Meet the Graduates

Meet the Graduates

Our Membership team has worked tirelessly to create a Scheme that brings 2020 Graduates into the Rogues and Vagabonds family. With the current tumultuous nature of the industry most 2020 graduates were facing an ever increasing uphill climb to find representation, our hope is that this scheme has provided a ski-lift of sorts.

We are thrilled to introduce Ela, Juliet and Tom!
To get to know them better we asked them some hard hitting investigative questions, the answers to which have only led to many many more questions…

Ela Portnoy

What was the last film you saw that began with a G? –  “The last film I saw the began with a G is “Go Fish” – a 1994 low budget lesbian ICON of a film and currently my favourite. ”

What song describes your vibe in the kitchen ? – “I actually have a whole playlist of kitchen vibes music, but I’d pick “my baby just cares for me” by Nina Simone.”

Tom graduated from the Oxford School of Drama in September (mid pandemic) for which he is exceptionally proud and engages in a lot of cold water therapy – taking dips midwinter in a freezing cold river is his idea of ‘relaxation’. He is also a tremendous Tom Hardy fan, and shall work alongside him one day.
