All Principal Performers and the first ten (10) Background Actors per day must be covered under most SAG-AFTRA contracts. If, within reason, you need to hire a non-union member for any covered role, you must submit a Taft-Hartley report, within 15 days of the performers’ initial work date.


SAG-AFTRA does not assist in the casting process, but iActor is available to active Signatory producers. For further information on iActor and how to register, please click visit:
