Our Approach

Our in-house agents are working, professional actors; they've trained at leading drama schools with professional credits in theatre, radio and television, including BBC, ITV, and Netflix.  They know from experience, how the industry works, what it demands and how to match our talent to the right opportunity to ensure you are getting the professional service you require.  

 

At FPM, we don’t just sit in the office waiting for opportunities to land our desk. We are proactive in scouting for talent, making links with casting directors and networking with industry professionals.  This ensures we are providing an excellent service for both our clients and industry partners.

The FPM objective is to seek out the best opportunities for the talent we nurture. We believe the actors we represent are the exciting, fresh talent of the future, and we're here to get them there.
