"We knew it will be a challenge to cast for our film as we were looking for actors with a specific ethnicity from the UK and to be honest there were not many around. But working with Dowling Erdely was a great experience, they were brilliant and worked hard to resource and find the right people for our film, the whole process took a while but in the end we had great actors who performed so well. Both Shakyra and Kristina were very confident , dedicated and delivered the right people for the job. I look forward to working with them in my next film!"
Joshua Clement, Producer, Tooting Broadway
“A Fabulous Bunch of Ladies! I cannot tell you how lovely you all are and how well our casting days have gone because of your great help. I hope we will all meet again soon on another project.”
Wolfram Parge, Producer, Judas Ghost
"Shakyra and Kristina are fantastic! I will be forever in their debt for their work casting a great actor for the lead role in my debut feature, Third Contact, at a time when I had almost lost hope. They add credibility to any project."
Simon Horrocks, Director, Third Contact
"If you work with them, then rest assured you'll end up with 5 excellent actors for each role you are casting. A fast delivery of a very professional casting session will follow, and in the confusion of abundance you will be left with the headache of choosing the perfect actor from so many perfect ones! After the shoot, you'll want to use the actors again and again. It's a very special gift when someone can find the right actors in a short space of time, with relatively little information. It's even more special when they find you friends for life."
Hajdú Szabolcs , Oscar Nominated Director, Biblioteque Pascal
"They understood the script and vision for our feature project from the start. Through contacts, charm, professionalism and commitment they found us a terrific ensemble cast in an incredibly short period of time. A great eye for acting talent!"
Ben Crowe, Director, Verity's Summer
"Dowling Erdely found us our dream cast in record time and the fact that they were able to deliver such a remarkably talented array of Actors with virtually zero prep time is a testament to their talents as Casting Directors. I cannot recommend them high enough."
Christopher Nicholson, Writer/Director, Don't Call Back

"I once found myself in an '11th hour' casting disaster, when Dowling Erdely stepped in to the rescue. They not only help me cast the role, they cast it brilliantly. They were confident, capable, talented and supportive beyond what anyone would normally expect, and I'm really looking forwards to working with them in the future. I would recommend them in a heartbeat for any project - big or small."
