Meet the team

Mark Potts

Managing Director

Mark started his career in the casting environment in 1997 with his time working for music guru Nigel Martin Smith who created and mastered the fame of Take That. Prior to this, Mark also worked for various production companies including LWT in London where he worked on productions such as ‘An Audience with the Spice Girls’ and ‘An Audience with Kylie Minogue’.

Mark left NMS Management in 2002 where he went on to set up a successful casting agency alongside an existing model agency. Wanting to spread his wings and go it alone he left there in 2012 and set up Mint Casting, which is one of the most respected agencies in the North West.

Nathan Beattie

Senior Casting Agent

Nathan started his career in Casting back in 2000 in Sydney, Australia where he worked for Alison Barrett Casting as a Casting Associate – working with the likes of Naomi Watts, Rose Byrne and Sam Worthington.

Nathan then returned back to the UK where he went on to work for JB Associates for 6 years representing actors. He then went on to manage the Casting desks at Modelplan Management (Manchester & London), PHA Model & Casting Agency and then running his own Casting division at Scream Management for over 3 years at Media City. Nathan joined team Mint back in 2014 and has never looked back.

Kerry Mellor

Casting Agent

Kerry is our newest member to the team joining us in June 2022.

As an experienced artiste herself for the last 4 years, Kerry’s ‘on set’ knowledge stands her in good stead for what we think will be an assett to her training on the other side of the desk.

She makes a damn good Northern brew as well – which is an even better assett 🙂

Suzanne Hall

Acting Coach

Suzanne has worked with Mint since we started in 2012. Suzanne also has an impressive acting CV – she has played several featured roles: including 3 years on Coronation Street as Kimberley Taylor, and subsequently 7 years on Hollyoaks as Suzanne Ashworth. Suzanne returned to our Screens on Hollyoaks in January 2024 reprising her role as Suzanne Ashworth.

Suzanne went on to be Head of Drama at Our Lady & St Johns in Blackburn. She is also a Patron at St Patricks High School in Winton. Suzanne runs our adult  workshops and internal assessments here at the agency.

Yvonne Goldsmith-Rybka

Accounts Manager

Yvonne joined the Mint team in 2017. Yvonne has a wealth of bookkeeping experience after running several of her own businesses in the food and drink industry.

Yvonne also works for OutdoorLads charity, is a freelance food writer, and loves to walk in the great outdoors.

She is yet to master the art of a good brew, but there’s always room for improvement!! 🙂


Sarah Jones


Sarah’s photography is influenced by her early years as a dance photographer and her passion for old films, art and fashion.
