With over 50 years of industry experience between them, agents Chris Carey and Samantha Dodd founded Carey Dodd Associates in 2012 with a clear and broad vision of developing and promoting the best acting talent across all mainstream film, television and theatre.
With our focus primarily on strong acting ability and experience, many of our clients also have additional skills that lend themselves to the accelerating changes in FX technology, as well as ever increasing audience expectations, and a drive across the industry to continue to push the boundaries further.
With computer generated characters becoming photo-realistic, the need for skilled actors to create these roles has become a necessity. Likewise, physical theatre, mask, prosthetics and stunts are also constantly developing, and performers highly skilled in these fields with strong acting backgrounds are increasingly in demand.
Carey Dodd Associates is well placed to service all these aspects of the industry, whilst still retaining our core principle of supplying the very best mainstream actors for all commercial and artistic areas. PMA members since 2013.
