(3TV/CBS 5) − Dani's Agency has been in the Valley for 30 years.

"Our agency represents all ages and ethnic backgrounds," Misty Wagner says.

She and her mom, Dani, help actors in Arizona find and get paid for local and national jobs.

"We represent maybe 6 or 700 people," Wagner says. 

Jan Sandwich, 68, is one of their clients.

"This year has been the best year that I've had, " Sandwich says.

"I've had talent work on national commercials who make up to $50,000 to $100,000! That's one day's worth of work, you cant beat that," Wagner says.

Sandwich is not hurting for gigs. She may look familiar. She's been in Peter Piper, Gila River Casinos spots, but her favorite shoot was one with a lot of football players.

"I loved being in that tunnel with all of that testosterone, it brought back memories," Sandwich says.

Bobby Minch, 59, has been acting on the side since he was in high school. He's done lots of work and has been on pretty cool auditions.

"Plain Sight, Breaking Bad, Longmire," Minch says. "My goal list is a series regular that I have, like, two lines an episode, and I get a check."

"You'll have people some people who will get success right away, while some people will take a little longer," Wagner says.

"I love new experiences and meeting new people. Its just so exciting," Sandwich says.

Sandwich says this job is much more than making a little money and experiencing some cool moments.

"It gives me warm fuzzies, you know, and it makes me happy," she says.
