Casting for Screen: Casting Director, Rachel Sheridan
Casting Director Rachel Sheridan is currently working on a BBC3 drama with the team who produced “Killed By Debt”, “Murdered by my Father” & “Murdered for being Different” and is soon to start on a new comedy series for Netflix/E4. She most recently cast “In My Skin” for BBC3 and “Flack” staring Anna Paquin & Sophie Okonedo which will transmit on Channel W in 2019.
In this 3 hour practical workshop Rachel shares her wealth of experience and top tips. Rachel will begin with a brief chat covering her professional background before moving into the practical element.
Actors will have the chance to read specially selected scenes in a mock casting scenario. Prior to the workshop Rachel will email out a selection of scenes for you and ask you to prepare two as you would for a real casting. If there is time you will do both scenes but if there isn’t we will concentrate on just one scene. Rachel will provide feedback and during the Q&A section will be happy to answer questions relating to all aspects of casting.
Please bring 2 copies of your scene with you so that someone else can read in.
Previously Rachel worked as Rachel Freck’s Associate.
Other recent work includes: "Tin Star" (starring Tim Roth & Christina Hendricks) Season 2 will transmit in 2019 on Sky Atlantic, "Quacks” for BBC (starring Rory Kinnear, Matt Baynton, Tom Basden & Rupert Everett) & “Howards End” for BBC (staring Hayley Atwell & Matthew MacFadyen).
