Having a great script is one thing but finding the right actors to portray the characters is just as important. A miscast role can ruin a character and, in turn, affect the success of the movie. Casting the right talent for a role requires plenty of planning, choice, critical analysis, and a little bit of luck!

Vision is key

Understanding your characters is key to casting the right actors. Give potential talent something to work with - backstories, appearances, personalities, and rough scripts help actors to embody the role - even if it’s very basic.

Casting is as much about highlighting wrong actors for the role as well as the rights ones.
