Carlos Alvarado created this agency back in 1941 to represent talented Latin and European actors living in Los Angeles and has represented celebrities such as Ricardo Montalban, Anthony Quinn, Lupe Ontiveros and Edward James Olmos.

In 1983, Mona Lee Schilling inherited the agency from her Uncle Carlos which she ran until retiring in September of 2000. When Mona Lee decided to retire, the first person she called was Nikkolas Rey, because she knew that he would carry on the legacy of Carlos Alvarado concentrating on this increasingly important ethnic group of actors.

Since then, the agency has expanded rapidly, taking on actors from all backgrounds.
