We require a DBS check every 18 months. You must inform us of any Sexual Offences (convictions) relating to the Sexual Act of 2003. We cannot then supply you to any Production.

Camilla Fox is an angel. My son Lyric feels totally supported by her and her agency. One thing that stands out for me is crystal clear communication, when Lyric has been booked or has a casting the communication from Camilla is amazing, any issues are ironed out straight away. When Lyric has been on shoots with other kids, Camilla knows all the kids names and the parents names. If you’re looking for an agent who 100% has your back, look no further than Fox Casting.
