In 1980, before any of today’s theatrical agencies had commercial representation or celebrity branding on their radar, Liz Dalling founded Special Artists Agency with partner, Marcia Hurwitz. Ms. Dalling focused on celebrity commercial representation and pioneered the use of Hollywood film talent in international advertising campaigns.
Today, Ms. Dalling functions as the CEO of Special Artists Agency and the Head of its International and Celebrity departments. She manages key external relationships with major advertising agencies, corporate buyers, celebrity film, television, music, sports and model talent. Likewise, with an expansive network of relationships in the major international centers, Tokyo, London, Paris and Milan, Ms. Dallling continues to broker big-ticket, big-name commercial deals for her “A” list clients. Her genuine love of talent is evident in her personalized approach to representation and deal-making.
Ms. Dalling’s success can be attributed to her favorite saying: “The harder I work, the luckier I get.” Originally from the United Kingdom, Ms. Dalling’s business often bring her back to London where she visits her only daughter, also now in the entertainment business and Paris where she can maintain her proficiency in French.
