Most of us are very familiar with the incredible international talent from Europe, Africa, Asia, and Latin America who come to Los Angeles to work in film and television. But I am curious to hear from European casting companies and talent agencies about their experiences working with American actors outside of the US.
With the incredible amount of content being produced all over the world for streaming platforms, I’m curious to learn if these projects are ever in need of American actors. Are there projects in Europe for example, in which the need for a specific American accents (such as New York or a Texas accent) are needed for the authenticity of a certain role?
What ideas or advice would a talent agent based in London or Paris give to an American Actor who wants to pursue work in film and television outside of the US?
As the entertainment industry continues to evolve more and more into a global community it only seems to make sense that American actors should want to avail themselves to projects outside the US with the same commitment and passion that actors hailing from around the world bring to US-based productions.
