I was thrilled to have Erica Hart on the Actorcast. She is an amazing casting director who has worked on a variety of different types of projects and I appreciated her succinct, actionable advice she provides throughout this episode. Erica and I discuss how she got into the world of casting, what the casting process looks like on her end of the table, as well as what she looks for in an audition. Erica also shares why she is a casting director and why this is work that is inspiring to her.
