The Acting Podcast

“Regardless of getting a job, how can you feel fulfilled? Find that internal- or external- way of feeling connected to being an artist. That’s the thing they/we (casting directors) gotta have.”

-Bernie Telsey

Show Notes

Bernie Telsey started his casting career back in the day alongside Risa, and popped into BGB to sit down with Risa + Steve to talk about it all.

As head of the massive- and massively successful- Telsey + Company in New York (and LA), Bernie Telsey is a true titan in the casting industry. In this episode, listen in as he talks to Risa and Steve about his passion for collaboration, what he hopes to see from actors in the audition room, and how his unique approach to casting- stemming from a deep love of the theater and the experience of connecting to a performance on a profound, emotional level- has made him one of the most sought-after (not to mention beloved) casting directors in the world.
