EXCLUSIVE: The UK representation scene was all abuzz about the next steps of respected former Troika co-founders Michael Duff and Conor McCaughan after they left their long-time agency back in 2020. We’re now getting more clarity on their next steps.
Duff has set up UK firm Maison Two, with a strong early client list, including Michaela Coel (I May Destroy You), Karen Gillan (Avengers: Endgame), Keeley Hawes (It’s A Sin), Maxine Peake (The Theory Of Everything), Matt Smith (Doctor Who), Juno Temple (Ted Lasso), Sophie Willan (Alma’s Not Normal) and House Of The Dragon and Line Of Duty casting director Kate Rhodes James.
Former Troika co-founder McCaughan co-reps Coel and is a collaborator at the new company. Doctor Who star Smith and Ted Lasso star Temple will be co-repped by Duff and Sarah Stephenson of B-Side Management. Stephenson and Duff previously worked together at Troika for a decade.
The independently financed, London-based company will have a managerial approach in style (though some clients are likely to still call their Maison Two reps their UK agent).
