Personal Quote:

When you're casting a child, you have to find the thing that works for that film and run with it, which is why kids who are good in one particular part often don't go on to be adult actors.


Has worked extensively as casting director for several notable directors, most frequently Richard Attenborough, Neil Jordan, Mike Newell, Bill Forsyth and Tim Burton. See more »
