Ben Cogan will interpret a script and listen to a director's ideas then come up with stunning (sometimes off the wall) casting suggestions that always work. He is amenable, receptive, strong when he needs to be and always ultra cool. Ben is a superb casting director and pleasure to work with.

Ben's creativity, diligence and sensitivity are what make him the most wonderful casting director. Ben doesn't just turn up and sling a few 10x8 photos of his mates in front of you - he understands drama. Really, truly understands how story works, how characters tick and how people think.  I really like working with Ben because he listens. And then he imagines. He's bold in his approach, he subverts conventional thinking, he adapts and pushes boundaries, and has a quicksilver mind ... and does so with such marvellous enthusiasm, good grace and charm. It is a pleasure to work with him.

Ben is an inspiring, energetic, kooky, compassionate, honest, mercurial, sensitive individual who is a joy to work with. There aren't many like him. Hire him at all costs.

I have worked with Ben Cogan as a casting director on BBC1 shows like Doctors and Casualty. As a director joining a long running show your aim is to tell a believable story and to add a new dimension. Ben always helped me to do this through insightful casting. His understanding of the script and his appreciation of the producer and directors’ artistic vision has always made him a pleasure to work with.

I worked with Ben Cogan on several blocks of Casualty from 2008 onwards. I always found Ben to be extremely enthusiastic and very keen to ensure that he cast the best actors in the right rôles, as well as fulfilling other production wishes such as profile and diversity. Any production would benefit from Ben’s knowledge and experience.
