Cast & Production Testimonials

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.

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!

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.

After leaving my agent in 2011 I joined Fox Casting in 2013. Since being with Fox Casting I have had numerous quality auditions; locally and in London; being interviewed by the directors on two occasions. I am very happy to say I am represented by 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.

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.

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.

Camilla Fox is that rare find in a location manager – committed, personable and thoroughly professional.
She was a huge asset to Burning Men. She provided a strong boots-on-the-ground service for our London based production company, always there for us in pre-production and on set, and beyond. She was, and is, our Friend in the North (East). 
Location scouting, set management, supporting artist casting and generally full of helpful ideas to make the film as good as possible. I cannot recommend Camilla highly enough to any production shooting, or planning to shoot, in the North East.

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.
