Do you charge joining fees?

No, we don’t charge joining fees. Reputable talent agencies do not charge joining fees.

How do I apply?

To apply to our talent agency, please send a headshot and CV to hello@ohjackieo.com.au

What is the application process?

Once we receive your headshot and CV we will ask you to do an audition. We may/may not proceed to a follow-up interview which is the final step in the process. Please note; the interview does not guarantee entry into our agency.

What do I need to prepare for the audition?

We send you the audition instructions and material. We ask that you are off-book when you do the audition.

What are the requirements for actors once they join your agency?

We work with talent on all levels of talent starting with those interested but with no experience all. If you are considering a career in acting, you will need ongoing training. If you are expecting to become a Hollywood actor, please note, it’s not a linear journey and nothing happens overnight, you must commit to the process in order to see results.

Which states in Australia do you represent talent?

We represent talent all over Australia.

Do I need to pay any money once I am represented by your agency?

No.

Do I need to sign a contract?

Yes.

Can I have more than one agent?

No, it is unethical to have more than one agency represent you.

How do I know if you’re the right agent for me?

We interview all talent to ensure we are the right fit for them.

Which reputable actors have you represented in the past/Which roles have they landed?

We have obtained many auditions for actors under our previous company, check out all the auditions we obtained our actors! We even signed one of our actors to a US agent who is now onto a Netflix series.

Since we have just launched Oh Jackie O, we are in the stages of developing our actors so they can feel confident during their auditions. Nothing happens overnight, however, we have access to all the casting notices in Australia and Los Angeles. We put our actors forward to all relevant roles. It is up to the casting director to ask you in for an audition, we can’t control who they shortlist but we have solid relationships with casting directors around the globe which give our actors an advantage hence why they received so many auditions in the past!

Jackie has worked as a casting director for more than 10 years which gives our agency a competitive edge, expertise and knowledge that the other agents have not acquired. 

At the end of the day, the actor needs to nail the audition – another component that we can’t control however, we guide our actors so they are confident when they walk into that audition room, providing them with extraordinary opportunities.

It is an extremely competitive industry but we won’t give up on you!

Jackie has travelled back and forth between Australia and Los Angeles and has met the following top agencies:

  • CAA
  • UTA
  • Management 360
  • APA
  • Gersh
  • ICM
  • Paradigm
  • Innovative Artists
  • AAA
  • Don Buchwald & Associates

Jackie has also met with the casting teams at the following biggest studios:

  • CBS
  • Warner Bros
  • Disney
  • VH1
  • ABC
  • 20th Century Fox

We only represent 15-20 actors at any given time so that we can dedicate the time and resources to each of our actors in this very competitive industry.
