Agent & Associate to MD Stuart Piper and leads on her own select client list

Brooke Kinsella is an actress turned agent who trained at the Anna Scher Theatre School and got her first break at the age of seven when she won the lead role in BBC children’s series Mud. Over the years she has appeared in many TV dramas such as Law & Order, Jericho and Holby City and in 2004 became a household name when she landed the role of Kelly Taylor in EastEnders.

She has also performed extensively on stage and most recently worked with the legend that is Alan Ayckbourn in ‘Roundelay.’ In recent years Brooke has become known for her avid campaigning against knife crime after her sixteen year old brother Ben was tragically murdered in 2008 and in December 2011 she was awarded an MBE by Prince Charles for her services to knife crime.

Brooke is also a published author having written a book called ‘Why Ben?’ which was published by Simon & Schuster in 2009 and which sold 20,000 copies in its first week of release. In January 2010 Brooke also realised a life-long ambition by opening her own theatre school and agency for children aged 5-16 years called True Stars Academy, which gives young people the confidence and tools to develop their talents in acting, dancing and singing.

Last year Brooke joined the team at Cole Kitchenn as an associate agent to Stuart Piper and is excited to be establishing her own client list.

Brooke is an Agent and Associate to MD Stuart Piper and also leads on her own select client list, assisted by Alexandra MacMillan.
