Spotlight is the home of casting.

Spotlight connects performers with roles in theatre, television and film productions around the world. Casting professionals choose Spotlight to cast their projects because performers on Spotlight are recognised as the industry’s best. Actors pay an annual subscription.


You may be eligible to join Spotlight as a full member. You’ll need to meet standards based on your experience or training in order to be eligible – find out more about adult membership here.


A young performer wishing to join Spotlight must be a minimum of 4 years old and under 18. This means you can join as a young performer from the day of your 4th birthday and up until the date of your 18th birthday. To join Spotlight, you will need to be represented by a Spotlight registered agency (e.g. TV Twins) who can send you a secure application invitation to complete or apply on your behalf. Please contact us to request a secure application invitation.

Some recent changes to the age range of Young Performers. Once a Young Performer reaches 18, instead of being invited to renew, they will be offered an upgrade to Performer membership. Over the course of the next year, Spotlight will gradually remove the 18-25 section of the Young Performer membership, so that the renewal email for 18+ will be offering an upgrade instead. 

As twins, we understand the cost of membership is doubled. However, perhaps one twin has a greater interest in performing, therefore one could join Spotlight and we’ll include information regarding their twin on their profile.

There’s also a Bursary Scheme and option to pay monthly.

If you’re already on Spotlight, please email them at to request they add TV Twins as your representative. Once listed, TV Twins can submit you directly from the Spotlight board.
