Kelly Valentine Hendry is a Casting Director who has cast Actors in some of your favourite shows; from ‘Bridgerton’ to ‘Gangs of London’, ‘Fleabag’ to ‘Broadchurch’. Kelly sat down with me (over Zoom…obviously) for a chat on The Screenster Podcast.
‘Bridgerton’ stole our hearts this Christmas (and beyond) and it’s just been announced that a second season is on the horizon! On the podcast, Kelly talked to me about casting the first series and finding the perfect Daphne and Simon. I also found out about her time working on the Sky show ‘Gangs of London’ and revealed what my personal highlight of her CV is. As an Actor myself, I ask Kelly what she thinks of the term ‘big break’. We also talk side jobs, self-tapes and the future of casting, post-pandemic.
I hope you enjoy!
