With over 30 years of experience in the entertainment industry, Mary Liz White has a passion for talent management running through her veins.
Not only did she spend many years as a performer, Mary Liz also has a wealth of commercial knowledge gained from working with organisations including Filmbank Media, Warner Bros, Buena Vista International (Disney), Columbia TriStar, Mill Mountain Theatre (Virginia, USA), English National Opera and The Bridewell Theatre.
Throughout her academic journey at East 15 Acting School, Mikaela immersed herself in diverse forms of performance, both Western and non-Western, cultivating a rich tapestry of skills and a holistic approach to performance. During her studies, she travelled to Moscow, Russia to train in Meyerhold’s Biomechanics and Chekhov with Stanislavski technique.
Upon graduating, Mikaela recongised her passion for nurturing emerging talent and after working as an actor, Mikaela transitioned into a pivotal role of Associate Agent at Mary Liz Management in 2020. Beyond her role with Mary Liz Management, Mikaela has worked as a casting assistant and is an Associate Director of Project Lockout, a dynamic cinematic physical theatre company. She dedicates her free time to crafting compelling short films for their spin-off collective, Project 48, one of which was awarded Best Film in the Ealing 48 Hour film festival. In her time away from working towards one of these pursuits, you will most likely find her walking her dog, who she will never fail to talk about at any opportunity!
