About Me

My name is Ben Cogan and I am a Casting Director. For the last 22 years, I have had the honour of working on a wide and wonderful powerhouse of award-winning dramas for both television and film. I am inspired and impassioned by working with actors on behalf of production for the enjoyment of audiences.

The role of the casting director places them into the heart of a dramatic creation. Through working with writers and producers, they are equipped to join forces with directors and introduce actors to the shoes of a character. It’s a beautiful and blessed role in a fantastic collaborative process.

After 15 fantastic years casting for BBC Continuing Drama, I decided to set up BeCo.Me in 2015. 
This has been an almighty adventure (thus far) – that has given me the opportunity to cast for independent feature films, a treasure chest of short films and television.

Working with and for actors is my happy place. Whether it is in an audition, workshop, drama school or a one-to-one tutorial: preparing the actor to perform to their best ability is my ultimate responsibility. I am very proud to have a respected reputation for being a Casting Director who supports, guides, assists and encourages actors to fly!
