Sample Actor Resume
Talent agents and casting directors can quickly scan the three-column resume format shown below. Usually you will take two copies of your headshot and resume to auditions. Headshots are 8x10 color prints and you may simply staple the resume to each print back-to-back. Auditions come up suddenly, so it is best to have about six headshots printed and ready to go.
Some auditions require performing a monologue, so have a couple of monologue styles rehearsed and be ready to perform on camera.
