Some of whom we work with:
Jonathan Arun - Owner / Director
JONATHAN ARUN is a native of Dublin, Ireland who has lived in London for over thirty five years. During this time he has built up his experience as an agent, beginning as an Associate Agent at Jessica Carney Associates. After five years, in 2004 Jonathan moved to Vivien Wilde Ltd where he was able to set up his own list.
In 2007 Jonathan decided it was time to open his own agency Jonathan Arun Ltd. As a former actor (from a very young age) and with a successful career behind him, Jonathan brings a unique perspective with his approach to both actors and casting directors. Of course, his BA(hons) in Psychology from London Guildhall University also proves handy from time to time!jonathan @ jag-london.com
Amy O'Neill - Senior Agent / Director
AMY O'NEILL has worked alongside Jonathan for the last nine years. She is originally from Liverpool and trained as an actor at Mountview Academy of Arts, performing for many years before discovering her love for the other side of the industry.
Amy worked as an assistant for various TV casting directors, as well as casting theatre productions, including a show at the Arcola Theatre. She then worked as an agent at IT&M before joining Jonathan and is approaching a decade of working alongside him. Amy is now a director of the company and runs her own client list under JAG, assisted by Rachel Chambers.
When not in the office, or the theatre, Amy enjoys beach holidays, fine wine and Terry’s chocolate orange.amy @ jag-london.com
Max Latimer - Agent
MAX LATIMER graduated from the Arts University Bournemouth in 2011 with a BA (Hons) degree in Acting. He worked as an actor both in the UK and abroad, but was curious to see what life was like on the other side of the table. He joined Jonathan Arun in 2014 on a three-month internship, however, after five days Jonathan decided to make it a permanent position. He now works alongside Jonathan and Amy as an Agent and is very much a part of the furniture.max @ jag-london.com
