Orla O'Connor

"Whether a household name, or an aspiring graduate, Orla always delivers a detailed, considered evaluation of an actor's skills and relevance to the part you're offering - and she treats each and every actor with consummate honesty, respect and nurturing throughout the casting process.  She champions the acting fraternity in Scotland, and it's especially thanks to her that I've enjoyed working within its enormous scope in recent years.  As a producer, Orla provides me with the constant, quiet reassurance that my directors will be thoughtfully advised, supported and inspired ... in finding just the right actors to express their work. Thorough, energetic, generous and philosophical in her approach; Orla has the precious gift of instinct that great casting relies on. I could not imagine my ideal drama production team without her."
