Alex Johnson Casting

Alex Johnson Profile

Alex worked initially as a producer for TV, Commercials and Music Videos. Always fascinated by the casting process she made the changeover, working first with Nina Gold and then as associate to Celestia Fox for several years before starting Alex Johnson Casting, specialising in Films, TV, and Commercials.

There is alchemy to casting – get it right and the story comes alive but get it wrong and it can really jar. We neglect no part big or small in the quest to get it right – spot on in fact. The nuts and bolts are important too whether its liaising with agents, setting up meetings, doing the deals and keeping the paperwork in order - we take care of that too. Not only do we keep an eye out for new and emerging talent but we also have extensive experience in casting children and will scour the country to find the right one. Our work includes International co- productions and if you need English speaking actors from other European countries we have worked with agents all over Europe including France, Spain, Germany, Eastern Europe and Scandinavia.
