At Lori Lins Ltd., our main mission is to serve. We hand pick our talent pool to ensure that they are experienced, easy to work with and pleasant to be around. We meet and get to know every talent that we represent so as to learn their strengths and their limitations. We assist producers and directors in the casting and booking of voice actors, on-camera actors, print models and promotional staffing with performers of all ages.


Taking the problem of finding the right talent for the right project off your hands. If you have a difficult client or an impossible budget, talking it through with us will save you time, headaches and valuable resources.


We invest time in our talent, coaching them and helping them hone their skills so that they can be prepared to tackle any situation that a job may throw their way. Our Chicago and Milwaukee office staff work together to give you the best service possible and get you the best performer possible. We do all this while placing special emphasis on efficiency and friendliness.


Our friendly and efficient team has a combined 100+ years working in the industry. Feel free to contact us with inquiries about your next project, or just to say hi.

  • Lori Lins – President
    Lori started the business in 1978 with a cardboard box and a typewriter from the floor of her apartment. Starting in front of the camera, her transition to the other side of the business was done through the school of hard knocks. After 46 years in business her ability to select talent, negotiate contracts and navigate the industry with precise attention to detail are part of the company’s greatest assets. When she isn’t finding new ways to expand the reach of Lori Lins Ltd, you can usually find her floating down a lazy river in her kayak, or hiking to the top of a mountain in some far away locale, as both traveling and kayaking fill her life with passion.
