The specialised casting service

now offered by fightdirector.com

ActionCast ™ will find the very best people for the action scenes in your film. I have been meeting potential action actors for un-designated roles and the creation of an ActionCast ™ database during 2017 and have people on hand which I can suggest to you right now. I've been involved in this form of specialised casting for over 20 years and I am now offering my services as a casting director to any productions that seek performers for a fight or staged action scene, whether I am engaged as a fight director or not.

My background and experience have seen me working with the cream of television and film talent as the fight director on numerous high profile television shows and feature films and my expertise in this field is invaluable. I will be tracking down and assessing all types of action actor ranging from featured extras required to simply die, to fighters who are asked to double for lead roles or have small speaking parts to lead actors who will give it their all in filmed action sequences. The fighters that I seek to find must be able to act as well as fight. 

ActionCast ™ holds Talent Search style casting sessions for specially invited actors and fighters each year in Scotland and can assist with associate specialist casting directors in England, China and Canada.

Please get in touch if you represent a production company and would like to discuss a film or tv project. This is a fee based service, but if I am also engaged as your fight director that will be waived or greatly reduced. NB Actors hired through this service must be paid a reasonable wage. This is a professional service and there are no free options.

Actors and supporting artistes who are interested in being seen will be required to submit a CV, photograph and filmed piece to camera. One recommendation will also be required. Due to the volume of interested parties I hear from already it may not be possible to respond to every message. Priority will be given to those who have *acting experience.
