Great representation can help you build a long-lasting and successful career, riding out both the good and bad waves right alongside you.
And while they’re part of your team and you do build meaningful, enriching relationships with your agents and managers, you also need to remember that they’re not your buddies. Keeping things professional is key.
It can be easy to forget and slip up but the bottom line is that they ultimately dictate the work we do—or don’t do. To that end, here are four things you should never, under any circumstances, say to your agents or managers.

You may think they wouldn’t be anything without you but the contrary is true. Many actors came before you and many will come after. Saying things like this is a sure bet that they won’t be working with you at all.
