My daughter worked in three movies and a TV series in New Orleans. All small parts. The person that found her the work was called a casting agent or talent agent. They took a small cut of the pay.

Tha agent is a person hired by aspiring axtors and actresses, to help thethem up.m find work. These usually have an a bundance of would-be clients, they don't have to go looking for them! That said, if they spot someone with notable talent, they will probably try to sign them up. A talent scout's job is to go to performances, looking for unsigned talent. (also to matches/games, for sports professinals)
