Why do some actors have 2-3 agents/agencies?

I’m confused to why you need multiple

Answers:

they might have other agents doing things in different places. you can't have more than one agent
doing the same thing in the same place. the agents wouldn't allow that. you can have a commercial agent, a theatrical agent, a print agent, a business agent or manager.

To get more opportunities. Agents help their clients get work based on the industry connections they have. So some agents know certain people/casting directors in specific areas of the industry. For example, one agent/agency may specialize in commercials. The pay to have access to commercial breakdowns and review them and submit clients for commercials. They don't pay that much attention to other things. So an actor may have a commercial agent and a theatrical (movies/TV/screen) agent. They may have an agent that specialize in voice over work too. Maybe it's by location so an actor has one agent that specializes in stage work in NY and another with screen work in LA. Maybe an actor does some modeling on the side and would belong to a modeling agency (which is different then acting) in addition to having a talent agent. In some cases, an actor can be covered in all those services in one agency (the agency represents the actor "across the board"). But other times, an actor needs to seek out separate agencies for the individual areas.

They may have different agents/agencies for different segments of the industry.. one for FILM, one for TV, one for print... it is not necessary but it is one approach

The only ones I know of who have multiple reps divide them by either type or place of work. An agent for stage, one on New York, one in London. An agent for TV and movies in California. I suppose if an actor lives in another country with its own active film industry, like Australia, he or she might choose to have a rep there as well.

Each agency specializes in certain niche markets.

More chance of landing a role.

more exposure for more work opportunities.
