Stephanie is a Casting Director based in London specialising in theatre, film, commercial and corporate work. She has been casting for over 5 years having initially trained as an actor at The Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts.
After a period as a graduating actor, Stephanie set to exploring what casting meant and what worked and didn’t. This resulted in an unexpected but fervent passion for putting actors in the right roles and discovering exciting talent. She started finding work in casting and has never looked back! Stephanie believes that her training as an actor has given her the intuition, understanding and appreciation of actors needed to deliver really attentive and passionate casting.
Notable credits include the Royal Television Society and EVCOM award winning short film KAYLEIGH’S LOVE STORY, Bolton Film Festival (Winner Best UK Film) award winning short film DAUGHTER, Unchosen Charity FIlm Competition (judged by Ken Loach) award winning short film SLAVED and the Offie Award winning play THE GLASSHOUSE (Grindstone London, Tristan Bates Theatre). Stephanie was also Casting Associate for the Offie nominated world premiere of Philip Ridley’s new show ANGRY at the Southwark Playhouse starring Georgie Henley and Tyrone Huntley.
Stephanie has strong links with theatre and arts hub 53Two in Manchester as well as video production agencies, Affixxius Films and Big Button.
In addition to casting, Stephanie is also the Industry Liaison Officer for the BA Acting course at Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts, a role she very much enjoys. She also regularly delivers casting workshops and sessions on independent reflection for actors at other institutions, including Fourth Monkey Actor Training Company and Identity School of Acting.
