My team and I are there to work alongside you to assist you in reaching the highest levels of professionalism.

Since our formation in 2014, Ryan Talent has proven successful in providing professional, industry standard talent for:

  • Television Shows including Shortland Street, Tatau, Step Dave, West Side Story, The Brokenwood Mysteries, Power Rangers and Agent Anna.
  • TV Commercials including Fly Buys, DB Export, Sovereign Insurance, Westpac, Vodafone, Telecom, Trident, Food in a Minute, Gregg’s Coffee

Our aim is to provide a unique, friendly and personalised service with a hands-on approach. The team at Ryan Talent are all highly experienced in the casting process and understand the challenges that face the industry. We are known for going the extra mile to provide support to our talent and clients to ensure that a project or shoot will run smoothly.

One of our main points of difference is the training that all our people receive, prior to turning up for work. This allows our clients to be secure in the knowledge that people booked through our agency are set-ready and professional, which translates into repeat bookings.

Another plus is the fact that we are a boutique agency. At Ryan Talent you’ll face a lot less competition for work within the agency and our clients appreciate the fact that we really know our people.
