Just wondering... Is there like a "specialist" type of a recruiter/agent that is a go-to place for mixed race children? I've seen kids acting on local screen for movies & ads as bi-racial kids to mixed marriages/couples but didn't look it. Is there maybe a shortage of mixed race kids in the industry and how can one get exposure for such opportunities?
