Audition advice from casting director Lee Mountjoy

Lee Mountjoy runs one of the most imaginative casting houses in the UK, casting award-winning television, theatre and film. Lee's casting credits include: ‘TopDog' (Universal Pictures), 'Closets' (BAFTA recognised short film), 'The Johnny and Inel Show' (BBC) and 'Woody Sez' (Award Nominated West End show).

How to get on the casting directors list


One of the questions I'm always asked is "how do I get on a casting director's list". The first thing to remember is that the casting director is the 'gatekeeper' to the director. They are their eyes and ears, employed to find talent.

What makes a great audition?


What makes a performer stand out at an audition? Talent is only part of the answer. The rest is down to preparation. You need to prepare for an audition like an athlete prepares for a race.
