From Cowtown Cowgirl to Industry Trailblazer

For more than 40 years, Mary Collins has been redefining the role and operation of a talent agency.

“I’m proud of my company’s history of firsts. We were the first talent agency in the Southwest to represent only experienced performers; no beginners, no models, no kids. When we opened in 1984—coincidentally the first year of the Apple Macintosh—we were the first talent agency anywhere to use computers for booking talent. They were Macs, of course. Three years later, in 1987, we developed the first custom, networked database in the industry to track our performers’ schedules, bookings and payments. In the late 1990s, we installed a digital VO audition booth, the first for any talent agency outside of LA.

Now, I’m pleased to offer this new website with interactive casting, to assist you during a time when so many are working from home. As selecting talent, and the industry overall continues to evolve, our goal is always to evolve with it.”

From the start, the Mary Collins Agency has been committed to providing the finest talent available. Our VOICEOVER artists are mainstays for major commercial brands, Fortune 500 Companies and regional advertisers across the country. They are heard on broadcast radio and TV, cable networks, and on every digital platform. Our seasoned professionals also narrate corporate videos, documentaries, museum exhibits, podcasts, audiobooks, e-learning and live announcing (VOG) for business theater. In the gaming world, we represent some of the most popular and recognizable interactive video game and anime character voices working today.

Our established ON CAMERA professionals perform in commercials for broadcast and cable, digital and new media platforms. We also provide talent for various types of corporate communications, including non-broadcast, web, sales, marketing and e-learning videos. Throughout the years, our actors have appeared as series regulars and guest stars on episodic and limited-run broadcast, cable and streaming TV shows, including Emmy Award winners. Our film actors have appeared in Academy Award and many film festival-winning movies. They have worked on Broadway and off, including national Broadway touring companies.

In the specialized POLITICAL arena, highly experienced voice pros speak for candidates and issues on ads from local and state campaigns, all the way to Congressional and Presidential. Our SPANISH and bilingual speakers are adept at their various native and regional dialects. We also represent performers who are exceptionally skilled in IMPROV and SKETCH COMEDY.

Finally, many of our actors appear in COMMERCIAL PRINT, in both printed media and on the Internet, including social media, consumer and trade ads, point-of-purchase and billboards.


At The Mary Collins Agency, we understand this business and know your projects rely on both high standards of performance, and professionalism and dependability. That is our hallmark.

We’ve Got Talent.
