Jackson Foster was set up by Jerry and Liz Chubb in 2016. Liz has over 30 years experience working within the performance arts industry as an actress, director, producer, writer and teacher. As a director, Liz saw a gap in the market as she frequently came across very strong actors who, for whatever reason, did not have good representation. Jackson Foster was set up to fill this gap. Jerry had just left the City after 30 years working in banking and financial services. His business skills together with Liz’s desire to get talented actors the kind of work they are worthy of, gave Liz and Jerry the impetus to set up Jackson Foster as an agency dedicated to providing strong and professional performers to the theatre, television and film industry.
