What we look for in potential clients

Only talent filled with humility is of real use to humanity.” – Brahma Kumaris

Every artist in this industry has talent – we look for a whole lot more

Team Players 🤜🤛

Recognising that their agent is far better placed than they are to understand the inner workings of the industry, our clients look to us for guidance. Our clients also recognise that this industry runs on clear and efficient communication – that’s why our clients keep themselves available and reachable, and respond quickly to confirm availability, castings, recalls and bookings.

Our clients also strive to continually update their online profiles, showreels and headshots so it’s clear to casting why they are appropriate for all the jobs we are trying so hard to get for them. It’s about working with each other, not against each other.

A Business Mindset  🏦 💵

It’s called ‘show business’. Yes, you’re an artist, but the sooner you realise you’re actually a small business owner with yourself as the product, the sooner you will help us to help you by adopting a business mindset.

Our Founder and Senior Agent also has the benefit of law school training, which means we can advise our clients in a way very few other agencies can in regards the inception, execution and discharge of any potential employment contract they are offered. And this business can be tough. Not a day goes by when we don’t have to use our legal savoir faire on behalf of our clients – you’ll appreciate that fully when it’s on your behalf.

Long-Term Loyalty ☔️☀️

The first year or two will determine if you ‘get it’. The unpredictability of this industry can be tough for artists to accept, but right from day one at BTA® we are there to guide and encourage. In return we expect our artists to work with us as loyal and reliable teammates as we continually evaluate your progress.
Deeper into our agency relationship we offer some of our clients other forms of representation, including international management. And some of our actors also develop into fine writers, ripe for our growing literary department.
But let’s cross those bridges if and when we come to them – see if you can get (and stay) on our books first 😉

Balanced Ambition 📚✅

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither is a career in the entertainment industry. Balancing your ambition with reasonable expectations is the key to both longevity in this business and a happy relationship with your agent. Our clients, therefore, do everything they can to further themselves in all of their talents, while at the same time respecting the odds they are up against.
For our part, we do everything we can reasonably do in guiding our clients on how to improve their chances with casting, as well as doing our due diligence in putting our clients forward for appropriate and plentiful submissions. And, yes, we do that rare agent thing and submit our clients ‘across the board’ – we love nothing more than triple, even ‘quadruple-threats’ – recognising that each of your talents is probably equally as important to you as the others.

Across the Board

Bridging the gap between ‘straight acting’ and ‘musical theatre’, we aim to provide tantalising opportunities across the board for both our acting and MT clients.

Many MT clients are fabulous actors, and many straight actors are fabulous singers. It may take a little more effort on our part, but we go the extra mile to get to know all our clients’ skills, and then submit our clients for everything they can do well, irrespective of what their obvious ‘specialty’ may be.


One of our best known MT / straight actor cross-overs is Isabelle Georges. A well-known musical theatre signer, we recently got her booked on her first feature film, which she absolutely loved! Check out her lovely message to Ryan below. ❤️

Isabelle is well-known as a stage performer in France. Recently we booked her on her first feature film – and she was more than a little happy about doing it. Have a listen to her VM here 😊🙏


Singer/Actress, BTA®


We secure work for our clients in a vast range of mediums, including but not limited to: film, TV, video games, documentary, commercials, all forms of theatre, all forms of musical theatre, dance, cruises, resorts, voice over, presenting, modelling, events, corporate, webisodes; apps and new media, etc.


Success in this industry is weighted by combining a scientific and artistic approach to submissions. Nothing works better than taking and using hard data (the science) and combining that with decades of wisdom and experience (the art) to increase and strategise talent submissions.

Thus, every couple of months we encourage our clients to request their Spotlight submission report from us. The responce is always the same - sheer amazement at the qualitative and quantitative data. You're welcome 😉

"Happy Xmas/Holidays, Ryan! I am so grateful to be your client, and am delighted with the opportunities you have brought my way so far. Thank you for all your hard work! Here’s to a prosperous 2023 together! Xx"

The BTA® Family

our clients say it best

There's only one BTA®

Lots of lovely BTA clients, staff and Ryan joined together to celebrate Ryan's law school graduation ceremony in London. 

Miles recently approached BTA® for representation. He'd spent the last 2 years getting frustrated with his previous London agent (a very well-respected mid-size agency) as he had received very few auditions and no bookings.

His close friend has been one of our clients for many years - and, as he watched his friend book job after job after job through BTA®, Miles always wondered what would happen if he was with BTA®.

Well, Miles left his previous agent and we signed him on February 9th. Less than 6 weeks later we booked Miles on a lucrative international job earning him around £7k. Needless to say, Miles was very grateful and sent us this lovely video from the airport. 😊🙏

"You are the best. So hard working."


Casting Director & Producer, Anne Stone Casting

"During the course of booking one of his clients for one of our productions, Ryan gently pointed out that there was a simple, but rather important, error in our contract. Ryan was absolutely right - the error was obvious once you saw it. I'd been using that contract and sending it to countless other agents for about 8 years and not one of them had spotted it! We amended the contract and booked his client. With his evident and almost effortless knowledge of contract law, Ryan's pretty unique in this industry."


Producer, Rapport Group

"Legend! 😊 ...thank you Ryan, you’ve sent in some ace groups ❤ ... thanks so much for these fab tapes so quickly xx...   ...You da best! X"
