Since first contacting Amanda at Urban Collective I have been so relaxed regarding the process of finding cast members that not only suit my brief perfectly, but are kind and professional themselves. The entire process massively relieved your sterotypical production stresses and aided pre-production greatly. Huge thank you to Amanda and the team at Urban Collective, I look forward to getting in touch the moment the next project begins pre-production in 2018.

Every one of your client rosta who worked on the project was simply fantastic and also, on a personal level you were such a pleasure to work with along the way. Your professionalism and working style was a real breath of fresh air... I look forward to working with you again.

My production company has worked with Urban Collective a few times, in particular we cast one of their actors at short notice last year, and found Amanda and her team to be responsive, supportive and collaborative. The actor in question was talented and enthusiastic and injected new spirit into our tour. We would absolutely work with her again, and have since used Urban Collective as a first stop for casting.

I have worked in partnership with Urban Collective now for 8 years and consider them to be a goto agency when I’m casting a production. They fully understand the casting brief so the clients they submit are always of a high calibre and always worth seeing. The administration process surrounding the hiring of their clients is always smooth and sets the tone for a great working relationship between producer and the client.

As the director of a touring theatre company the task of finding appropriate actors can be challenging. Urban Collective have been supportive and positive in all my dealings with them. Amanda has taken our needs into careful consideration when selecting actors to put forward. I have been impressed with the range of talent and very happy with the actors from Urban Collective that I have worked with.

Amanda Beckman is an honest, loyal and extremely hard working professional. She is discerning but knows talent when she see’s it. Four years ago Amanda was one of only half a dozen agents to attend our London Showcase from which she offered representation to three young actors. Within eighteen months, one of those graduates, Sarah George was appearing as a regular character in a popular TV soap.
