If you want to get in touch with Jane Anderson, send in an email, with ONE small Headshot and a link to showreel and CV. The email mustn’t be too heavy, so beyond the headshot include links rather than files. The emails go into Jane Anderson’s lists for review when appropriate roles come up.
You’ll find the contact details at the Jane Anderson Casting website.
Only send emails, do not reach out by phone or social media. Do not send further emails, unless you have new headshots.
Jane Anderson believes having familiarity with the sides for a first audition is much more important than knowing the lines off by heart. By the recalls, however, you need to be off book.
For self tapes, Jane Anderson prefers to see you responding to the lines given by another human being, rather than an app.
Keep the background of self tapes clear and distraction free, so the casting team only looks at the actor on screen.
Jane Anderson talks to James Pearson at the Collective Creative Initiative, in an in-depth interview packed with advice for actors
