Among Collier’s long-term Tavistock Wood clients not currently listed for representation on Chalcot’s website are Alicia Vikander and Lily James. Both continue to be repped by UTA.
Chalcot, which also comprises lawyer Cornelius Medvei and agent Eleanor Johnson, will also produce, provide legal consultancy and branding services.
The website states: “We are a management company, talent agency and production hub, representing actors, directors, producers and writers…We represent creators across arts and media in all sectors of the industry. We provide bespoke personal management, strategic advice, legal consultancy, business affairs and production services to ensure that our clients accomplish their ambitions and become meaningful creative partners across every aspect of their work. We are a boutique management company and talent agency, entirely owner led and managed.”
Collier is an associate producer on hit UK TV series Top Boy and was a producer on Alicia Vikander movie Euphoria. Chalcot’s site notes that it is “partnered with production companies, many of which operate under the creative leadership of its clients”. Among the partner production banners listed on the site are Vikander’s Vikarious Film.
Collier set up Tavistock Wood with former partner Angharad Wood in 2005. The company sold a majority stake to Curtis Brown in 2018. Curtis Brown was acquired by UTA in 2022.
Collier, UTA and Curtis Brown declined to comment. Variety was first to report the news.
