Integral Artists, the firm headed by longtime talent manager Nils Larsen, is expanding its team, adding Matt Gogal to its ranks.
Gogal, formerly of A3 Artists Agency and who is making his transition into management, is known for his work with up-and-coming talent. Gogal has cultivated the careers of such actors as Angus Cloud, the Euphoria actor who recently passed away, Star Wars: The Last Jedi breakout Kelly Marie Tran, Shakira Barrera (GLOW), Griffin Matthews (The Flight Attendant) and Grace Dove (Alaska Daily), among others.
“When I started Integral Artists over three years ago, my mission was to return to my roots and establish an exclusive management company that was unstoppable in creating extraordinary opportunities for artists,” said Larsen in a statement. “Fueled by excellence, passion, creativity, and determination, my goal was to continue to work with remarkable talent to unlock their full global potential in all the different sectors of the industry and eventually add counterparts that share this same vision. I knew in due time the right people would present themselves and that moment has come with the addition of Matt Gogal.”
Gogal began his career in talent representation in 2007 and quickly rose to prominence as a young hustler. By 2015, he was a partner and president of the boutique agency The Talent House LA before joining A3 Artists Agency, where he’s spent the last six years.
Said Gogal, “I’m incredibly thrilled to be joining Integral Artists and working alongside Nils. Our shared passion for representing artists has connected us over the years and I’m excited for this natural evolution into management.”
Larsen is known for discovering talent at an early age and developing them into some of the biggest stars of their generation. Actors such as Shailene Woodley, Nick Robinson, Storm Reid, and Ross Lynch broke out under his watch. Larsen began his career at 23 years old when he created Elements Entertainment. After eight years, Elements was acquired by Principato-Young Entertainment, now known as Artists First, where Larsen spent six years. He then joined Management 360 in 2017 and three years later, launched Integral Artists, a full-service management and production company.
The company’s roster now includes Kyle Gallner (Smile), David Ramsey (Arrow), Jewel Staite (CW’s Family Law), Reign Edwards (The Wilds), Renata Vaca (upcoming Saw X), Larisa Oleynik (10 Things I Hate About You), singer-actress Hayley Kiyoko (CSI: Cyber) and Nuha Jes Izman (Yellowjackets).
