JANET DU PLESSIS (Founding member 1996)

BA Drama and English (RHODES University) , BA Hons Communication (UNISA )

Janet spent 2 valuable decades as an actress working dominantly in Johannesburg. She was fortunate to work with acting legends like Antony Quinn , Rex Garner and Simon Sabela in theatre, radio drama and Film/TV. Moving to Cape Town in 1992, Janet joined Pieter Toerien Productions as Pieter’s publicist at THE THEATRE ON THE BAY and is very grateful to him for that grounding in the business side of the industry. Together with her previous acting agent, Penny Charteris - a legend in herself - Janet opened Artistes Personal Management cc post 1994 when international work started to flow into Cape Town.


She is very privileged to be partnered now by such an experienced team of agents at APM and for APM to represent the exceptional and dedicated professional actors that are on our books .

Coslyn Schippers

COSLYN ADAMS (Member. Joined 2007)

Diploma in Business Management (Cape Technikon)

Coslyn started her career at Bush Radio; a community radio station, where she developed not only professional skills, but life lessons that one is rarely exposed to in the corporate world.

Thereafter she did a few creative life learning projects; youth exchange programmes in Canada, producing a quirky music video, freelancing at an Extras agency, working at a recording studio in Gardens where she corresponded quite frequently with the ladies at APM. Always loving and wanting to be a part of the entertainment industry’s heartbeat, she found her niche behind the scene when joining APM.

“I’ve learned that there is a huge importance in the People Behind the Scenes, those that maintain calm in the storm and order in our chaos.”
