Nancy Carson - Round 1 of Star of the Fair

Nancy Carson is the licensed talent agent and the owner of the Carson-Adler Agency in New York City. She has been representing children and young adults for nearly forty years. During that time she has gained a solid reputation as a leader in her field. Some of the actors whose careers she has launched are Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Donald Faison, Britney Spears, Arianna Grande, Kristen Bell, Lea Michelle and Tempestt Bledsoe who played Vanessa on The Cosby Show. As an advocate for young performers she worked to achieve mandatory tutoring for children on tour and was in part responsible for the NY law requiring a blocked trust account to be established for minor performers so that 15% of their wages will be set aside until they reach age eighteen. Currently her actors can be seen in Harry Potter, School of Rock, Lion King, Anastasia, Kinky Boots, Wicked, Chicago, Book of Mormon, Mean Girls the upcoming Getting the Band Back Together and Tootsie among other shows. On television she has people on House of Cards, Rise, Madam Secretary, The Americans, The Amazing Mrs. Maisel, and Orange is the New Black and many more during this current season. She is the author of the popular book Raising a Star published in hard cover and as an e-book by St. Martin’s Press. She is always looking for her next star and is excited to be in Memphis and meet the talented people there.
