Welcome to Here and Ready, a talent database of Black Actresses.


The Here and Ready Talent Database offers a quick solution to the age old dilemma: I know I need them, but how do I find them? The actresses listed here represent decades of experience, ranging from Broadway to community theater, from series regular to background performer, voice-over, stunts and more. Our actresses can be found in markets across the United States and even Canada,..because you may need Black actresses there too!


Here, you can:

- Search for talent by age range, notable skills and representation

- View resumes and watch reels
- Submit a casting breakdown for direct submissions
- Directly communicate with talent via email 


If you're here and ready to discover and hire Black actresses, we're here and ready for you!

If you are a Black actress, join us!


Learn more about the database and our active private community that is working in every aspect of the entertainment business, from Broadway to background, from stunts to Shakespeare! LEARN MORE

NEW WEBSITE, COMING SOON!!


In the fall of 2021, Here and Ready received a grant from social justice leader and movement strategist Tamika D. Mallory. Thanks to her generous endowment, Here and Ready was provided with the financial backing to start a re-design of our website, create and build a private membership network

and establish the the Mallory-Artese Scholarship Fund! We can't wait to share the new site with you!
