Jane Murray-Watson and Louise Difford are lead agents and creative directors at both JL Associates and The Young Actors Agency.
Together they combine 50 years of experience working across a broad spectrum of the entertainment industry, giving them an innate and comprehensive understanding of the business; both how it works and the emotional strains it puts upon the individual. This enables them to support each of their clients individually – as mentors as well as agents.
Jane has worked as an Actress and Producer, producing over seventeen theatre productions before becoming an agent. She co-founded the The Young Actors Group School with her husband, Ben in 2014. Jane trained at Arts Ed in London.
Louise has worked as Theatre Stage Manager, TV Production Coordinator, and Marketing and Media Coordinator for Theatre Consultancy, Charcoalblue before also becoming an agent. Louise trained at Rose Bruford in Kent.
