"Having worked with Stephanie and Alison for 8 years now, I would recommend them for any casting job, big or small. Alison and Stephanie understand their clients and their casting needs, being able to provide brilliant cast again and again. 

Their knowledge of actors and their creative ability to think out of the box is what often gives your production that extra edge. 

Their professionalism, efficiency and love of what they do keeps you coming back again and again. Every time I work with them is a truly wonderful experience, they’re efficient, organised, amazing eye for detail with their fingers on the pulse. Always!”

" I have been a casting director from the U.S. for over 30 years. Luckily, Chicken and Chips was recommended to me as I was casting a  worldwide project. Stephanie, Alison and their team did a wonderful job of pulling together several terrific casting sessions for me. It was a large brief with all sorts of ethnicities, accents and ages. They were spot on, and brought in great talent. They would be my first call for another project!"

Steph & Alison are two of the most lovely & professional people I've had the pleasure of working with. One of the biggest differences in making great low-budget cinema is the quality of talent available and I've always felt I've had the best local talent to cast from working with Steph & Alison. They're my one and only port-of-call. I regard them as friends and an integral part of the team.

Director, Ogilvy X

Chicken and Chips have done all my casting since their inception and I have never been less than thrilled. In a nutshell, I always get actors who fulfill the promise of the character on the page. There’s no such thing as an initial cattle call with Al and Steph, their first offering is always a collection of actors capable of handling the part, each coming with a slightly unique spin on the role. We’ve cast a variety of parts from serious drama to comedy for a list of demanding international and government clients, and on every job the cast has been approved first time and applauded in the edit.

"Chicken and Chips are the best!  When we approached Steph and Ali about casting for presenters and actors on our television pilot they instantly understood the brief, they moved swiftly to provide us with a list of great options, then worked seamlessly with talent management and our production team to achieve win win results for all involved. Chicken and Chips are now our go to casting agency…"

Stephanie and Alison are a delight to work with as a director. They understood the layers of the script and what I was seeking in terms of look, energy, ability and style. This is because they are great communicators, really listening to what I was looking for and enhancing my own vision with their thoughts and feelings on the material. On a personal note they are charming, committed and such a pleasure to work with. Can’t thank them enough for all they brought to the table on MIRO.

“I couldn’t possibly recommend Chicken & Chips any more - their eye for talent and ability to deliver made my job a lot easier. They are hard working, attentive and devoted to their projects.”

Stephanie and Alison were fantastic to work with. The best thing is that they take care of everything! I've got so much going on when we're in production, and the fact that I know the casting process and all the extras work is all being taken care of by Stephanie and Ali just gives me one less giant thing to think about. I know it'll get done, and done well. I love Chicken & Chips!
