Agent Round Table, With Alex Priestly Talent

The Actors Forge held its first agent round table of 2021 with Manchester based Agent Alex Priestly.

About Alex 

After Alex graduated from The University of Salford with a first-class degree honours in BA Media and Performance, she began working at long established Manchester based talent agency PHA Icon. There she headed up and developed the actors division for 9 years, until taking the step to spread her wings and venture out on her own.

Over the years Alex has helped to establish and develop the careers of many accomplished actors including: Olivia Cooke (Bates Motel, Ready Player One, Vanity Fair), Dolly Rose Campbell (Coronation Street), Sam Retford (Ackley Bridge) Kirsty Leigh Porter (Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Hollyoaks), David Tag (Hollyoaks)

Alex is a well established Manchester agent with a real focus on developing new and emerging talent from regions outside of London.

The Roundtable 

The Actors Forge hosted a Q&A with Alex in which Actors submitted their questions prior to, and during the Zoom call. 

The attendees were then invited to unmute and ask Alex their question. 

This was a wonderful opportunity to learn from a successful Agent about how to get signed and work cooperatively with management to develop your career!
