An effective acting agent should have a clear idea of what roles you are looking for. In order to develop this rapport, you need to help him/her get a better understanding of who you are. Ask the agent how s/he sees your career right now and where it could head, realistically. Find out what the agent expects you to do. S/he usually won't have a pat answer, but this will help to start a conversation that will allow you to figure out the boundaries of your relationship.
