Sarah Churm

Sarah trained at the Nottingham Television Workshop before getting her first acting break as Sarah Braithwaite in ITV’s BAFTA nominated At Home With the Braithwaites. She continued to act for over 10 years on stage and screen, including roles in Utopia (Channel 4), Sweet Medicine (ITV) and Love Soup (BBC). During her time as an actor, Sarah was represented by Mark and the team at Pemberton Associates!

In a change of direction, she was offered an internship at Jane Lehrer Associates theatrical agency in London. She quickly became Jane’s assistant and her love for this side of the business flourished. Over the next 8 years Sarah became a Senior Agent/Associate and developed her own talented list. She particularly enjoyed finding new talent and nurturing their careers. When Jane retired in 2018, Sarah set up her own agency representing young actors and completed her English Literature Degree with a First Class Honours.

In 2022, Sarah was thrilled to join Pemberton Associates as an agent and become part of the team.
