Cast & Production Testimonials

My mum introduced me to Fox Casting Agency just over 5 years ago. I am now 15. I was extremely shy back then, my mum encouraged me to join Fox Casting Agency, as she believed that working with them would be a really good for my confidence.

Immediately upon meeting Camilla, I felt at ease and excited about the range of opportunities and possibilities which lay ahead. Camilla has really encouraged and believed in me, which makes me feel really appreciated and highly valued.

Since joining the Fox Casting Agency, I have worked with my mum, and also on my own as an Extra on various projects. I found these opportunities really exciting, great work experience, working on set has taught me great discipline with things like time-keeping, being presentable, as well as being a good listener, and being able to respond positively to instruction and constructive criticism. I have enjoyed the work so much that I have decided to take up Performing Arts at GCSE in order to enhance and improve the skills I have learned being an Extra, my confidence has, and is, improving immensely because of my work gained through Fox Casting.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for sending over such wonderful candidates!
Everyone was so punctual, polite, and so very professional... amazing! We all had a fantastic day at the shoot, and the candidates were just perfect.
I loved how each one brought appropriate clothes choices, how they called ahead as well to ensure they were at the address on time... they made the shoot a great success!

I’ve had an interest in film and acting since graduating from university, but I never took this interest any further, at least not until I discovered Fox Casting. I contacted Camilla Fox and she soon secured me work as a TV and film extra, as well as auditions with various directors.

The work is varied and I get to meet very interesting people, this also helped me network and make new friends. I really feel I’ve developed my skills as an actor, and gained confidence both personally as well as professionally.

I’ve been with Fox Casting for almost three years now, and I hope to continue being represented by Camilla. If you’re interested in acting, having fun and meeting great people, Fox Casting is the agency for you.

Over the last few years the BA hons top up degree at NCL (Newcastle College) has developed a strong association with Fox Casting. The professional delivery and the vast knowledge delivered to students has been invaluable for the course. This relationship has developed with Camilla becoming the industry representative and her professional knowledge and insight into the industry has been a tremendous support to the course. Many of the past and current students have also gained industry experience and knowledge through the guidance and support of fox casting.

Ever since I was a child I have always wanted to get into acting of some sort, whether it be in Theatre or TV. I got an A in Drama at GCSE, l also attended various drama schools, in London in order to follow my dream, but sadly, this was to no avail.

However, when I moved to Newcastle this changed dramatically for me, when I was introduced to the Fox Casting Agency. Shortly after I registered with the agency work opportunities as an Extra were found quite regularly for me. Fox Casting owner, Camilla Fox, is always so thoughtful when considering my suitability for a role.

From day one I knew that I was meeting more than just an agent in Camilla. She cares about her clients and I actually recommend her to other professionals in the industry when asked. I am a director of an inclusive Theatre School and trust Camilla with some of our members when they have been on set.
Some of our children come from vulnerable backgrounds with anxiety issues and she always puts them at ease. If you are looking for an agent who truly cares then look no further than Fox Casting.
