Well 2021 has finally arrived. The outlook is looking uncertain but here at Frances Phillips we are feeling optimistic. So those of you wishing to apply for representation need to get your submissions in. Don’t forget it is mandatory to have two years professional credits, be 18+, supply your Spotlight View Pin Number, date of birth and mobile number. Obviously we will be meeting remotely for now but I look forward to hearing from you and should you fit into our lists I will be in touch.
Well it has been a strange month. We have a light at the end of the very very long tunnel and over 30 self tapes, umpteen Covid Forms, NDA’s and audio tapes have been submitted and the month is still not over. Thank you to all the casting directors for their requests and thank you to all my wonderful artists, especially those of you had several to do over a couple of days, for getting them back to me in time. Onwards and Upwards to all.
So this morning three self tapes have already gone off to Lucinda Syson, Kharmel Cochrane and Jina Jay’s office for SCOTT BARRINGTON, BONNIE ADAIR and EMILIO ANIBA and we now await the rest of the week.
So far this month we have had self tapes for CARL BATCHELOR, EMILIO ANIBA, SETH MORGAN, BONNIE ADAIR and several pencils for Helena Harrison, Stephen Israel and Andrew McHale and we are still waiting for confirmations – Hopefully.
BONNIE ADAIR is currently in Ireland to film an episode of Innocent and EMILIO ANIBA has just finished filming for Live Business a corporate in three different languages, French, English and Spanish!
