Working with Magna Talent Agency is the best part of living in Oklahoma! I was a full-time professional host and actress in Los Angeles for about 7 or 8 years before moving to OKC. I honestly work more here thanks to Magna! My daughters are signed with them as well. The team is so professional and really works hard for their people.
I just wanted to let you know everyone was fantastic on set! Thank you so much for your help on this last minute project.

I am so thankful to be represented by the Magna Team. They do everything in a first class way and provide so many opportunities for me to grow as an actor. I couldn’t be happier! One of the most exciting things I do every day is open up emails from Magna! It always means there is a new possibility right around the corner!
I blindly called MAGNA for a client event, needing talent for a trade show that was in MAGNA’s backyard, yet 100s of miles away from me. They let me choose from a gallery of talent online, handled costuming, and best of all — the client was very happy with the talent.

WHO WE ARE
MAGNA is a full-service Oklahoma-based talent agency representing union and non-union actors seeking work in film, television, voiceover, print and much more since 1996 . We work to provide talent for casting agencies and clients throughout the state of Oklahoma, the region, and the country.
HOW WE OPERATE
We do require that all talent seeking representation with MAGNA have or obtain professional headshots, as well as some level of on-camera acting experience or education. We do not charge any sign-up or administration fees, nor do we require anyone to take classes, workshops, seminars, etc. in order to qualify for auditions or jobs through MAGNA. If talent is new to on-camera acting, they will need to take workshops or classes in auditioning for the camera and commercial acting in order to learn how to work with a camera before being represented by MAGNA. We always encourage continual learning, and will be happy to share with our recommended list of valuable resources.
MAGNA is invested in our actors and promise to always conduct business honestly and fairly. This has been our foundation and our reputation since our start. In doing business together, we hope to form lasting, productive relationships dedicated to showing the world how much talent Oklahoma has in its own backyard! We are dedicated to providing the highest quality representation to our talent, and an exceptional service to our clients. This means great opportunities for MAGNA’s talent, and enduring relationships with our clients. The agency philosophy has been based on integrity, perseverance and compassion since its beginnings.
MAGNA Talent Agency has been representing local union and non-union talent since 1996! MAGNA was formed out of MadLust Productions Inc., named for partners Margie Madden & Peggy Luster, who had been doing business in Oklahoma since January 1991. They began with the Whodunit Dining Room in Oklahoma City. The talent division of MadLust Productions has been in operation since August 1996 and has been growing ever since. Feeling that it was ready for its own identity, the agency was given the name MAGNA Talent in April 1999.
Michelle Swink, the current owner of MAGNA Talent Agency, has been a familiar figure in the Oklahoma theatre and film scenes for decades. She began working with local arts organizations and non-profits as a teenager. She co-founded a community theatre in 1992 and has been involved in everything from acting, directing, casting, marketing, fundraising, and more. Michelle first began working with MAGNA when she signed with MAGNA as talent in 2007. In 2012 Michelle began helping Margie in the MAGNA office and rose to the rank of Office Manager. At the end of 2014 Margie retired and Michelle became the new owner of MAGNA Talent Agency, bringing to agency to new heights.
Over the years, thousands of current and former MAGNA actors have worked on countless feature films, independent films, national and local TV commercials, industrial videos, print jobs, voice over projects, live appearances, and so much more! At MAGNA Talent we are committed to fulfilling all your professional needs. Whether you’re looking to book talent or become one, we cater to both sides of the camera lens!
