e-TALENTA and Breakdown Services – We connect Europe to Hollywood

On July 1, 2017, e-TALENTA and Breakdown Services began working together to provide International Casting opportunities for European and North American talent.

Our collective goal is to provide Hollywood and other North American productions with easy access to European Actors, Agents and Casting Directors and the European Community with unprecedented North American opportunities.

Gary Marsh

"European actors are becoming increasingly important for North American studios and productions. This is partially due to the international marketing of many films, as well as the high quality of trained European actors.
We're very happy to have found a partner in e-TALENTA who reflects the entire lingual and cultural diversity of European actors and Casting Directors."

- Gary Marsh, Founder of Breakdown Services

Russel Boast
"I think in the recent years the demand for European actors in the US has grown exponentially."
