Our History

Founded in 1978 by Barry Brown, we have been representing and nurturing Actors for over thirty years. Carrie Simcocks joined in 1985, and for more than twenty years they were known as “the Barry & Carrie Show”.

Kelly Andrews joined in 2008, shortly before Barry’s passing, and worked in Partnership with Carrie until she retired in early 2016. Carrie remains a silent partner in the company.

Many of Barry’s original clients remain with the agency today, a fact of which we are justifiably proud.
