. Many agents have stopped being agents and have become managers instead. And some managers have become agents. Confusing? It can be. Let’s examine the position of a personal manager.
A personal manager helps you develop your image and the agent sells this image to the casting directors. A personal manager can help you find a good agent. A manager’s job is to advise, counsel and direct you. They may help you with your auditions, clothing, even how to wear your hair. It is the manager’s job to know what is selling and to help you become what directors are looking for in up-and-coming films, TV shows, and commercials.
Some actors feel they don’t need management, but most will always make sure they have that extra person to help with their career.
