What people say about what we do


“The Mary Collins team has consistently helped us find just the right talent for the job – even when it’s at the eleventh hour. There aren’t many agencies that go above and beyond anymore, but the Mary Collins team does. Every project, no matter the size. We are lucky to be able to lean on our partnership time and time again. From start to finish, Kim and Alice are complete gems.”

–Mona Lurich, 31,000 FT



“Professional, Pleasant, Efficient. Right in step with the speed of the industry.”

–Marion Kennelly, Lotas Productions, Inc.



“Not only do you represent some of the best and most diverse talent in the metroplex, you’re one of my favorite agencies to work with. Can’t wait to do more with you in the future!”

–Joel McDonald, Gearbox Software



“Working with the team at MCA is a dream! They’re responsive and offer creative solutions for selecting the perfect talent – on-camera to VO – from among their many fantastic actors. Scheduling can be nightmare, but Sara and Kim bend over backwards to make it happen. I’ve been working with MCA for 20+ years and it’s telling how many of their actors are still with them. Mary and her team foster a professional but family-like agency not only for their actors, but their clients as well. When your back’s against the wall, the deadline’s looming, and the stress sets in it’s reassuring to know they have your back and are prepared to come to your rescue!”

–Kelly Maher, Voyager Sopris Learning



“Pep Ventura has been a Mary Collins client for 25 years. She’s always been our go-to agency because of her incredible stable of talent. Also, the ease and flexibility of working with the entire Mary Collins staff puts other agencies to shame. They always make me feel that Pep Ventura is part of THEIR family, not just an agency for hire. The Mary Collins Agency is the perfect combination of business savvy and creative energy.”

–Danny Owen, Pep Ventura



“Andrea Jobe, the director of this project [Eyewitness Bible Series] and co-owner of Pivot Films with her husband, Robert, can’t stop telling me how much she loves the Mary Collins talent pool! They each just possess a quality about them that is hard to describe. They come fully prepared. The nuance they add to their characters is always spot-on. The camera loves them. In addition to all of that, they are both professional and personable in their interactions. Thank you for representing such quality people both on and off set!”

-Jason Stafford, Triangle Management, Inc.



“Kim Trusty and the entire Mary Collins team are the best in the business. Not only are they a one-stop shop to the best talent around, they make the entire process seamless and can make magic happen under the tightest of deadlines.”

-Tom Dunn, Narrative Strategies



“I absolutely love working with Mary Collins! As an Account Executive for a busy advertising agency, it’s so important to have contacts who are organized, responsive and know their business. Sara is always readily available to answer my questions, provide quotes, and is flexible with making adjustments as we work back and forth with my clients. I highly recommend Mary Collins for all of your creative talent needs!”

-Michelle Fisher, Plan B Advertising



“Mary Collins and her team have helped me, and countless others, navigate the talent industry. They explained the rules and regulations when I was new to the industry, and Kim Trusty continues to patiently answer my questions, even now. Together, we have cast commercial print, actors, and voice talent for more than 30 years.

We consider The Mary Collins Agency to be an integral part of our production team because they are fair, ethical and protect the interests of the clients we serve.”

-Lynne Swihart, Balcom Agency
