Production and distribution outfit, DLT Entertainment, has added actors’ agent Ellie Cahill-Nicholls to its group of agencies which include Andrew Roach Talent, The Galton Agency, Blue Book Artist Management, and Gag Reflex.

Cahill-Nicholls will represent her own acting clients as well as the company’s roster of comedy writers and performers and screen writers, ranging from stand-up to sketch.

Joining the DLT group with 10 years’ experience in the talent management industry, Cahill-Nicholls comes from Noel Gay where she was responsible for growing their client base, spotting fresh and upcoming talent, and was the lead agent for a diverse portfolio of actors, comedians, writers, directors, and presenters since 2017.  Prior to Noel Gay, she worked at Avalon Management and Dawn Sedgwick Management.  Her client credits include a mixture of TV, film and theatre including Dear Evan Hansen (West End), Mary Poppins (West End), The Mousetrap (West End), Call The Midwife (BBC), Trying (Apple TV), Call My Agent (Amazon Prime) Grantchester (ITV), After Life (Netflix), and feature film The King’s Man – the third film in the Kingsman franchise, plus multiple Commercial Campaigns including Hello Fresh, Nescafe, USwitch and Barclays.

Donald Taffner Jr., President of DLT Entertainment, said: “Ellie’s experience will undoubtedly bring a fresh perspective to DLT’s group of agents and expand the company into new areas of representation alongside our existing clientele. She is very talented in her field and with her on the team, our overall talent management offering will progress to target a much wider network.”

Ellie Cahill-Nicholls added: “I’m delighted to be joining DLT’s group of agents at this exciting time and look forward to building on the great work already taking place with so many brilliant artists. As the theatre and television industries begin to recover and rejuvenate after the past eighteen months, there is so much to do and so many outstanding people raring to go. It will be a privilege to work alongside them at DLT.”

DLT continues its role as owner and manager of the largest independent theatre in the West End, the Shaftsbury Theatre, where hit musical & Juliet reopened September 24th to sell out audiences.
