Having worked in the industry not only in front of the camera but also behind it for over 10 years, Simone knows all too well the different hurdles which make it difficult for actors to get through the casting door.

Simone has worked on TV shows such as Emmerdale for ITV and From There To Here for BBC.

Through both Simone’s and Jamie’s combined experience, they are able to help professionally trained actors find a gateway into Television, Film, Commercials, and Theatre across the globe.

Alongside acting, Simone graduated with a BA(Hons) in Business Management & Marketing, which gives her the perfect foundation, and a huge passion, for all areas of business and the running of both companies: First Take School of Acting and JLA Talent Group.
