About agency Oakroyd

One of the most well respected agencies in Yorkshire and the North. Casting from their own book of supporting artists, Paula has been living and breathing casting for 20 years including nearly a decade at ITV before establishing her independent agency. With experience of Supporting Artistes & walk-ons both on-set and through her agency, Paula knows just what’s needed to get the job done.


Paula was outstanding for me on Peaky Blinders; she was quick, efficient and always just a phone call away. If someone ended up not being there she would always have a replacement lined up in minutes. She’s got a great manner, so she’s one of the first agencies I think to use as I genuinely like her as a person.

Paula and agency Oakroyd is one of the most professional supporting artists’ agents in Yorkshire. Paula was a pleasure to work with on Ackley Bridge; she provided an array of SAs throughout the series and they were professional and reliable on-set. I have no hesitation in recommending Paula and agency Oakroyd for your crowd requirements in Yorkshire and beyond.
