Julie Smith: "I love hearing; You're client's are SO good! from casting directors, because they are! We all, the actors, myself & Natalie give 110%. We know how hard it is to truly be a "working actor" & the commitment it takes on all fronts but we can only do so much, the rest is up to the actor."
Pam Grimes: "We view our association with actors as a partnership. We at Smith & Hervey/Grimes are your business partners. Our goal is to work together on your career and get you where you want [and need] to be. So when we make one phone call to the actor, needing them to get pictures, update their demo reel, etc... we don't want to have to keep calling them, it must be a priority. Again, it's a partnership, and we expect them to do as much work as they expect us to do."
Marsha Hervey: "The agency's general philosophy is that we are here to get you work. We LOVE what we do, so our clients should absolutely LOVE what they do. We're working very hard for them, and our clients do the same. If we give 100 percent, we expect our clients to give 200 percent. Having this collaboration is key and why our actors work so steadily and why we've been in business 25+ wonderful years."
