What does my Mother have to do in order to be my agent in acting, and what does she have to know? Please only answer if you know.
A parent may be a good choice as a manager, providing they have keen business sense, but agent is a totally different story. Being an agent requires connections and inside know-how in wheeling & dealing with producers and casting agencies, and rookies/amateurs are not typically very successful.
