Two agents from elite talent agency Shanahan Management have parted ways with the company and opened their own agency, taking several high profile clients along with them.

Lee-Anne Higgins and Natasha Harrison left Shanahan last week and have opened United Management with former RGM and Alchemy Artists agent, Trish McAskill.


At the time of writing, 15 former Shanahan clients were listed on casting website Showcast as belonging to United Management.

Actors that have migrated to the new agency include Asher Keddie (Offspring, Paper Giants), Maeve Dermody (Griff the Invisible), Pia Miranda, (Surviving Georgia, Looking for Alibrandi), Anthony Hayes (The Slap, Killing Time), Rodger Corser (Rush, The Cup) and Dan Wyllie (Burning Man, The Hunter).

When contacted, Shanahan confirmed the shake up had taken place, but did not make further comment.
