Join Spotlight Actors

You can join Spotlight at any time of the year.

Once your application is approved, we'll get your online profile live on our website as soon as possible, and you / your agent will begin to receive the latest casting information via The Spotlight Link. We'll also include your book page in the next available printed edition, in due course.

Membership of Spotlight Actresses is open to actors who are 18+ years of age, and who have full-time professional training and / or professional experience.

How much does it cost?

Membership of Spotlight Actors is £149 per year if you pay by annual direct debit. Otherwise the membership fee is £154
(for card, cheque or other payments).

When will payment be taken?

Brand new Spotlight members
If you're a new member, welcome! All new members get a 30 day trial of Spotlight (cooling-off period) before any payment is taken for your membership fee. You can cancel your application at any point during this time, by emailing applications@spotlight.com. Your membership begins when we've approved your eligibility and your online profile goes live on our website. We'll take payment 30 days after this, from your nominated account or card. Please bear this in mind and make sure there are enough funds in your account to cover this, in 30 days time.

Previous Spotlight members
If you've been in Spotlight before, we'll take your payment asap - normally within 48 hours, although direct debit payments can take slightly longer. It's a good idea to make sure that you have enough funds in your account for a week or so after submitting your application, just to cover this payment being taken.
