It is with great pleasure that I announce my new venture! I have been asked to join The Linicomn Agency to help open their second office in Los Angeles. This company first piqued my attention when it was apparent that they didn’t want to open a traditional talent agency, but a boutique service that would be for individuals with learning or physical challenges. WOW.. this I can do!
My role will be as a lisasion between talent and casting directors. Also, I will be an educational consultant helping children and young adults who have learning challenges such as Down Syndrome, Aspergers, or Learning Disabilities, receive an opportunity to be “submitted and pitched” like their peers. Actors between the ages of 3-25 years of age who are deaf, blind or have mobility difficulties and use a wheelchair will be able to submit for consideration for representation to The Linicomn Agency, as well. As a fluent signer, I can easily communicate with people who use sign language as their primary or secondary modes of communication
Actors can read more about The Linicomn Agency on the website: http://www.TheLinicomnAgency.com
The LA office is slated to open this Winter 2012. Casting directors and organizations wishing to learn more, please connect via this post
For more information, please feel free to comment here and I’ll email you personally. ( I have learned not to leave an email in a post or you will be super-spammed)

I am a Hispanic Actress that has Parkinson’s. I know that you basically deal with kids and young adults but do you know where I can maybe get representation. I am 49 years old and have always wanted to go into acting. I have already done some EXTRA work but am wanting to do more. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Ms Louise Sattler
I, Tiffany Henderson came upon your page searching for talent manager for my special needs young man age 19 with Down Syndrome Justin Magee for help on getting more attraction to him towards his career. I myself try to manage his appearance affairs but I’m not doing a very good job. We live in metro Atlanta Ga. I viewed your work and you seem like the perfect person for Justin due to him still having language barrier.
Hi Tiffany- I am not a talent agent. But, thank you for the compliment. There are many good resources at the Screen Actors Guild website. SAG.org
