Cast & Production Testimonials

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.

Hi my name is Serena-Kate. I have been with Fox Casting for 3 years. I really enjoy working on set and have been lucky to have already been given different casting opportunities.

Camilla is very supportive and friendly and is a great chaperone who always makes sure I’m ok, comfortable and happy with what I’ve been asked to do. I enjoy all aspects of drama and I just love to act and I feel that the opportunities I have already been given with Fox Casting has put me in good stead for the future. I’m only 11 so I’m still unsure on what I would like to do as a career when I leave school.  I’m undecided between an actress or forensic scientist!! Wouldn’t it be good if I could land an acting role as a forensic scientist? That would be a dream!!

Thank you Camilla, love, Serena-Kate.

I am so impressed by my experiences with Fox Casting, I’ve taken part in some incredible jobs. The crew and directors at the events have been professional and prestigious. I have met some real characters amongst the extras and everybody has been so friendly and polite. Top class casting agency.

Fox Casting have represented me for a number of years now and it has been a great pleasure and a privilege working with them.
They have managed to secure me many auditions with some of Film & TV’S biggest names several of which have led to me obtaining leading rolls. Amongst these are clients such as; BBC, Gala Bingo and the National lottery.
I’d like to say thank you Fox Casting for all your hard work.

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.

Camilla worked with Transparent Television as location manager on a channel 5 documentary about Ant McPartlin, but location manager doesn’t really do justice to the numerous roles that she performed. As well as finding locations in and around Newcastle and negotiating filming access and permissions, she also tracked down contributors and previously unseen archive footage for the show. She has an extensive network of connections in the TV and film industry in the North East and always knows the right people to contact to make things happen. Superbly well organised and very knowledgeable, Camilla does everything efficiently and with an infectious enthusiasm which makes working with her an absolute pleasure.

Hello, my name is Josie Kwok, and I’ve been with Fox Casting for a bit over a year. In this time, I’ve been fortunate enough to take on two amazing projects; I absolutely loved the experience of being on set, working with such amazing people and seeing how what we see on our screens come to life. I would like to give great thanks to Camilla she’s so supportive and I wouldn’t have got those opportunities without her. Next year I’ll be starting my GCSE performing arts course and with Camilla’s guidance, continue to strive for my dreams working in the performance industry.

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.
