Patricia Rile has been in the fashion, acting and modeling business for over 20 years.
In 1969, she opened her dress shop, PATRICIA’S, in Montgomery Village, Santa Rosa, California. While still operating her shop, in 1989 she founded her modeling and acting school and licensed talent agency, COVERS, which was above her dress shop. In 1992, she devoted full time to the agency, representing over 220 models and actors. Auditions for film, TV commercials and print jobs are mostly held in San Francisco. Patricia became a Screen Actors Guild agent after dozens of her talent became SAG members.
“As a former SAG/AFTRA talent agent, I have worked with many clients, including: Microsoft, Blake’s Auto Body, Wells Fargo, Seimen’s Pharmaceuticals, Chase, Apple, Cisco, Eddie Bauer, Lil’ Caesars, plus many local ad agencies, just to name a few.”
I LOVE THE ACTING AND MODELING BUSINESS – just talk to me and you’ll see! I love the talent, the casting directors and, last but not least, the clients who book the talent! After 25 years of being a talent agent, I retired my SAG/AFTRA talent agency, Patricia Rile Talent (PRT), in October, 2016. I am now doing some consulting with actors/models who want to know more about how to get into doing TV commercials and/or print work without taking expensive courses- info on how to find an agent, who does headshots, where to find the best training possible and how to put a talent resume together, etc. If you are already in the biz and you need help in furthering your career, I can also give you some valuable pointers.
