As a co-operative actors agency we believe in working as a community. We aim to support, develop and advise each other as both performers and agents and as equal peers. It is this ethos that has enabled the agency to grow year-on-year since we began over 30 years ago.
West Central clients can be seen in a multitude of feature films and TV series, including 'Pennyworth', 'My Dinner With Hervé', 'The lost City of Z', the Academy Award-winning 'Darkest Hour' and both seasons of National Geographic's 'Genius' series.
Our clients' stage credits span West End theatre, including the RSC's 'King Lear' at the Barbican, 'Mr Foote's Other Leg' at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, and other credits at venues including the Hampstead, the King's Head, the Union and the Criterion.
Some of our clients commercial work include Ladbrokes, Haribo, McDonalds, Amazon Prime, Esso and ASDA.
Our books are currently open for:
Male & Female - Playing Age 16-25
Male - Playing Age 30-40
Female - Playing Age 40+
Male - Playing Age 60+
Male & Female actors of any age who experience racism.
Please have a look at our current casting pool and think about where you might fit in. To ensure that we can represent our actors in the best way possible, we keep our books to a limited number.
We welcome diversity in all its forms. We are actively involved in a process of learning and growth to ensure we do the best job of representing anyone in our agency, whatever their background or needs. This includes having an Equality and Diversity committee, and regular reviews of our practices. We have chosen to use the term 'actors who experience racism' here based on the feedback of people with this life experience, but if there is another term you would prefer please let us know. We want people for who they are, not to tick a box.
WHAT BEING PART OF A CO-OP MEANS
In an actors’ co-operative, all members contribute to the running of the agency. This includes working three days a month in the office and monthly meetings.
We look for actors who we think could represent us well, just as much as we consider how we could represent them.
