BFSW was a hidden gem that I’m glad I reached out to a few years back, in this global, digital world of casting, BFSW is a great resource. Always professional, friendly and understands the voices that I’m looking for on my projects.

Big Fish NW Talent is my go-to when looking for a quality collection of talent for my projects. Their roster is diverse and solid, and the agency goes above and beyond to help find the right fit and resources. I alway appreciate the very prompt and helpful communication I get when working with the BFNW agency. They are a genuine asset to the industry, and they manage both their talent and their clients with respect and true professionalism.

-Beth F.

Melissa works her tail off for her actors—finding and creating opportunities, negotiating the best rates and working conditions, and following up on every detail. Any actor would be fortunate to be represented by her and the Big Fish team. Melissa encourages you to push beyond what you think you’re able to do, and that really pays off. I’ve been with her since 2017, and it has been an amazing ride!
