'So an actor walked into my office...,' Rozanne Gates began. For over 20 years as an actor's agent in New York City at The Michael Thomas Agency, Gates had hundreds of actors walking into her office. Her job was to make the choice between who got represented and who didn't - and then to make sure that they worked successfully. Her job also included making sure that her clients understood the business aspect of acting, which can be a bit troublesome for many.
