Welcome and thanks for visiting.  I am an established freelance casting director with many years experience across the media, specialising in theatre.  I am based in London but work with producers across the country.  For more information, please click on the Curriculum Vitae page.

I owe my career to two brilliant women who tragically are no longer with us.  Carrie Hilton, with whom I had been at university, introduced me to Maggie Lunn, then Head of Casting at the RSC.  I began working with her there in 1997, and after I went freelance in 2001, assisted Carrie with her television and film work alongside my own projects. She died far too young in 2007. Maggie and I worked together on three seasons at Chichester and then sporadically whenever one of us needed the other, until she died in 2017.  I learnt so much from them.  They trained, supported, mentored and collaborated with me with patience and skill and I owe them both a huge debt of love and gratitude.

I am a member of the Casting Directors' Guild and was delighted to serve an illuminating and fascinating two year term on the committee.

My assistant is the lovely Olivia Church and we can both be reached on casting@ginnyschiller.co.uk or via the Contact page.

Feel free to get in touch, but if you're an actor, please read the Information for Actors first.  If you are interested in working in casting, I recommend reading Becoming a casting director on the CDG website. I am not currently looking for any casting assistance or running internships.  

That's non-alcoholic fruit punch. Honest. My usual is a gin and tonic.
