Showcase Saturday – Dorrel B!

Welcome back to Showcase Saturday here at Max Agency —  a successful Toronto talent management agency in Canada representing menwomen and children.

This week we will be featuring the hardworking and driven, Dorrel B!

An introduction to Dorrel:

“I am Jamaican by birth but now I am living in Canada, soon to receive my citizenship. Prior to moving to Canada, I have lived in America for several years and for a short while in England. I am a Paralegal and major in business, corporate and immigration law.”

How he got involved in modelling/acting:

“I always thought modelling/acting was for much younger people, like people in their twenties or early thirties. I never thought anyone forty or over would be accepted into the industry, but my wife Arlene and my sister Sharon kept telling me to give it a try. My wife one day jokingly submitted my application to a few modelling agencies and sure enough in less than 30 minutes the phone kept ringing (smile) from a few agencies but I chose Max Agency and the rest is history.”

His experience with MAX so far:

“I must say my experience working with Max has been pretty awesome and wonderful. I have learned so much about the industry through Max and I am very grateful and really appreciate the experience.

I was booked to participate in shooting the Jessie Reyes music video “Body Count”, this was not my first video shoot, but it was “awesome” and remains to date my most memorable experience on a shoot.”

Watch the video below:

How Dorrel spends his free time:

“I love the outdoors, I mean I am a literal fanatic for wild life, water, trees, visiting parks, hiking, swimming, hitting the gym and going to the movies. I love to read (non-fictions) and very eclectic when it comes to music.”

Best advice for someone starting in the industry?

“I have seen, heard and learned a lot from working in the modelling /acting industry so far and my word of advice to anyone in the business or planning on coming into the business is don’t take anything said or done at auditions or on set personal. Once you have learned to master that art then you are on your way to success.”

Final thoughts:

“You are never too old or too young to discover the wealth of talent and skills that you have. Don’t judge yourself base on race, ethnicity or colour, just believe in yourself and God and just do you…the modelling/ acting world awaits your arrival.”

These are truly wise words from Dorrel! Some of our most successful talent are over 30 or over 50 even! Don’t let age scare you from pursuing modelling or acting if that is something you are considering taking up.

Showcase Saturday – Vail K!

Welcome back to Showcase Saturday here at Max Agency — one of the top Toronto modeling agencies in Canada representing menwomen and children.

This week we will be featuring the lovely and driven, Vail K.!

Vail was born and raised in Orangeville, Ontario. Her friends would describe her as funny, quirky and smart.

Ever since she was young, Vail never really felt like she was good at anything in particular, even though she would try sport after sport. From a young age, she knew that she didn’t want a regular 9 to 5 job like everyone else.

She wanted to do something she was good as and that she enjoyed doing. Vail excelled in drama class and would even get annoyed when her classmates did not take the plays seriously. That is why she decided to pursue acting professionally by signing with MAX.

Vail spends most of her time working her part-time job and still attending her last year of secondary school. During her free time, she likes to be with her friends and family.

She is hoping her time comes soon to begin working and experiencing more of the acting and modeling world!

If you would like to hire Vail or one of our other talents for your upcoming project, get in touch with us today: http://www.maxagency.com/contact.php
