Yn ol ym mhell yn y 70’au/80’au, roeddwn i’n ddigon lwcus i gael mynd i weld y pantomeim Cymraeg yn Theatr Clwyd bob blwyddyn – dyma lle ddechreuodd fy niddordeb mewn drama. Fe ymunais â’r Clwb Ieuenctid Theatr Clwyd am dair mlynedd ac ar ol gorffen fy lefel ‘A’, es i astudio Drama yng Ngholeg Brenhinol Cerdd a Drama Cymru.
Ar ol dychwelyd i fyw yng Nghaerdydd, wedi cyfnod o fod yn Llundain, fe gwrddais i â Leigh-ann a dechrau gweithio i’r asiantaeth.
Roedd hynny’n ol yn 2003…..’dwi’n dal yma ac wrth fy modd! x
It all began back in the 70’s/80’s when I used to be taken to see Theatre Clwyd’s Welsh language pantomime each year…..
I joined the Clwyd Youth Theatre for three years and after my ‘A’ levels, went to study Drama at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.
After returning to live in Cardiff after a stint living (it up) in London town, I met with Leigh-Ann and started working at Regan Management.
The rest, as they say is history!
A proud welsh speaking Valleys Girl I started my career studying a BA in Drama at The University of Wales in Cardiff. After finishing my degree I decided to explore the industry from behind the camera by working as production crew in Film & TV. I also had a stint of working in the Politics department at the BBC (yes, even I’m shocked that happened!). A chance encounter with Leigh-Ann turned in to a (so far) 6-year career within Regan Talent Group. I love how close we are as a company and we really love to get to know our clients to offer them the best possible representation.
On a personal note, I love the thought of owning a jet ski and being cooler than what I actually am. I look forward to the day I can change this bio to say ‘I now own a jet ski’.

Oliver has been annoying his parents since a young child. After dragging them to several West End shows throughout his childhood, he earned a Degree in Musical Theatre from Bird College, and went on to gain a Masters at the Royal Academy of Music. In 2019, he shelved his West End dreams, joined Regan Management and now loves helping clients achieve theirs. He now also enjoys annoying his workmates – giving his parents a well-rested break.
Emily has a degree in Business and Finance and is also a qualified ICB Bookkeeper. She started working for Regan in December 2015 and is responsible for the day to day financial operation of the company and most importantly pays the actors so is very important indeed. Be nice to her.
