100% of 2018 BA (Hons) Acting and BA (Hons) Actor Musicianship graduates, eligible to work in the UK, have either had agent offers or progressed into employment. Agents signed to include; Olivia Bell Management, Global Artists and Howard Cook Associates and The Artists Partnership.
Graduates who have progressed directly into roles include Molly Harris (Acting) who will be appearing in the 2019 Disney film Artemis Fowl, alongside Judi Dench and Josh Gad. Others include; Jordan Laidley (Acting), who appeared in Shebeen at the Nottingham Playhouse and Theatre Royal Stratford East, and Eleanor Kane (Actor Musicianship) who is currently appearing in Fun Home at The Young Vic.
BA (Hons) Actor Musicianship Programme Director Alison MacKinnon is delighted with the quality of agent representation:
“I am absolutely thrilled that all of our eligible graduates have either found acting work or have gained representation. Many have both. It is testament to the growing industry reputation of our students that has been gathering momentum for some time.”
In addition to their final year industry showcase in the West End and public and industry productions in London and Sidcup, the students also received advice from visiting directors, casting directors and professionals throughout the year in preparation for entering the industry.
BA (Hons) Acting Programme Director David Zoob believes this preparation has helped with the quality of agents and roles chosen by the students:
“Developments to the training and professional preparation work in addition to the proactive efforts of the students are continuing to pay off. Our graduates have a far better understanding of the various aspects of the industry and it is gratifying to see many students, with a range of offers, thoughtfully choosing the right agent for them.”
