CastNet means that UK employers can find great actors, quickly and easily! Casting Directors and employers can search our directories, submit casting breakdowns, create shortlists and contact actors within minutes.
Our unique online matching system, years of pioneering experience (we’ve been matching actors with jobs since 1998) and our intuitive, easy-to-use website means that employers won’t get inundated with inappropriate submissions either. Actors are only notified of projects that they want to do and roles that precisely match their skills, physicality and playing age. Actors can submit for jobs online from wherever they have an internet or mobile connection, so results are fast. All our services are free for employers.
"Dear Danny and CastNet team - I just got a Channel 4 thing so I'm well pleased with you lot! I almost can't quite believe what a good service this is; I recommend you to everyone and you keep making improvements all the time. It's so good that it's almost unnerving…" Josie Pecover (Actress)
"In the deadline driven world of TV, CastNet has provided me the most invaluable casting service consistently willing, efficient and easy to use. Their diverse store of keen and able talent has been instantly accessible and professional, making last-minute panics a thing of the past. I would recommend them to anyone" Adam Birley (Producer, Talkback Thames)
"All the work is done for you. With a click of a mouse you can put yourself in the frame for all the castings that you could desire. With or without an agent, it is a service that opens up your options as an actor. As a result, I have been to several castings and have got 5 days work with the BBC as well as two job offers for good fringe shows. I never had such luck (if you can call it that) when I did not use CastNet. I certainly recommend you to all my fellow actors when they complain about the lack of castings they get. You're brilliant!" Kate Terence (Actress)
"Just a quick note to say thanks for a very rewarding casting last week; a day filming with the BBC opposite one of our leading actors in three 2 handers. Very efficiently handled for what was a short notice job; the production company also seemed to be very pleased!" Kit Smith (Actor)

I am thrilled and amazed at how quickly things have started coming in for me! Thank you!" Kirstn Hawson (Actress)
