FOUNDER & AGENT
Leigh-Ann Regan trained at Mountview Theatre School and upon graduating went into the West End in productions such Les Miserables and Fame. After a successful acting career and whilst still performing in the West End, she set up Regan Management.
23 years on Regan Talent Group is still Leigh-Ann’s first passion – alongside her three children, partner, two stepchildren, four dogs, two cats and 12 chickens!
Leigh-Ann also runs LARCA (Leigh-Ann Regan Casting Associates). Most recently LARCA cast Life and Death in the Warehouse for BBC3 / BBC Wales directed by Joseph Bullman (The Left Behind, Bafta Winner 2020), which was nominated for Single Drama at the 2023 BAFTA Awards and Television Drama at the 2022 BAFTA Cymru Awards.
Leigh-Ann was the Casting Director at Theatr Clwyd Cymru under Terry Hands for 10 years with over 50 productions under her belt from Shakespeare to Chekhov, Sondheim to Ed Thomas. TV casting credits include The Bastard Executioner (FOX TV) directed by Paris Barclay (Glee) and Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy); Caerdydd (S4C), Y Pris (S4C) Pen Talar (S4C) – all directed by Ed Thomas at Fiction Factory.

Leigh-Ann, alongside Geraint Hardy, founded Regan Developments in 2019 and the company went on to win the BAFTA Cymru Award for Feature/Television Film for their debut feature GRAV (S4C) directed by Marc Evans.
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’.
Geraint has worked in the media for 15 years, since leaving LIPA in 2006. He has won 2 Arqiva ‘Best Breakfast’ Awards (2014 and 2016) from his days as a host on Capital Breakfast. He also won a BAFTA Cymru for a Documentary on Alcoholism in 2014. He’s constantly trying to get the office engaged and enthused about sport but sadly is failing miserably.
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.
Nuala has known since she was seven that she wanted to work in the stage and screen industries, working with actors and being involved in various productions. She has trained at the Young Actor’s Studio at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Guildhall and LAMDA. Nuala studied BA Drama and Theatre Arts at Goldsmiths University of London, before completing her Masters in Film Directing at USW where she realised she loved the casting process and connecting actors to various projects and roles. She has recently joined Regan this year as an Agent’s Assistant!
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.
Gareth graduated with a 1st class degree in Acting from Rose Bruford College in 2006. To accompany his Acting work, Gareth trained in Digital Production and has taken charge of all digital aspects of Regan Talent Group.
