PLEASE READ INFO BEFORE APPLYING
OUR BOOKS ARE CURRENTLY ONLY OPEN TO ACTORS WITHIN 1 HOUR DRIVE OF LONDON WHO ARE OVER 16 AND HAVE COMPLETED YEAR 11
Boutique talent agency, Allen & Abel, are inviting applications from confident, talented children and young performers. We will be offering representation with guidance and support.
Between us our team have many years’ experience in the industry and we will work with the talent, and their parents/guardians, to access the very best opportunities.
We will get in touch with applicants that we would like to see more from, usually requesting a short video. For those we feel we may have a place for, this may be followed by a meeting, ideally we would love that to be in person, but while that is not possible it will be an online meeting. The agency does not charge a joining fee and will be keeping the numbers low and the standard high.
Please apply from all areas within one hour drive of central London*
We won't need expensive headshots and are keen to trial some alternative ways. It will be a very hands on affair and we are very keen to make it inclusive for all youngsters with the only absolute requirements being: fabulous talent, reliability, 100% enthusiasm, 200% determination and good manners(!) (The last few requirements will apply to both the talent and the parent/responsible adult)
It is an essential part of the team work that we meet with parents/guardians as well as with the talent, so we can discuss the responsibilities involved in enabling a youngster to make the most of the any opportunities the industry, and an interest such as this, may offer.
We welcome applications from all backgrounds, all shapes and sizes, any ethnicity, any additional needs, any accents etc.... We are not looking for applications from youngsters who are with an agent already please, if you have no rep or are between agents then great!
Please understand that we will only take on a very small number of the applicants we receive. This is no reflection on talent, but there is enough competition in this industry without creating internal competition too, so we will try not to represent talent with a very similar look to someone currently on the books.
Before applying please bear in mind that casting notifications are generally very short notice, often no more than 24 hours in advance. If you feel you, and your family, can commit to this then we would love you to apply via our online form.
It is a time consuming interest which can hold great rewards, but it can also be a sacrifice with little to show. Please consider this and how your child would deal with the highs and lows. Sadly, we can never guarantee work to anyone.
Please be aware we represent children and young people for all areas of the industry as a Talent Agency, we are a sole agency although we will discuss our talent having a dedicated model agency too.
* We will occasionally consider those further afield. Anyone under 17 must get their responsible adult to apply.
