Jo Southwell established Aston Management in 2008 along side Aston Productions. Her main aim was to create an agency that worked with and for its clients, with a collaborative approach to their career and ambition.
14 years later, Aston Management is part of a creative media company that works with talent in front and behind the camera; on stage, with voice and new forms of digital storytelling.
A boutique agency representing fresh new talent alongside established actors across all genres.
“Big enough to compete – small enough to care.”
Guy grew up in Leeds to an artistic family. He studied painting at Chelsea College of Art, and continues to paint to this day. He has always been involved in the Fine Arts, whether as a sole practitioner, or for notable others. He has been making/ fixing/ selling art, which he says, “is the perfect counter balance to the world of acting.”
“As a ‘non-performer’ throughout this period, I’ve spent a lot of time working alongside actors, across stage and screen, even spending a couple of seasons with Opera North in Yorkshire. I’m a fan of it all. Also, having an actor brother, I’m acutely aware of the commitments you’ve had to make to pursue this career. I aim to mirror this dedication to help our actors to continue and flourish!”
With over 15 years of working in the industry, I am returning to Aston Management as an Agent, to assist with the growing client base and to help actors achieve their potential on screen and in the theatre.
I am a trained photographer and have a passion for all things industry based, with a strong connection to screen.
