Success Stories

 

Teresa Palmer

Former Elite Ensemble student Teresa Palmer was destined to be famous says agent Richard Laidlaw "I knew when I put her forward for Power Ranges and she narrowly missed winning a role she was destined for fame." However it wasn't long before he would get her an opportunity to audition again where Teresa would nail the audition winning a supporting role on DECEMBER BOYS opposite Daniel Radcliff (Harry Potter) launching her internationally. This was immediately followed by a lead role in the international box office hit 2:37, these two roles changing her life for ever. "I remember negotiating these deals was no easy task, as the producers had so many actors to choose from, however with a bit of negotiation I secured contracts in both these films for her" says Richard Laidlaw.
