Feature: Texas Talent Agencies

May 5, 2021

Talent agencies are a core component to SelectVO’s success. While our site design, key features, and customer support make casting and choosing talent a breeze, it’s the ear and experience of top talent agencies that put the perfect voiceover talent in front of you.

Over the next month we’re going to highlight the talent agencies that make us look good, and help your voiceover project reach great.

To make the list more concise, we’ve broken up these articles by region. This week, we’re going to highlight talent agencies in Austin and Dallas.

The Campbell Agency



The Campbell Agency was founded in 1989 by Nancy Campbell.  With her background in advertising, production and even as a talent herself, this provided a genuinely unique perspective for the Dallas market.  She discovered and recruited top talent – both in front of the camera and behind the desk – that brought a quick ascendance into the top ranks of agencies in the Southwest.  The Campbell Agency is recognized as a leading agency nationwide in all media and is at the forefront of balancing personal attention while providing clients state of the art support in all their casting needs.  From local ads to international campaigns, Nancy and her staff are determined that each client be treated with respect and understanding for their individual needs.  Our voice actors are among the most experienced in the Southwest and can be heard on national commercials, corporate training films and a wide variety of anime series and video games.

The agency philosophy of not merely “taking orders” but being proactive in developing and marketing models, actors and artists is a major force in the vibrancy of our clients’ careers.
