Jonny Boutwood


Jonny's career in casting started at the Chichester Festival Theatre. Further casting work on UK theatre tours and West End productions paved the way for a move into TV and Film casting.

His move into TV started as a casting assistant to Kate Rhodes James. Over the next 3 years Jonny worked on some of the most notable British TV Dramas including Line of Duty, The Missing, Sherlock and Ripper Street.

Jonny is currently working as a casting associate at Shaheen Baig Casting (Peaky Blinders, Three Girls, Electric Dreams and Damilola, Our Loved Boy, Ghost Stories, and Strike).

Recent credits include Amazon TV series Hanna and Shane Meadows' new TV show The Virtues.
During this session Jonny will work with everyone on scenes sent out a few days before the workshop to explore the choices you make when preparing a TV or Film casting and help you maximise your time in the room when you get auditions. The session will end with an informal Q&A.
