Common questions

How does StarNow work?

StarNow is an online marketplace where Talent and Casting Professionals connect directly, about jobs and auditions in the entertainment industry. 
It’s fast, efficient, cost effective and you’re in control! 
We’re on a mission to make casting simple, safe and accessible.

For Talent

We welcome people of every age, ethnicity, location and experience level.

You simply register online, and create a profile that showcases your interests, skills, experience. Our members apply directly to jobs and auditions that interest them.

You can search all of the jobs available on our website, and we'll also email you updates on jobs that match you. If you're a dancer living in Wales and a listing comes in looking for someone like you, we'll let you know!

It's free to create a basic profile using a Trial Membership, and trial members can apply to some listings for free. To apply for unlimited jobs on site, appear in our Talent Directory, enhance profiles or applications, get priority access to listings and more, members need to select one of our paid membership options, which are about the cost of a fancy coffee a month.

Our members include actors, extras, models, social influencers, dancers, musicians, hair and make-up artists, crew and more. You can be a total beginner right through to a seasoned professional.

You can expect to find a wide range of jobs on our site that cater for every level of experience, and you can filter these to find the best fit for you (e.g. paid or unpaid, in your area or further afield).

You communicate directly with the Casting Director on everything, including agreeing any rates of pay and processing of payments. StarNow is not an agent and we don't take commission on your earnings or invoice on your behalf.
