Lucy Pardee

Casting Director

Lucy has been working in the industry as researcher, award-winning casting director and now writer since 2004. She specialises in street casting and long term script research, and has worked with some of the most critically acclaimed filmmakers in the country. Lucy is perhaps best “renowned for her ability to find non-professional performers from beyond the established film industry and the agencies and drama schools that conveyor-belt the pedigree talent” (The Guardian). She also likes baking bread and playing swingball.
