What talent talks can
do for your production

Cast Categories

At Talent Talks, we specialise in specialising. We aren't just another Supporting Artist Agency. Each and every one of our cast have given us their specific skill sets, which have been vetted by us to ensure you are getting the talented people that we promise.

Whether you need Rugby Players, Twins, Magicians, Experienced Military Personnel, Horse Owners, Golfers, Circus Performers or BMX Riders to name a few, Talent Talks can provide them. Please take a minute to browse through the various categories below and hopefully you'll realise that Talent Talks is the only agency you need for all your casting needs.

Actors & Actresses

Clint Eastwood, Brad Pitt, Renee Zellweger, Megan Fox, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Bruce Willis and Marilyn Monroe - to name but a few actors who started off as “Extras” or “Background”.

There seems to be a stigma in the industry around Actors working as Support Artistes, however within the TT Family database we have accumulated a plethora of trained and experienced actors ready to work their skills in the industry at any given moment. Whether you require lead roles, featured, walk on or SAs, our capable actors and actresses are here waiting for their opportunity to show you what they can do.

Dancers

“We give you a stage to perform on” is one of TT’s slogans and it couldn’t be more accurate than with our vast catalogue of trained and experienced dancers. We are privileged to have been part of many fantastic music videos and to give our dancers opportunities to shake their stuff on the grandest of stages.

Whatever the style of dance you need, we have dancers a plenty. Whether it’s Jazz, Contemporary, Modern, Latin, Hip Hop, Jive, Street Dance or Bollywood, we have them all. Or if there is something more specific, we’ll probably have those too!

Commercial Models

Right here is where you can find some of the freshest faces and new talent in the industry. If you specifically need models with a commercial look we can not only match your brief but also give you options that haven’t been seen in the industry and that you won’t find elsewhere.

Of course if you need experienced commercial models we have these too and due to our expanding network of people, we can provide males and females from anywhere in the UK. It is quite often that models have other strings to their bows like dancing or acting and we are the perfect place for them to showcase their range of talent.

Supporting Artists

‘Full-time extras and background?’ People often say this cannot possibly exist as a full-time occupation. Where is Supporting Artist listed on any personal details form? Well it's not listed, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t professional individuals that pride themselves on being the ones who enable lead actors to shine, commercials to sell and movies to be realistic. Here at TT we have many SAs from all walks of life across the UK with varying sizes, shapes, nationalities and abilities. SAs/Extras/Background are the driving force and heartbeat of the TTFamily so whether you want those with a long list of credits on their CV or people who are just coming into the industry, we are the place for you.

Musicians

Whether it is instrument playing aficionados or someone who can whack out a falsetto, you’re certainly in the right place. We have singer songwriters, solo singers, bands, drummers, guitarists, pianists and anything else you could think of.

Whilst it seems difficult to piece together a band in the short time frame in which the industry frequently works with, we have people who have played/worked together on many occasions and have the existing relationship and chemistry to fulfil any requirement. Say you need a four-piece girl band then we can send you the polished article and many more to match specific briefs.

Presenters

In a world filled with outgoing personalities we can help find the right person to host your show. From online and TV to an event, we’ve got the host with the most or hostess with the mostest. With a range of experience, including successful vlogs, social media channels, shopping channels, radio, documentaries and events we are sure the TTFamily members within this category have the skills and charisma to keep the masses captivated and entertained.

Police Uniforms

Attention! What's going on 'ere then? Well, we'll tell you what's going on 'ere..... the UK Film and TV Registration Scheme now requires SAs who own, travel with and use Police Uniform / Costume for filming to be registered with them. If you need SAs with Police Uniform that are registered to the scheme please contact us - we have them, all with pictures, in their uniform at your service.

Parent & Child, Siblings, Real Couples & Families

TTFamily by name, TTFamily by nature. Not only does everyone on our books consider one another as family they also bring their blood relatives along for jobs too. If you need to cast a ‘mother and son’ or a ‘family’, the chemistry between them will always be better if they are genuine family members.

