Susan J. Talent Management Opens Up Office in L.A.

By Anne Laszlo Howard

Los Angeles, CA (rushprnews) - The founder of Susan J. Model and Talent Agency, Susan J. Burych who discovered Supermodel Daria Werbowy took pride when her discovery was appointed to Executive Producer of an upcoming film to be shot in B.C. It came as no surprise to her, since from the beginning, she predicted that Daria's career would expand from modeling to the film industry.

Then again, her joy and support for young talent Joseph Zita obtaining a principal role in "Firehouse Dog" as a Spanish boy are as real. After all, she was the one who nurtured the great potential in Joseph being cast among others as a Hispanic character. These are just two examples amongst many of the known success by past and present Susan J's clients. This success prompted her to open a Los Angeles branch after ten years in Toronto.

"We felt that with the level of success our agency was having in Toronto that it was time to expand our search for new talents to Los Angeles," explained Susan J. "I discovered Daria and see how well she is now doing. We are reciprocating that kind of achievement across the board."

Strong from her Toronto model and talent agency's success, Susan J. launched in February 2007, a Los Angeles branch to better serve her existing clients and to gain Hollywood momentum.

SHOW ME THE MONEY: "That's what Susan J. Burych, who owns a boutique model and talent agency in Toronto, told IMG Models regarding model-of-the-moment Daria Werbowy. Under Burych's guidance, the young Werbowy was introduced to the world of modeling and, eventually, to the big firms, like IMG".

Simply known in Los Angeles as Susan J. Talent Agency, the agency will represent not only American actors but also music artists and writers. For instance, one of the music artist associated with the agency is Gene Anderson a.k.a. Poo Poo Man best known for collaborating with Duke Ellington, All Green and Ann Peebles. Susan J. sees great venues opening up for him under her care.

 Additionally, she represents actor Kenneth John McGregor. McGregor plays the lead role in the feature film "The Greek American" to be released fall 2007. Other newcomers to her roaster of American clients are Serena Viharo whose father is Robert Viharo in the Quentin Tarantino's new film "Grind House" and actor Anthony Pena from "The Young and the Restless".

Ten years in this business is an accomplishment that comes with determination, hard work and most importantly, a proven vision. With the expansion into the American market and her two daughters involved with the agency and running departments of their own, Susan J. has launched not only an agency but created a legacy with many years ahead. Keeping the pulse on the youth culture, she recently signed two up-and-coming music artists, rapper Marlon Francis and R & B Lincoln Blache.
