…waking up every morning and knowing exactly what to do to take your acting career to the next level. No more guessing, no more worrying, no more wasting money doing the wrong thing.
Blank resume? Just starting out? No problem.
The actors I work with start with no training, no experience, no agent, or family in the industry… I’ll show you step-by-step how to create & launch an acting career from scratch!
Are you ready?

Have you been dreaming of pursuing an acting career but don’t know how to get started? I get it. I work with actors who are just starting out, who already have a little bit of experience, or are coming into this career for the first time later in life.

The actors I work with get signed to top agents and managers and book work in TV and film. As a talent manager for many years, I know exactly what you need to do to start, or build your professional acting career.

I can help you. I’ve worked with actors of all ages and types and let me tell you, there is one thing that works for everyone. Yes, you read that right. One thing that works for everyone.

Are you ready to find out what it is?

Drumroll please….

You need to have a business of acting plan.

A business plan?

I know what you’re thinking.

“Why do I need a business plan? I want to be an actor, not a CEO.”

I hear you but this is show business, and as an actor, you are the owner & CEO of your own BUSINESS.

Either you have a business plan to succeed or you have a plan to fail.

That is the difference between successful actors, achieving your dreams or dreaming about the success you never have.

You can have all of the talent in the world, but if you can’t get an agent or manager or get into audition rooms to show your talent – it won’t matter.

If you don’t have a business plan, I want to give you one, join my free 10 Steps to Starting Your Acting Career MasterClass below.


I’ll tell you the most critical, very first action you should take before anything else.


Learn how to create an outstanding acting marketing package that will get you into the audition room.


You’ll understand what agents and managers are looking for in actors.

“I couldn’t be more grateful for Wendy Alane Wright’s Hollywood Winners Circle. I actually wished I had purchased it sooner.

I love how the course breaks down different parts to help you have smart industry standard materials. I understand what it means to have the correct headshots, resumes, social media links, etc. There are so many resources for actors on this site!

TODAY I got an email from the director informing me that I booked the LEAD role in his upcoming FEATURE film, which will be available on Amazon Prime. This is my very first feature!
Thank you, Wendy Alane Wright for creating HWC. It’s seriously life changing. ♥️”

– Gina Cordan


“It’s like having an ace in your pocket. I have seen many new actors that have no idea what to do or where to go.
Wendy’s Hollywood Winner’s Circle Academy puts you ahead of that and sets you on a path for success. It’s thousands of dollars worth of material at a deal of a price. Wendy literally is giving away valuable information.

The Hollywood Winners Circle keeps me going in the right direction!

I am so excited to announce, I now have representation by the wonderful Lora Huntington at Classic Talent Agency. I have so much to say, but will say thank you Wendy Alane Wright and the HWC for the guidance, motivation, and support.” 

– Stephen C. Bell

“Just. Wow! Where do I even begin? Talk about the actors bible! Not a single actor in the industry can afford to go without the contents of the Hollywood Winner’s Circle Academy. Not one! The best money I have ever spent for online acting material.”

– Kevin Useni


“The Hollywood Winners Circle Academy is a godsend for actors and I firmly believe it should be a mandatory part of standard, textbook acting training! I studied acting in college and learned nothing about how to get working in this industry. This fills a huge gap! Thank you, Wendy!!!! For pioneering this roadmap for actors! Every actor needs this!”

– Mary Beth Synk


Meet your mentor

I’m dedicated to helping artists succeed. Nobody cares more about your success than I do. I’ve been in working in the entertainment business over 30 years first as a singer, then as a talent agent and then as a talent manager. Unfortunately, I’ve seen thousands of actors fail because they don’t understand how the business works.

Most industry people say “let them figure it out by themselves” but I couldn’t stand by and watch people fail when I have the knowledge and the information to help people achieve their dreams of working on film & TV.

I am on a mission to help you people realize that you are valuable, you are worthy of success, and I will help you gain the confidence you need to achieve your goals. I know you can be a great success.

Things I do for actors

I created a free Facebook group called Talent Managers for Actors, where 150+ agents, managers and casting directors offer their advice to over 90,000 actors – 24/7 365 days a year.

I’m also the creator of the number one YouTube channel for actors called Secrets of a Hollywood Talent Manager, which has over 5 million views.

I’m also the creator of the number one YouTube channel for actors called Secrets of a Hollywood Talent Manager, which has over 4 million views.

Yes! The HWC Master Course was made with absolute beginners in mind. The HWC Master Course teaches you how to get experience, so there is no need to have any. 

The HWC Master course was created for actors in the beginning stages of their career.

We recommend the HWC Master course for anyone who falls into any of these categories. 
  • You don’t know where to start 
  • You want to get your first co-star TV credits. 
  • You want to sign with an agent or a manager 
  • You want to sign with an agent or manager that is a better fit for you. 
We do not recommend the HWC Master Course if you…
  • Are already booking guest stars, recurring roles, or series regulars on TV.
  • Are already booking lead or supporting roles in major studio features.
Yes! The HWC Master Course was created to help actors who live anywhere in the United States of America.  HWC has resources and recommendations for classes, headshot photographers, agents and managers throughout the USA. Additionally, most acting coaches are on Zoom now so our training recommendations are possible for actors who live anywhere in the USA, or the world. You don’t need to start your career in a big city. We have actors in small rural towns in Texas, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Washington DC, Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Florida, Ohio, North and South Carolina, Michigan, Utah, and Alaska, as well as in the big cities of Atlanta, New York, and Chicago. At HWC, we are excited to help actors find advancement in their acting careers wherever they live!
If you live outside of the United States: We have actors in 23 countries and 6 continents taking the HWC Master Course! The general business techniques you learn in this course will absolutely help you, however we cannot guarantee the specific methods/websites/steps in the course are going to be the same in your country. The HWC Master Course does not go into great detail about moving to the USA or getting visas. For this, you need to speak to an Immigration Attorney. We often recommend Kate Raynor & Associates.
With that being said, if you plan on moving to the USA to act, the HWC Master Course will prepare you and help you hit the ground running when you get here. If you plan on staying overseas for your acting career, the HWC Master Course will teach you how to start and build your career right where you live by teaching you universal business practices that you can apply anywhere in the world. We have actors in HWC becoming working actors in their own countries and actors who have made the exciting move to the USA to work in Hollywood.