Regularly we have parents signed-up with us who want their children involoved in the indusrty, and will consider us a great starting point to build a CV and experience. In addition to this members will see our auditions and suggest to family that they join them for a job. Due to our reach we can offer professionals and “real” people with actual relationships.

Characterful Faces

When a Joe Boggs, Jane Doe, Fred Nerk or Juan Perez just won't do then we call upon our people with characterful faces. The title of this category speaks for itself really. Happy, sad, angry, weathered, spritely, other…anything on the emoji scale, we’ve got the cast that can express themselves to the max using their visage naturel. Although it is usually reserved for times when the cast is limited and specific looks are required these faces are unique enough to warrant their own category to show off in.

Twins

'Yes I have a twin. No I can’t read their mind' #TwinProblems. Whether you need twin children or twin adults or just want to use two people as the same character. Problem solved with our TT Twins.

Our guys and girls offer much more and they aren’t just twinning. They will have other skills too, just as cover should they ever find themselves needing to ride solo. We’ve got twin presenters, twin models, twin dancers, twin actors and even twin DJs! If you want double the trouble, check out the Talent Talks Twins.

Tattooed People

‘Don't worry if you had a bad day, remember there are people who have their ex's name tattooed on their body’. Some tattoos are tragic, but we’ve got loads of people that have ones that aren’t.

It is estimated one in five of the UK population has tattoos. So for a general demographic, one in five of the cast will or should have a tattoo of some sort? Pretty easy to find, however when it comes to a specific tattoo brief the TT family have it covered, quite literally, in ink. Whether you need an alternate male and female models with sleeve tattoos, unique people covered from head to toe in tattoos or anything in between we're the place for you.

Pierced People

‘Men who have a pierced ear are better prepared for marriage. They have already experienced pain and bought jewellery’. Which may or may not be the reason for male piercings, but if you need pierced guys or gals, we’ve got a whole mixture of punctured peeps.

As our quest to host the most diverse database of people continues into a pierced people category we ask ourselves where would we be without someone who could put a hotdog sausage through a hole in their ear? No matter how weird or wonderful a request might seem, we have a way of making square pegs fit round holes with the alternate cast members we have.

Crazy, Coloured, Wild or Funky Hair

‘Life is too short to have boring hair’. It seems some of our cast are planning on living fast and dying young as we have some amazing and crazy hairstyles in amongst the TT Family. You need wild and whacky, we’ve got them! Whether its coloured, braided, bushy, shaved, cornrowed, extended, dyed, long, short, frizzed or a mixture of them all, we'll have the hair do for you. 

Muscle Men

‘When I exercise, I wear all black. It’s like going to a funeral…….. for my fat’. We all love a 6 pack (one way or another). If you need guys with the muscle kind, we've got more abs than you can shake a protein bar at. This category is very much self explanatory, whatever you might need these adonises for we've got plenty of variations on the classic muscle man.

Alternate

In addition to the existing Tattoo and Pierced categories we have a specialist category that delves deeper into the Alternate bracket where you might be able to find just what you are looking for....‘Why fit in, when you're born to STAND OUT?’.

If your shoot needs people classified as alternate in some way, perhaps rockers, goths, punks, emo or anything else other than the norm, we have a pool of wonderful people to book. A lot of people in this category are experienced performers and have skills you may not have imagined to go along with their original appearances. Just ask to see what there is.

Facial Hair - Beard and Moustache

‘When someone asks me if my beard makes me hot in the summer, I like to reply that it makes me hot all year round’. What is the reason for men being able to grow facial hair? Is there some evolutionary reasons like they are to keep the face warm, camouflage while hunting for food or a way of attracting a mate? We don't know, but what we do know is that we love a good beard.

If you need young fashionable beards, old bushy beards, or any other type of beard, give us a beard.... oh errr, no, give us a shout!

 

Fitness Models

In amongst our pool of models, we have those who cover the fitness genre. At TT we are incredibly jealous of their toned bods and rightly so! The models we have are at the peak of their physical prowess with many of them being regular competitors in fitness competitions as well as personal trainers to those of us who aspire to be more like them. Their dedication to their bodies, as a profession is something to be in awe of and whether you need someone who is cut and shredded ready to take to the stage or someone who is off-season toned we've got them all here.

