Denis Halligan // Agent

Jobbing acTOR was founded in 2015 by Award Winning Actor/Director Denis Halligan. Initially a self taping service and recording studio, the company evolved into an agency in response to the growth of the creative industries in Belfast, and the need for an agency that truly understands the needs of Actors.

What Qualifies Denis to be an agent? Having worked as a professional Actor for 10 years, and an Award Winning Writer/Director for 5 - Denis is in an unrivalled position when it comes to understanding what an Actor needs from their Agent. Couple that with his experience behind the camera, and you've got Jobbing acTOR.

Karen Hawthorne // Agency assistant

Having worked as a professional Actor for many years, Karen is more than empathetic to the needs of Actors. Her considerable experience working in Administration, for Local Arts Organisations, has given her a unique appreciation for clear and concise information, and planning.

People are always going to look, so you may as well give them something worth watching...

What makes jobbing actor different? 

  • Jobbing Actors don't pay for Headshots, Showreels or Voicereels - we look after that, in house.

  • Self Tape Due? - No Problem. Simply call into our Botanic Avenue studio and we'll look after the rest, Free of Charge.

  • Personal Development plans - at Jobbing acTOR we believe in Transparency, so upon signing with the agency we fill out a Personal Development Plan - that sets out what you would like to achieve in the year ahead.

  • Transparency. At Jobbing Actor we encourage our talent to call into our city centre studio, at anytime, to discuss how we're managing your career.

  • Trust - Our team has over 40 years experience in the performing arts, we've been in the trenches and speak from experience. It's a joy and an honour to be entrusted with the professional development of so much talent.
