As well as representing a select list of older more experienced actors, Middleweek Newton Talent Management is also one of the UK's leading acting agencies for young adults. Our clients work throughout film, television and theatre. From the totally raw to drama school trained, we only manage the truly exceptional.
Middleweek Newton Talent Management is run by Lucy Middleweek and Tom Newton. Lucy's heady acting career started as the young starlet in 'The Night Before Christmas' (circa. Dec 1985). After negotiating an unprecedented cast bonus, (mince pies and sherry), she slowly began to realise that
her destiny maybe behind the scenes, not in them. Four years as a professional actress later, followed by a brief stint in tv/film casting, Lucy finally found her calling while working as an agent's assistant. In 2008 she set up Hoxton Street Management and went on to forge the careers of a number of successful clients.
From Woody Allen's 'A Tall Dark Stranger' to E4's 'Phoneshop', Tom has worked in casting on numerous film and TV projects. As an agent he cut his teeth in 2009 working and establishing the then newly formed Cassius Management - a personal management service that went onto be taken over by Kentaro.
With Tom's in depth casting knowledge, Lucy's dedicated management style, and a collective hawkish eye for spotting the best in new performers, it became apparent theirs was a match made in agency heaven. It was thus that Lucy and Tom started their own management company, aptly named Middleweek Newton Talent Management.
Whether fledgling or experienced, we provide our clients with quality opportunities within the film, television and theatre sectors. Our approach is a spirited mixture of kick ass and the pastoral. We pride ourselves on the strength of our excellent working relationships, both with our clients and with their employers.
