A little bit about us....

BGT Actors Models & Talent is New Zealand’s leading film and TV talent agency established in 1998 by actress, accent coach, and former-casting director Sarah Valentine. When Lord of the Rings fever hit New Zealand, Sarah recruited over 300 extras in preparation. The agency she always wanted to start, to help other people's dreams come true, was then formed as Background Talent. In 2015 a name ‘tweak’ to BGT heralded the new face of a highly regarded agency with an unsurpassed reputation to encompass the three divisions of Actors, Models and Talent/extras.

Based in the thriving hub of West Auckland, right next to Auckland Film Studios, BGT pride itself on a professional, ethical, friendly and attentive approach to talent casting. We supply talent for local and overseas TV series, short and feature films, music videos, documentaries and TV commercials for the national and international markets. If it’s shot in New Zealand, we usually have someone, somewhere being something.
