Established in 2012 by Robert Wilkinson, RED Talent Management has quickly become the Midlands’ premier actors and creatives agency, offering a personal and professional service, providing actors and creative talent for theatre, film, television, radio, and the corporate world. The agency can also help with putting teams together for the whole creative process, from writing through to development, casting and production.

Since 1991, Robert has been a freelancer working across all disciplines in the business, including The Cheeky Chappies, for which he writes and performs with his partner Paul Nolan. Robert has an MA in TV Scriptwriting from De Montfort University and is pursuing this avenue further. He is also chair of Live and Local, an Arts Council funded organisation promoting rural touring across seven Midlands counties.

Mallory joined the RED Talent team as in intern in 2014, brining with her a bucket load of enthusiasm, a love of actors and what they do, and a passion for film making, writing, comedy and television.
In the summer of 2015, the award winning Red Production Company made another landmark show “Danny and The Human Zoo”
A fictionalised TV film of Sir Lenny Henry’s life as a teenager in 1970s Dudley, it was a landmark for RED Talent too. Half of the actors in this production photo are from RED Talent. Taylia-May Campbell (far left) Trique Douglas (front left), Brenton Hamilton and Tyrese McKenzie (far right), and Kascion Franklin (front far right) in the title role. The cast also included RED actors Dayna Bateman, Richard Boland, Tom Briggs, Michael Crump, Tonia Daley Campbell, Jahni Dyer, Troy Hewitt, Marlene McKenzie and Kaine Zajaz. We also helped them find a Jazz Band, a ventriloquist, a magician, a mime artist and a contortionist, and the official choreographer on the film was our wonderful Sophie Abercrombie.
