For students who would like to be professional actors

Many people come to Drama with a Difference with the intention of becoming a professional actor. As a drama school that has been the launching pad of so many successful actors, we are a good place for you, if that is your intention. We encourage your dreams and aspirations, while keeping a realistic and grounded approach.

We know a number of ethical agencies, specializing in different areas and different ages. Once we get to know you, we will be in a better position to offer you suggestions.

You can book in for a private session that includes an explanation of how the industry works – what an agent does, how an agent differs from a casting director, which agents are likely to take you on, what they would require prior to considering your application, how to set out a CV – even if you have relatively little experience, there will always be something relevant to place on a CV.

Most good agents will want to see some kind of show reel prior to taking on a client.
