Our Agency: Nurture Talent

Growing Professionally

I love to help people develop their skills and grow in confidence, whether just for fun or to go towards launching a career in the performing arts. For people who love acting and drama, I can take you step by step through the entire process – from fining tuning your performance skills to landing professional work. And if you are already in the workplace I can help you excel in your communicative and presentational skills.

Spotlight membership, photo shoots, auditions and professional work

Our agency is led by professional actress Frances Simon who offers a personal and friendly service for young clients wishing to pursue a career in film, theatre, television and radio. Clients are represented on Spotlight, an international casting house. Young people are submitted for work within the various mediums of acting. They may be invited to audition for a role and if successful, obtain professional work. Being part of the agency gives young people an insight into the professional world of performance. They learn to be resilient as it is not guaranteed that they will get to audition in front of a casting director or even that they would secure the role. Throughout the year, industry workshops are held to equip young people for the castings.

Our personal management and talent agency

  • Step by step guidance on going professional
  • Organising headshots & show reels
  • Signing up to Spotlight
  • Representing you in professional work
  • Coaching preparation for auditions

“Once enrolled on one of my coaching programmes, talented young performers will be hand selected and invited to join our agency Nurture Talent where they can apply for Spotlight membership. Performers on Spotlight are recognised by agents and casting professionals as the most talented in the industry, both nationally and internationally, and I will be there throughout your journey to guide you through photoshoots, auditions and landing professional work, whether in film, theatre, television or radio”.

“I want to be the best agent I can be and it may sound corny but the young people under my care do become like my own children, who I love to nurture. Hence the name of my agency! As an actor I always wanted an agent that really cared and I am committed to being another person’s ‘Jerry Maguire’ – somebody who will be there for them through the ‘high’s and the low’s and who will be their number one fan!”
