Some ways to get in touch with celebrities are through official fan clubs; by contacting a related production entity or company office; through current agents, publicists or other representatives; and via a show or production involving the celebrity. More often than not, this kind of outreach doesn't establish direct contact; it more likely leads to a filtered interaction in which the intended recipient's "response" is communicated through an assistant, secretary or some other intermediary answering on the star's behalf.
Recommended methods for contacting celebrities vary, depending on the nature of the request. Professional inquiries, such as requests for endorsements and interviews, the need for publicity-related materials, and questions about availability, are best directed to a star's official management.
Project-related queries may be sent to either publicists or agents. Communications may also target a celebrity's related production company, studio sound stage or network office, if one exists. Sites such as iMDB and Fanmail.biz contain comprehensive contact data, chiefly centered on agents’ and managers’ addresses. Many Fanmail entries have additional information on network offices, production company listings and studio directories, some with available email addresses.
Fan-related communication, such as autographed picture requests or questions about promotional material, is best sent to a verified fan club or affiliated organization. For those seeking information about a star's TV show, such as upcoming guest appearances; details about viewer participation contests or giveaways; and/or ticket requests, directly contacting the show is the easiest method.
More technologically advanced celebrities may also be intermittently reachable through social media accounts on sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. This kind of outreach can sometimes result in a rare returned message or acknowledged comment, useful more for a momentary thrill than any legitimate communication. Any further "contact" is unlikely.
