New Employment Agency ActionActors Launched
ActionActors has just launched and is a new employment agency dedicated to sourcing non acting work opportunities for actors and other performing artists.
Co-founded by Bruce Hopkins (former Limbs dancer, stage and Lord of the Rings actor) and Anthony Hurst (PeopleMax, Digital Productions), the service is receiving good support from both the actors and their agents and already has more than 40 actors on the books.
"We have some of New Zealand's best known faces, also plenty of up and coming actors but we need more - lots more," says Hopkins.
"Actors and performers have skills that are ideal for promotional and branding as well as other work and with the Rugby World Cup now underway and summer around the corner, we believe demand from clients will be strong."
Hopkins says that ActionActors aims to source actors work "between roles" to provide increased financial security and the ability to be more selective in their acting or performing choices.
'We're really impressed with the skills these people offer and the scope of work they can perform, we are confident employers will find what they are looking for" says Hopkins.
Actors or performers are invited to visit www.actionactors.co.nz
