The Soho Film & Media Agency

A fully-integrated packaging agency spepcialising in representing actors and writers and providing casting services to the film & TV industries.

Actors Representation

With our talent agency headquartered in London, and with an office in Vienna, we specialise in representing international talent for film, TV and theatre.

Talent Management

We work across a range of disciplines in the entertainment industry and enjoy developing and packaging projects with, and for, all our clients across Europe.

Casting Agents

In Europe we act as casting agents for film & TV productions, specialising in sourciing both local and international talent for English-language productions.


We now represent a select number of authors and screenwriters whose work we believe has great potential for adaptation for film and TV series.

Lee Thomas

Lee has more than 43 years experience in the media industry, and has worked exclusively for himself or his own companies since 1987. As a publisher, he founded the Auto Classic newspaper in 1989 and subsequently freelanced for The Independent and the Daily Express. He wrote his first feature film screenplay in 1999 and went on to found Soho Films in 2003, with offices in London and LA, and then Soho Film & Media Ltd two years later. Lee helped produce a number of feature and short films before becoming an agent in 2009 through SFM Management - initially for producers and directors - before expanding to handle his growing list of actors in what is now The SFM Agency. In 2011 he acquired the London-based talent agency Actors International Ltd and since 2012 has split his time between London and Vienna with offices in both capitals.
