Publicists are regarded as vital, separate members of your team. "If your career is taking off and you're constantly working, that's when you should get a publicist," agent Fatima Wilson says. Herman-Saccio elaborates: "We had a client who was in a Neil LaBute play, and she couldn't afford a publicist herself, but she got great coverage through the show's PR people because she proved to be a good interview subject. We have a client who's in the 'Twilight' movie, and he needs a publicist year-round. A publicist works on a fee rather than taking a percentage, so you need to be making money to do that."
