casting directors Aug 20, 2018

Today's interview guest is long time friend of Act On This and TOP UK casting director - Michael Jackson!

Michael and his wife Beverley form the casting powerhouse, that is Beverley Keogh Casting in Manchester.

Responsible for MASSIVE TV dramas, including the BAFTA-winning Happy Valley, Last Tango In Halifax, Scott & Bailey, and ITV's brand new drama Paranoid, it's clear this team knows what it takes to work at the very top of the acting industry.

I asked Michael to join me at 'On The 7th' in MediaCityUK to spill his casting secrets!

During our chat, Michael and I discussed:

  • What it is that has kept Michael and Beverley at the top for more than 30 years!
  • The greatest challenges facing casting directors right now.
  • Why drama school is often pointless if you only want to work in TV & film.
  • The one thing that really worries Michael about actors today.
  • Why CONFIDENCE is key to any kind of audition success.
  • Why it's AlWAYS better to be GOOD over being original.
  • Where Michael goes to source new talent.
  • Why Michael set up his own TV acting school.
  • Michael's BIGGEST life lessons.

And MUCH MUCH more!
