Leading casting director who helped to launch actors such as David Oyelowo and Benedict Cumberbatch

Maggie Lunn, who has died of cancer aged 56, was a leading casting director, at various times head of casting at the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre and the Almeida. She also cast for television and film, including the BBC series Cranford and the film Notes on a Scandal. Recent work for the stage included, in 2015, the triumphant Young Chekhov trilogy at Chichester Festival theatre, which transferred to the National the following year.

Casting directors – in theatre, TV and film – are the unsung heroes of every production. Benedict Cumberbatch, Alex Jennings, Ben Whishaw, Eve Best, Rory Kinnear, Eddie Redmayne and David Oyelowo are a few of the now celebrated actors whose careers Maggie helped to launch.
