It was just so easy working with Sarah and her clients. We cast a brilliantly prepared and professional young actor who has added great depth to a difficult character. The agency were collaborative and supportive and HAYA will always be someone I approach when I'm looking for young actors.​

Sarah’s one of the best in the business. Her suggestions are always bang on brief and she’s a pleasure to deal with on a day-to-day basis. Her eye for young talent is incredible so everyone who comes into studio delivers the goods.

Sally Andrews

Casting Director

HAYA is always one of my first points of contact when searching for natural talent. The children are some of the most professional children out there. Always properly prepared, a delight to work with. This is clearly a school that nurtures personalities and prepares children for the industry whilst allowing them to be themselves.

Verity Naughton

Casting Director VJN

The Hunt Academy is one of my go-tos for young actors. They have a fantastic range of young people whose uniqueness is obviously nurtured and encouraged. They are never too 'stagey', always very natural and they always arrive really well-prepared.

Sally McCleery

Casting Director

I came into contact with Sarah and The Hunt Academy, when I was casting for a feature film. One of her clients, was an absolute delight to work with. I look forward to working with her again in the future, and wish her and all her clients the best of luck!

Personal and professional service

Our young actors are all trained to a high standard at The Hunt Academy and are very well known to their representation in a way rarely seen in child agencies. You can be sure that by working closely with the actors to develop their skills we are at the front line of knowing their strengths and characters.

The Hunt Academy For Young Actors Agency provides a bespoke service for both actors and industry clients. We will not submit actors for work that they are not 100% appropriate for. This ensures that time is not wasted on either side of the casting table. Our ethos is one with the welfare of the child at the heart of what we do and we work closely with casting directors, production and chaperones to ensure that this is paramount at every step. We also understand that employing young talent can raise some complications so we work closely with actors, parents and industry contacts to make sure that the entire process is as smooth and as personable as possible.
