Talent industry veterans Michael Duff, Conor McCaughan and Melanie Rockcliffe have formed a new London-based talent agency, Troika.

Troika will represent actors, comedians and presenters for film, TV and theatre work. The company's clients include Paul Bettany, Paddy Considine, Keeley Hawes, David Morrissey, Graham Norton, Matt Lucas and David Walliams.

"The new agency was borne out of their shared belief that artist representation in the UK can be revitalised to reflect the global nature of the business," the founders said.

Duff had been a director of Lou Coulson Associates, McCaughan previously worked at ICM, and Rockcliffe was head of Talkback Management.
