Louise Dyson's VisABLE People agency is the world's first to supply disabled actors, presenters and models to the advertising industry, television and film companies, radio and theatre.
In 1994 Louise Dyson began integrating disabled actors, presenters and models into mainstream advertising and media campaigns.
1994 - Louise Dyson got together with DN magazine and Sunrise to identify disabled actors, presenters and models with the potential to work within the industry, and suitable actors, presenters and models were invited to join the long established Louise Dyson Agency.
VisABLE is the name subsequently chosen, to portray disabled people as empowered individuals, as ABLE actors, presenters and models.
Louise Dyson's VisABLE now regularly supplies actors, presenters and models with disabilities to the BBC, Channel 4 and ITV, for roles in drama and comedy and to film companies for films, cinema and television commercials, voice artistes for radio commercials and Radio 4 drama.
Their success - VisABLE is responsible for booking long term disabled artists
(actors, presenters and models) for roles in dozens of popular television
series... Hollyoaks, Casualty, The Bill, Eastenders Doctors, Silent Witness, William & Mary, Holby City, Call the Midwife, Downton Abbey, CBBC Sparticle Mystery and New Tricks,
to name but a few. Louise Dyson's VisABLE has also provided disabled artists for comedy roles in
the likes of My Family, AbFab, Life's Too Short, Extras, Bad Education, White Van Man, Derek and Little Britain,
the Channel 4 Comedy series 'I'm Spazticus' and for the Best Short Film winner 'Talk'.
Louise Dyson's VisABLE represents highly motivated artists with disabilities of all ages but above all, abilities, including acting, modelling and presenting, many of whom have a decade or more of professional work under their belt, plus award-winning sportspeople, including World Champions and Paralympic medallists.
Publicity - dozens of television documentaries and interviews have been broadcast about the VisABLE initiative for disabled actors, presenters and models, together with virtually every broadsheet, such as the Times, the Independent and glossy magazines such as Elle, Marie Claire. Most of the UK television channels
(and many overseas) have filmed interviews and documentaries about the original idea of the Louise Dyson VisABLE People Agency, which have been broadcast on prime time TV in the USA, Japan, Russia, Germany and Italy.
Travel is never a problem; while most of our work (along with the majority of
our disabled artists) tends to be London based, we have disabled actors,
presenters and models all over the UK and they mostly get themselves to wherever
the work is.
