Terminology Tuesday: Actors Access

Actor’s Access, Casting Networks, Breakdown Express, Cast It, LA Casting, Backstage, Casting Frontier…⁠

So many casting programs, so little time!⁠

Actor’s Access and Breakdown Express are both services that are part of the parent company, Breakdown Services. ⁠

The primary difference between Actor’s Access and Breakdown Express is that Actor’s Access breakdowns go directly to the actors only. ⁠

Actors are able to self submit to projects themselves, which is especially helpful for actors who are not yet represented. ⁠

Breakdown Express uses the same functionality as Actor’s Access but those Breakdowns only go to agents/managers. ⁠

Most TV shows, studio films and bigger budgeted projects are only released on Breakdown Express. ⁠

However, many projects are released on Actor’s Access and Breakdown for lower budgeted projects and also certain projects that require a wider search. ⁠

Your profile on Actor’s Access and Breakdown Express (via your agent/manager) can be similar or different in terms of what materials you choose to post. ⁠

If you have any questions or concerns about what materials your reps have for you on their profile, it’s always best to bring these up during check-in meetings/conversations. ⁠