Catwalk Models

‘I do my little turn on the catwalk’. Immortal words from the one and only Right Said Fred (Google him kids). If you need guy or girl catwalk models to strut their stuff on the catwalk, don't book Right Said Fred, come to us.

Catwalk models have unique looks so can be used for an array of jobs. TT Family catalkers are happy in get involved in all types of projects so if you need a beautiful, imposing and professional male or female for anything then let us know.

Hand models

‘I always wanted to be a hand model just so when I walked into gigs I could say "yes, I'm here for the hand job."’ 

Anyone can be a hand model right? Or maybe the left one...Actually, wrong! It takes had work and dedication to get your feelers anywhere in this industry. Fortunately we have men and womens hand preened to precision. Manicures a plenty. Moisturised and soft as baby skin. Don't look like they've done a days hard graft in their life. Basically, we’ve got beautiful hands.

(Ex) Military & Emergency Services Personnel

No quote needed for these guys and girls. We know the importance, at times, for people that know how to handle weapons correctly, or how to act in certain Film and TV Scenarios where another Supporting Artist might not. In this instance, delve in to our serving and ex serving military personnel and emergency services personnel.

Tough Guys & Girls

Tough guys and girls are the essentials for any gang, squad, entourage or posse. If you're looking to recruit some heavies, goons or hard hitters as back up to the leader we have a conveyer belt churning out these guys as though it was a secret soldier programme. Right size, right look, right place!

Nationalities / Traditional Dress

Being based in London has drawbacks, mainly traffic and a lack of parking on set locations, but it also means we are blessed to be in one of the World's most multicultural cities. Therefore the TTFamily is proudly a very diverse crowd indeed, made up of a wide variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds. With such a mixing pot of traditions it would be wrong of us not to celebrate. The most effective and visual way we thought of would be to showcase some of our members in their traditional and cultural dress. Whilst some of our members are second and third generation, having been born in the UK, some have moved here recently from other countries so we also have a dynamic range of languages, accents and faiths across the TT family.

Androgynous Models

When it comes to equality nothing promotes this better than a role that could be portrayed by either a male or female.  A trend seen regularly within high end modelling and dance is becoming more popular in mainstream media. Something which may have started with David Bowie or Prince, and seen as quite unique and interesting, has now led to actors adopting pixie hairstyles and genderless clothing. Males with delicate features or females with a strong jawline are all part of the TTFamily. Brother or sister who cares, androgyny gives some of the most beautiful and striking looks out there.

Amputee / Prosthetics Wearers / Wheelchair Users

Talent Talks strongly believe in opportunities for all, with a fair and inclusive industry for people from all walks of life. Whether that walk is done with the aid of a wheelchair or a prosthetic limb, to us it's all the same. In order to give each of our members an equal chance, we’ve created this category that is especially for those striving for their dreams. Within this specialised cast listing we have people who have always been wheelchair users, people who have medical conditions restricting movement, some who have lost limbs in the line of duty and some who wear prosthetics to help with their day-to-day lives. None of this stops these people from being absolutely awesome members of the TTFamily!

Punks and Rockers

Rock 'n' Roll has influenced many a genre in the music industry and when it came to the more aggressive need of the 70’s the Punk Rock genre was spawned and never to be forgotten with revivals of some form in the decades that followed. Of course with any genre of music the fans and followers tend to pull some of the characteristics of the music philosophy into their own lives through their look and attitudes. Here at TT we have the grittier, hard edge, in your face Punk Rocker style of cast. Fortunately, as rebellious as they may appear, our rockers are very polite and well behaved, but they definitely look and can act the part when given the chance!

Drag Queens

Most of the TT family love to dress up and play a character of some sort. These guys take the extra step to make the complete exhibitionist performance. They’ve got their very own special category where we host drag queens of all shapes, sizes and ages with varying abilities from the entertainment circuit. Each comes with a variety of outfits, top make up skills and hairpieces so get booking our glamorous “ladies”.

