Do You want to be an Actor? – 3 Tips on what a Talent Coordinator Looks for

Judee Martinez started acting at the age of 20. She was a part of the Performing Arts for 20 years. Along her journey in acting with other television networks, she became a talent for CBN Asia and then became a talent coordinator. She helped in recruiting the actors in CBN Asia’s Holy Week Special, Wanda’s Wonderful World, airing on March 30, 11 p.m. at ABS-CBN.

“I recruit supporting talents, and along the way, you get to know the people inside the industry,” she said in vernacular.

Here are 3 tips from her to those who are aspiring to be an actor.

1. You must have the talent.

It’s not just about the looks. You need to know how to act. It’s a bonus if you are versatile—being able to act, sing, and dance.

2. Respect all the people you work with.

Respect is a must in the industry. You shouldn’t just treat the bosses and the major actors and actresses well. You should also relate well with the extras and the crew. You should treat people with equal respect.

3. Never stop learning.

If you have the chance to join a workshop, do it. Seize every opportunity to learn. Even the veteran actors never stop learning!

With all the things that Judee has gone through and achieved in her 20 years in the industry, she gives the ultimate glory to her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.” -Psalm 32:8

“That was the gift given to me by God. Enhance the gift you have! God will show you the way,” she concluded.
