Neelam Bakshi, a talented actress known for her diverse roles in television, film, and animated shorts, has had a successful career in large part due to the support of London-based talent agency BBA Management, led by founder and senior agent Bronia Buchanan.
BBA Management represents a select list of exceptional actors and creatives in theatre, films, and television. Bakshi, who recently appeared in the smash streaming hit Ted Lasso, is one of the agency’s most sought-after clients.
“The team is wonderful,” says Bakshi. “They’re very supportive. They’re caring. They’re respectful and they’re extremely professional. And they’re very busy. But even if they’re busy, they have time. Initially, we used to meet frequently just to see where we were at … They’re very mindful of what I want to do and they push me in every direction … I was very impressed with Bronia and her team.”
The agency has been instrumental in helping Bakshi land roles in some of her favourite projects, including Better, Sweetness in the Belly, and Cha, a BAFTA-long-listed animated short. BBA Management supports Bakshi throughout the casting process.
The casting process has become increasingly online centred and many auditions now take place over Zoom or via videos. BBA Management takes care of all the contractual aspects, making sure Bakshi is well prepared.
BBA Management’s clients have had numerous successes, and Bakshi is no exception. The agency’s support has been invaluable in helping Bakshi progress her career, and she credits BBA Management’s team for helping her prepare for roles and achieve her on-screen successes.
