About the Agency

 
In association with Barbara Speake Stage School
June Collins brought success to the agency with the discovery of Jack Wild who went on to receive an Academy Award nomination for his portrayal of "The Artful Dodger" in Oliver.  Over the years June Collins has been credited for having an eye for talent as names such as Naomi  Campbell, Keith Chegwin, Phil Collins, Brian Conley, Kwame Kwei-Armah, David Parfitt, Michelle Gayle and Mark Summers grew to fame 

Barbara Speake Agency is located in West London and is principally known for its partnership with Barbara Speake Stage School and its history   of talented alumnis who the agency has served since being established in 1961 by Mrs June Collins 


The agency's association with Barbara Speake Stage School provides an automatic, exclusive representation for its students who attend the day school, and  scouts for new talent from the schools part time programs as well as operating an open book policy where talent can be considered for representation for the children, young performer or adult division   


The agency has continued to represent talent for television, film, commercials, voice over, stage, musicals and print facilitating long term 

relationships it has built throughout the years with casting professionals and directors.  We pride ourselves on maintaining the legacy of the agency's predecessors and  pay homage to its other principal founder Barbara Speake  


 Our child division develops and represents children from birth to 15 years old while our young performers/adult division represent talent age 16  and above including past students with exceptional dancing and singing skills
