Trevor Snarr, Actor - "Napoleon Dynamite," Disney's: "Minutemen," & "Dadnapped"
"Liz Knight has been a great agent to work with for the past 4 years. She definitely goes the extra mile for her talent! She is always updating her talent with respect to auditions, acting classes and how to market yourself to better further your career. Very professional and fun to work with at the same time. You get the best of both worlds when working with Knightstar Talent."

Carolyn Lundberg - Actor, Model, Voice Talent, Host (Winder Dairy, Living Scriptures)
"After working in the industry with several agencies, I feel so lucky to be represented by Knightstar. They truly give personal attention that has propelled my career. You're not just treated like a number, you get real one-on-one time with the person at the top. Liz goes the extra mile to help you develop as a marketable actor. She's all about getting her talent real work, not just churning people for classes or sign-up fees. And when you need a bulldog in your corner to take care of you, Knightstar gets the job done!"

Chris Gann - LA & UT Actor, Host, Model, Stunt double -
"I came to Utah after working in entertainment for the past 12 years in Hollywood. I needed an agent who understood my travel schedule and who would get to know me and my specific talents. After meeting with all the top agents (including Knightstar) in the Salt Lake area, I chose Knightstar. Liz Knight showed me a passion for the entertainment industry that I have not seen in years working in LA. She is honest, hard working, and dedicated to her talent. We started working right away and all the clients that I worked with mentioned how much they enjoyed working with Liz. I only wish there were agents like Knightstar in Hollywood. Thanks Liz"

"About Liz Knight. I wish I could choose more than just three attributes. I had an idea for a workshop I wanted to do. But ideas are common. What is uncommon is to find someone who can help the idea become reality. That's Liz. She was great. Organized. Energetic. Knowledgeable. She took my idea, added to it, and ran with it. Many, many thanks to a great talent. Michael - The Actors Workshop." Top Qualities: Great Results, Personable, Creative

Cristin Shea - Executive Producer, Found Productions Inc., New York & Los Angeles, USA.
"It was great working with Liz & Tony at Knightstar. They were professional, accommodating, friendly, and most importantly, stocked with a diversity of great talent. While we were only looking for background models, they handled our needs in the same manner you would expect if we were looking for leads. We received emailed head shots within a few hours of sending out specs, and were able to easily review and make selects. Their website is simple & accessible, allowing us to view additional images of talent as well as pull sizes all in one click. Our production endured multiple date & location changes leading up to the shoot date, and both Liz & Tony demonstrated a tireless work ethic, great positivity, and a professional poise to accommodate all our needs. I look forward to being back in Utah and working with the Knightstar team again!"

Get to know our staff:

Liz Knight

Hi, I'm Liz Knight, Agency Director, Agent, and owner of KnightStar Talent Mgmt. I have been in this business for over 15 years as a Talent Scout, Agent, Extras Coordinator, Acting Instructor, and Agency Director. We started Knightstar about 9 years ago & have secured quite a competitive place in the Utah market. We represent Actors, Voiceover Talent, Models, and Extras. I grew up just outside of Detroit, then went to BYU, Dallas, Florida, and back to Utah again. Tony and I also have a 10-year-old child actor/model and a very active preschooler, so we understand how to work with children and families.  I have a passion for singing and music, as well as the film and television industry.  Tony and I also write & produce projects, & teach acting classes!  I love helping people progress with their acting or modeling careers or just have fun as background extras. It's very rewarding to see someone so happy- making great money doing something they love. One of the most exciting parts of doing this is telling my Talent that they were chosen for callbacks, roles, and more bookings! We especially love going to our Actor's movie premieres!  Can't wait to get to know you and help each other accomplish our goals.

Tony Knight

Hello, I'm Tony Knight, Finance Director and Talent Scout/Acting Class Instructor. When we started this business we did so with the intent of creating a safe haven for Talent in an industry where agencies can sometimes be the biggest impediment to a career! We pride ourselves on being honest and upfront with all of our Talent, and keeping them focused on the important things - training, auditions, and paid bookings! I have been acting myself now for over 9 years. I also serve the agency by handling its finances, using my Masters in Public Administration as a tool to keep us financially streamlined. I am from Florida, but love living here in Utah. I love the good things the film and television industry can bring about. We look forward to working with you!

Jesse RanneyJesse Ranney, Scout.
Hey, I'm Jesse, I am a bit of a jack of all trades. My feature film experience includes Acting, Casting, Unit Production Manager, Marketing Director, Writer, Assistant Director and Producer, however I would honestly say my most valuable experience came from growing up on a pig farm in rural Missouri. I am blessed for the opportunity I had to learn the value of hard work from my parents, however working in film sure beats waking up at 4:30 to feed swine. Film is not only my job, its my hobby, it's my girlfriend(sad huh?) and it's what consumes most of my thoughts when college football season is over and that as honestly been the cast for over a decade. I do my best to make sure I am constantly going, whether that is working with Liz and Tony or writing and producing my own projects. 2014 was an exciting year because it marks the release of 2 films that are very close to me "Tongue Tied" and "The Infinite Gift".  Looking forward to 2015!
