About

Starfish Kids is Sydney’s premier agency for talent representation for babies, toddlers, children, teens and real families. We are trusted for our personalised and professional service and recognised for our commitment to delivering quality talent and opportunities. Our kids have worked across a broad range of roles, from advertising campaigns to television and feature films.

A boutique agency with a heart for kids

At Starfish Kids, we see our boutique size as our greatest strength. Why? Because it means we can offer your child or teen personalised service and genuine care.

We strictly limit the numbers on our books, because it’s our desire to see each and every one of our Starfish Kids succeed. The best way to do this is to work with you one-on-one, and we won’t ever conduct an interview over the phone or email. We’re proud to say that the majority of our Starfish Kids will receive work within their first twelve month contract.

Trusted by the industry as a leading children’s talent agency

Starfish Kids was established over a decade ago and is run by Michelle Lawson and Hannah Boffa, both of whom have a strong background in television and film production. Since that time, we’ve developed a strong reputation among leading brands, advertising agencies, directors, casting agents and productions houses. They trust us for the quality of our talent as well as our professional approach.

Our clients include some of the biggest and best in the business from David Jones, Just Jeans, Big W, Nickelodeon, to name just a few, and our kids have even worked on major features films such as Wolverine and The Great Gatsby.

Professionalism built on first-hand experience

We’re mums ourselves, with children that have worked in the industry. This means we understand the process and demands of the business. Because we’ve been through it, we can offer advice based on our past experiences if needed.

We make it our priority to work with our Starfish Kids and their families closely and we keep you informed every step of the way about what’s required.

We’d love to hear from you

We’re always interested to hear from new talent and we’ll make the time to chat about the possibilities for your child or family.

If you’re an advertiser, production house or casting agency and haven’t worked with us before, we’re happy to take you through the range of quality talent available.
