Sophie’s passion for the industry

Before setting up her own casting agency, Sophie worked at BAFTA winning Des Hamilton Casting before leaving the bright lights of London for the rolling hills of Sligo. Sophie’s expertise has graced esteemed projects such as: “Journey’s End” (Directed by Saul Dibb), ‘The More You Ignore Me’ (Directed by Keith English), ‘Time of Our Lives’ (Directed by Roger Goldby), and ‘Star Fish’ (Directed by Bill Clark) while working as an associate for the renowned Ros and John Hubbard at Hubbard Casting.
 
Sophie’s passion for the industry led her to Des Hamilton Casting, where she flourished as a Casting Director and played an instrumental role in noteworthy ventures like “Hilma” (Directed by Lasse Hallström), the Netflix sensation “Top Boy,” the mesmerising “The King” (Directed by David Michôd), and the delightful “Jojo Rabbit” (Directed by Taika Watiti).
