Does Fishpond represent actors like an agent?

Fishpond is not an agency so we don't represent anyone. After you pay your subscription fee there are no other costs and we don’t take a commission if you are cast in a role. Fishpond is a database of actors both represented and independent. Everyone signs up and manages their own profile on the site. Casting directors then use the site to cast projects for Film, TV, Theatre, as well as commercials etc. If you'd like to know more about the site as an actor, have a look here
