Melanie Hawthorne-Toogood

Manager / Senior Agent


Melanie has over 25 years experience as a senior-level agent developing, managing and accelerating careers of Lead actors (Series Leads, Feature Film Leads, Recurring Guest Stars and more) for bookings in Canada, the U.S. and abroad.  She also represents a select roster of top-booking Commercial and Voice actors.


Lead clients describe Melanie as "Fierce", "Supportive", "Reliable", "Unmatched", "Master Connector",  "Passionate",  "Assertive", "Outstanding Communicator", "A privilege to work with", (and she got a kick out of this one, from multiple clients... "Badass"!).
