I had the pleasure of working with Ben a few years ago. He is a passionate, insightful and very talented casting director. I worked on a production that was not related to Casualty but I do know the part he has played in casting the series simply cannot be over estimated. Repeatedly he has produced hugely talented casts but has also been instrumental in finding some of the series’ current stars. I am sad to see Ben leave the BBC but am sure that he will play a very significant role outside the corporation finding, supporting and developing the stars of tomorrow.
