Back Stage, August 1st – Maggie Schuster on a Manager’s Role for Young Actors, by Simi Horwitz. Managing the careers of working actors varies with each client, especially young ones. Duties range from making sure that a client reports to the set on time to helping them make creative decisions in connection with upcoming projects. She says the best way for an undeveloped actor to make himself manager ready is to really listen to the manager. The manager’s job is to counsel and advise, and that rule never changes, although the circumstances may. So listen and choose a manager that’s right for you and your career. Something else Ms. Shuster faces with young actors is rejection. They don’t understand that a lot of factors go into the casting process. As a manager, she understands that dealing with rejection is a major obstacle for the young actor, and tries to help her clients understand what has happened and why, from not booking a job to a television show getting canceled.