BMX Riders

‘A bad day on the BMX always beats a good day in the office’ – BMX riders hate offices it seems. Which is good, because should you need BMX Riders, we have your every day riders to World Record Holders and Professional Champions. Whats equally good about this category is that BMX riders like to show off on camera so if you need evidence of a can-can, manual, handrail or tabletop then we'll be able to get that footage without needing to hold a casting on a half pipe.

Skateboarders

‘Riding a Skateboard doesn’t make you a Skateboarder. Being unable to stop riding a skateboard is what makes you a skateboarder’. Our skateboarders are popular in shoots, and again much like the BMX guys, we’ve got your everyday users to the cream of the crop professional skateboarders. Bonus; because a skateboard is quite portable there is always an option to double these guys up as mutliple roles when on set. One scene they could be doing a kickflip and the next they could be walking down the street - yes using their feet not wheels.

Circus Performers & Stunt Workers

If you need stilt walkers, fire eaters or breathers, aerialists, angle grinders or any other circus act or indeed stunt performers, we have access to these dare defying individuals. Let us know what you require and we can send you some amazingly talented individuals.

Many of our cast add as many strings to their bows as they can. Some call it greedy others call it being versitile. Many will be trained in a primary discipline, ie. acting or dancing, and add the stunt register to their CV through wanting to be available for as many roles as possible.

Stage Combat Training & Weapons Trained

For those scenes where you need highly skilled weapons experts or those who know how not to break their back when falling off a table (always helpful), ask us about our weapons trained folks and those trained in stage fighting. We're quite lucky to have people in the the TT family that we can throw through windows and smash wooden chairs over. Furthermore, we've helped quite a few to get on the stunt register and they've stayed on the books to be readily available when we need them.

Beat Boxers & DJ’s

Sometimes it is important to have someone who looks the part and at others it is important to have someone who can play the actual part. If your Production has the need for someone who knows how to get a party started and mix on the decks, make use of our real DJ’s. Or if you have a requirement for a beat boxer, we’ve got them too!

Parkour & Free Runners

‘Our aim is to take our art to the world and make people understand what it is to move’. There’s no doubt that Parkour is an art form. Watching these guys in full flight is an incredible sight. They always seem a millimetre away from a slip which would make any male grab their nether regions followed by an 'oooooh'. A rarity amongst the talents of minions, however we’ve got a few that certainly fit the flippin' bill if you need any.

Tap, Ballet, Ballroom, Salsa, Belly & Burlesque Dancers

Talent Talks is home to ALL types of dancers not just the more common dance styles. We have gifted male and female dancers of all ages who have the highest training at the most exclusive dance schools. Whatever your dancer requirements, we have it covered.

Break Dancers, Poppers, Lockers & Dance Troupes

Street and freestyle dancing is becoming more and more popular which is why this category of brilliant guys and girls deserves its own mention. Even more specific than the dance styles previously mentioned, we have our more extreme dance styles ready at your disposal.

Sign Language Interpreters

Another specific talent that we have on our books is knowing how to communicate between deaf and hearing people. We've found sign language is quite often used within music videos to add another layer of inclusivity but our interpreters are also able to use their skills for presenting and other requirements. We do have interpreters ready and certified to communicate, just communicate with us!

Magicians

‘Great Liars Are Also Great Magicians’... Who said that? Any takers? Well you wouldn’t have said Adolf Hitler would you! Well he did.

Magic has changed a bit since the days of pulling a rabbit out of a hat or making a glamorous assistant dissapear infront the audiences eyes. We now witness things that seem like they could never happen, true magic! We've even got street magicans who are able to reverse pick pocket your chosen card from their deck into your wallet. Ticksters galore all available right here as part of the family, and we've still got plenty of the old school too. If you want Magicians, **poof** we can make them appear.


Pet Owners

Our TT Family doesn’t just include adults and children, oh no. We’ve extended it to include our TT Animal Family, all furry, four legged friends (other animals are included). On several occasional our cast have attended set with their cats, dogs and even horses - no crocodiles or lizards yet but we are prepared for any eventuality!

