Bring the year in with a bang….Casting Directors Aisha Walters & Anna McAuley

Bring the year in with a bang….Casting Directors Aisha Walters & Anna McAuley 


Welcome back everyone to 2017! So much excitement upon us already to start the year with a Casting Director duo! Oooh yes. The lovely Aisha Walters and Anna McAuley are joining us on February 7th at Thirst Bar to chat all things castings.

We don’t know if you have been seen by (or met) Aisha before but we had Aisha along to speak many years ago and we think she is wonderful. Last time Aisha shared her experiences working for Shaheen Baig. In 2016 Aisha and Anna set up McAuley Walters Casting and Aisha and Anna have been busy casting everything from film and television to commercials. So we can’t wait to hear all about this casting company and what they’ve been up to.

Some of Anna’s credits include feature films Grimsby (starring Sacha Baron Cohen) Trespass Against Us (starring Michael Fassbender & Brendan Gleeson), Swallows and Amazons (starring Rafe Spall) and The Falling (starring Maisie Williams, Florence Pugh and Maxine Peake).

Aisha assisted Shaheen on projects including The Impossible (starring Naomi Watts, Ewan McGregor), Starred Up (starring Jack O’Connell), Locke  (starring Tom Hardy), Black Mirror (Written by Charlie Brooker) and Peaky Blinders (starring Cillian Murphy). Since leaving her credits as a Casting Director include the film The Possibilities Are Endless and TV projects Youngers, Cyberbully (starring Maisie Williams) and The Watchmen (starring Stephen Graham).

Because we know how tough it is for actors and filmmakers out there we always aim to keep our costs as low as possible, which means our tickets to this event are only £5 and they’ll go very fast. So book quickly.

Join us on this action packed evening by signing up here. After the Q&A we’ll be hosting our usual networking drinks which are FREE to attend.

Location: Thirst Bar
Address: 53 Greek Street, Soho, London W1D 3DR
Price: £5 + booking fee on Eventbrite
Date: Tuesday February 7th
Time: 7pm – 8pm for the Q&A, 8pm onwards for free networking drinks.
