Wendy Alane Wright is the powerhouse behind Talent Managers for Actors and The Hollywood Winners Circle Academy.
Wright, a former talent agent and manager got fed up with seeing decades of scams perpetrated on showbiz newcomers, along with the inability for actors to get seen without the proper connections and having to pay hefty fees for access to talent agents and managers. Further, she was very concerned by sheer volume of unexperienced, uneducated actors applying for talent representation, actors who were in no way viable business entities and without guidance would fail.
To address this systemic problem Wright first began a You Tube Channel called “Secrets Of A Hollywood Talent Manager” which now has over 90,000 subscribers and over 4.5 Million views. Dedicated to the success of new actors, Wright spent 7 years giving free advice to help actors navigate the competitive nature of show business. She extended this guidance and support to actors by founding the Facebook group “Talent Managers for Actors” which provides a platform to get reliable information and gain exposure to legit industry players at no cost. She invited 150+ industry friends including Agents, Managers, Entertainment Lawyers and Casting Directors who generously volunteer their time to answer actor’s questions and give critical insight on how show business works. Today there are over 65,000 members.
The TMFA allows actors to publicly showcase their work through Monologue Mondays, receive free acting training every Tuesday from top industry coaches like Howard Fine, Margie Haber, the late Jack Turnbull, Sandra K. Horner, Mike Pointer, Joanne Baron, Shari Shaw, Peter Frisch and Celebrity Booking Coach Amy Lyndon. On Fridays, working actors including Chris Brochu (Vampire Diaries) Ammie Masterson (Better Call Saul), James J. Ciccone (The Deuce, Irishman) among many others go live in the group to pass their wisdom and experience on to the new generation of up and coming actors. The first Sunday of every month is Representation Sunday where TMFA members submit for possible representation which has resulted in countless signings and the beginning of many professional acting careers.
In order to expand support for actors, Wright founded The Hollywood Winners Circle Academy a 100% online Academy dedicated to the business of acting and giving actors intensive guidance on starting and developing an acting career using the proven methods Wright used in her management company to get her clients working on Blackish, Henry Danger, American Horror Story, Sharp Objects, Animal Kingdom, Good Girls and Modern Family to name a few. Wright delivers a step-by step blueprint that is duplicated with actors throughout the world and taps into her powerful industry connections to provide students with additional expert training from Hollywood’s top casting directors and reps including Lisa London, CSA, Melissa Skoff, CSA Lindsay Chag, CSA Megan Foley, CCDA, Manager Brian Medavoy, Agent Amy Lord, Manager Brendle Canda, Agent Jackie Lewis, Steven Tylor O’Connor, CSA, Isabella Hibbs CSA, Terry Berland, CCDA and social media guru Heidi Dean among many others. The HWCA also offers a Parent Course for families getting their children into show business and is releasing a slew of new courses slated for 2021.