Cheerleaders

"Give me a T, give me an A, give me an L", you get where this is going. At first you might not think it but cheerleaders are some of the most highly motivated, well trained and athletic sportspersons there are. It is most definitely a sport, we'd challenge anyone to do what they can. Talent Talks has access to practicing cheerleaders, male and female, and of various ages, including a whole team, that are ready to shake their pom poms, throw, flip and tumble their way onto set. Our cheerleaders are also versed in other skills, particularly dance so you may see them pop up in other places too!

Boxers

Don’t get caught with a sucker punch. If your shoot contains any sort of Boxing scenario, it's critical to ensure your Boxers make the weight - take a look at our selection of trained Boxers.

Boxing isn't something that can be faked very easily or very quickly, even the best of method actors will need to undergo months of training to get them rady for a part. We've got plenty of boxers with amateur and professional bout experience udnder their belts. Many have worked together on shoots already so can help everything run smoothly by choreographing a convincing routine for your shoot.

Basketball, Football & Rugby Players

Whether you need kickers of the round ball, throwers of the oval ball, or dunkers of the orange ball we’ve got experienced club players perfect for your shoots. We have recreational players, club players, semi-professional players and ex professional players who know their sports inside out.

Martial Arts Students, Instructors & Experts

If you require Judo, Karate or Taekwondo (and all the various other Martial Arts) students or even the highest level instructors and experts, we have them all ready to go. Martial Arts is a skill that cannot easily be mimicked or faked so why not get the real thing to add a level of realism to your shoot.

Swimmers & Divers

It’s important that if you have scenes of people swimming, the cast booked actually can swim. Insurance companies will testify to this! We have a wealth of recreational swimmers and divers as well as club swimmers and high board divers regularly competing in competitions. We even have certified deep sea divers, if you fancy cracking out the underwater cameras!

Strong Man Competitors / Wrestlers

Anyone need a boulder lifting onto a shoulder height pedestal, or a fully-grown man lifting onto something equally as high? Strong Man competitors and Wrestlers have their own category here at Talent Talks. We’ve seen the aesthetically pleasing Muscle Men, Fitness Model, Bodybuilder categories plus those who specialise in Martial Arts and Gymnastics that are full of strong males and females with amazing ability and talent. However, when it comes to the pure strength involved in picking up a car Strong Man is where it is at, unless there are genuine Superheroes around. Speaking of which, when it comes to amazing feats we must mention our crazy Wrestlers. We’ve got both of these wrapped up in a category package literally bursting at the seams.

Athletes: Track & Field

We have a variety of track and field athletes from recreational to club level. If you need sprinters, middle distance runners to long distance and marathon runners, we’ve got the lot. Throw in to the mix the field events as well, we have a whole TT Olympic team!

Skiers & Snowboarders

‘You can’t buy happiness but you can buy a lift pass’. Despite being "blessed" with some truly chilly weather in the UK we very rarely get the powder that these adreneline seekers crave. Fortunately our TT members know where to go for a big dump! If you need happy talented skiers and snowboarders complete with equipment, come slide over to us.


Ice Hockey Players, Ice Skaters & Figure Skaters

If you're a fan of visiting the pop up ice rinks over the festive period you may have already bumped into some of the guys in this category doing their off season part-time job stopping us mere ice amateurs from falling over, or just showing off! In the TT family we have lovers of all things ice...ice hockey players as well as champion ice and figure skaters. If you don’t want your Supporting Artists to look like Bambi on ice, then utilise our ice fanatics.

Cricketers, Cyclists & Golfers

More sportsmen and women with equipment here. We have club cricketers, cyclists that hit the road every day and golfers playing off single figure handicaps. Like all of our sports categorised people, they all have their individual sports equipment and clothing.

Hockey & Netball Players

We’ve previosuly worked on shoots requiring full teams for both Hockey and Netball so we've kept them within our sports ranks. They are more than happy to work on other Productions, why wouldn't they be? So, if you need a team or simply a few talented individuals, the TT Family can supply what you need.

Tennis, Badminton & Squash Players

Heading to the court? After talented racket sports players? Indoor or outdoor? Grass, Clay, Hard surface? Guess what... we’ve tennis, badminton and squash players playing at a variety of levels as required. From amateur through to professionals and coaches we can cater for your needs. Let us know the sport and we can provide TT members with experience, equipment and gear ready to show off their best serve, return and smash the job for you.

