As tempting as it may be to tell agents how long you have dreamed of becoming a actor and the rest of your life story, all they want to know are the basic facts, which are:
- Your Name
- Measurements (bust, waist, and hips for women, and waist and jacket size for men)
- Current Location
- Contact Information (phone numbers, email address)
- Citizenship (where your passport was issued)
- Agencies currently representing you, if any
When sending your photos by email be sure to include all of this information in your email. If you are mailing your photos it is important to have this information on the back of each and every photo. That way, if your photos get separated from each other or your cover letter, then the agents will know who you are and how to contact you.
