I've worked with Ben Cogan in two different contexts - as a professional colleague and Casting Director on the BBC drama, CASUALTY, and (in my capacity as Head of Media at Drama Studio London) as employer of guest tutors on our Screen Acting program." "Ben is an excellent Casting Director, combining hard work, a wide knowledge of actors, good taste and a willingness to look outside the box. All four episodes of CASUALTY I've directed have been very successful in their guest casting.Ben has also twice taught as a guest tutor at Drama Studio in London, giving graduating students the benefit of his experience and perception in practice TV interviews. These sessions have been thoroughly planned and professionally executed to schedule. Ben has an extremely approachable and friendly manner with students, making them feel appreciated as well as giving valuable individual feedback and advice.