Weightlifters & Bodybuilders

The slightly larger species of human gives us the amazingly impressive category that takes strength to a level beyond our muscle men and fitness models. On our books, we have an array of competing male and female bodybuilders as well as dedicated weightlifters. If you ever need someone to lift a car or enormous boulder over their shoulder we know you can get them via us.

Rally Drivers & Super Bikers

Buckle up! Speedsters or Petrol Heads, whatever you want to call them, we have thrill seekers who love the speed! We have trained title holding Rally Drivers and several Super Bike enthusiasts, with some impressive bikes to bring along if required. In addition to individuals we have drivers who can bring pit teams and their own modified race day cars or qud bikers who can bring a crew. We really could supply you with the motors to rev up your production.

Sailing, Boating, Power Boats, Canoeists & Water Based

Row, row, row your boat..... or your power boat, or your canoe... in fact row, row, row whatever water based transport you need 'cos we'll probably have it! We’ve got water lovers in the TT Family too. If you need advisors, licenced drivers, instructors or water based enthusiasts, give us the brief and we’ll see what sea legs we have available.

Gymnasts

Next up in the TT Olympics. Should your Production require people to put their body in shapes that 99.99% of the world can’t, or do something amazingly gravity defying hang from rings for any reason, you’ll need some bendy, flexible and strong people. We have a fantastic group of Gymnasts for you to consider.

Surfers / Trampolinists

Two of the classical elements combined together with sporting ability in this category. Whilst one rides the waves on the water the other soars through the air. With the increasing popularity of trampoline parks around the UK it was only a matter of time before these guys bounced their way into a specialist category. Less obvious to be involved here would be the surfers but surprisingly, to add to the foreign import surfers, there is also an abundance of people from the UK that enjoy surfing the icy coastal waters. Who would have guessed? Just another example of Talent Talks being the place for any type of cast that may be needed.

Roller Bladers & Skaters

Cast that know what they’re doing on Roller Blades or Skates is probably quite important in any skating scenes on shoots, you don’t want to be booking Frank Spencer. In this instance, we’d suggest rolling on over to us and booking our capable cast. This is one of our categories that works in tendem with another. Quite often the ice loving skaters will also be accomplished roller bladers and skaters for practice and sporting reasons. Unfortunately it is not always a two way street so we're glad to have plenty of both.

People With Every Day Regular Jobs

One of the newest addition to our casting categories is our internal ‘Regular Job’ section. We know that not all of our models, actors and SAs are full time but that many also have regular jobs. We thought it was about time we gave them some recognition for being able to do what they do on a day to day basis. Our cast have appeared on set doing what they do as a "real" job. These include Chefs, Butchers, Carpenters, Shop Assistants, Hairdressers, Paramedics and even an Ironmonger!

Chaperones

To accompany our minis we can also provide fully registered and experienced Chaperones to look after the minors on set and ensure that the production is complying with the law and regulations. If parents can’t make or stay for the shoot, with a chaperone on set you’re covered by someone with the knowledge to help look after everything on set to do with the kids. Even if we’re not providing the children that are cast we can still provide the professional Chaperone(s) for your shoot.

Car and Bike Owners

People have modes of transport, and they often own them too! Our cast members are no different to other people in that respect. This category is to take advantage of the fact we have some of the most extravagant people in the country as part of the TT family. Their extravagance extends to their choices in motor vehicle. Be it a motorcar or motorbike our cast have some special pieces to show off within this category and all available to hire. We’ve got cast with normal cars that can be used on set too if that’s your thing.

Stand Ins

We know the importancy of Stand Ins for Music Promos, TV and Films, and having the correct Stand In can often be a critical part of the shoot. We've got Z-Cards of each and every member, that not only display a few pictures showing vital info such as skin tone and hair colour, but also includes the individuals heights and statistics. This way you can be sure that the stand in has the correct measurements for your Production.

Need a Stand In? Send us the stats that you need and we can get you some options pronto!
