About The Episode

We’re so excited to share with you the “Best Of” our conversations with casting titans Bernie Telsey, Sarah Finn, and Mary Vernieu. From Broadway, to the Marvel Universe, to Oscar-winning films with directors like Darren Aronofsky and David O. Russell, these Casting Directors are some of the most powerful in the business, and all started their casting careers in Risa’s office decades ago.

We’ve curated this jam-packed episode filled with their advice on auditioning, self-taping, and what they’re looking for in every actor who walks into their rooms- whether in person or virtually. We hope you come to know, as we do, that no matter how huge in their field they are – Mary, Sarah, and Bernie want and need to be affected by you. And when that happens, they will champion you forever.
