We are an established and credible presence in the industry and have been around for over 15 years.
We have invested in up to date technology to make us efficient and effective. Our response times to requests for Background have never been quicker.
Our Looks Books contain clear, up to date colour photos and measurements of everyone we suggest.We only suggest people who have said they are available for the dates specified by productions.
We celebrate and supply the growing requirement for BAME Artists and Actors.
We continually respond to the needs of all productions through connecting with local communities, interest groups and recruiting new, skilled and interesting talent.
We are flexible and agile allowing us to run ‘pop up’ casting for productions in locations across Scotland. We recently popped up in the North East of Scotland to supply to the feature film Marionette filmed in Aberdeen and Portsoy.
Owner and Casting Extraordinaire
Sneaker Freak or Alto as his friends know him as set up GBM Casting after being out as an Extra on BBC River City Series 1! He has Tim Bain 1st AD to thank for the encouragement to go for it.
Graeme oversee’s the important things and makes sure we all get paid. Graeme keeps up to date by meeting everyone on our books, being involved in the casting process and speaking to who we work with to make sure we are getting it right.
Casting Associate and Director of Everything
Irenée is not Irene. However, she is to polite to let you know. GBM Casting could not do what it does without Irenée who amongst the change and chaos quietly casts and responds to everyones needs! She keeps track of where things are, has an eye for detail and delivers on time – all while bringing up her two teenage boys.
Irenée’s best moments were successfully casting for Young Begby & Young Renton for T2 and finding body doubles Claire & Brianna on Outlander.Irenée’s recent casting suggestions have led GBM Casting to supply models to big clients like RBS, Tesco and Scotland is Now.
Business Development and Making lots of Noise about things that Matter
Fiona was invited into the family business in 2017 to help move GBM Casting to the next level.
2018 saw Fiona out and about connecting with the industry and letting people know GBM Casting and Scotland are open for business. Her best moment to date was 8th February 2018 when she gave evidence at the Scottish Parliament Enquiry into the Scottish TV and Film Industry alongside Tommy Gormley!

The Shelties (Tina, Guy and Jack)
You can hear them if you phone the office as they are guaranteed to bark during an important phone call!
Occasionally they make an appearance at the photo shoots. But only sometimes ♥️🐾
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for your help with the casting!
The quality of the people you were provided were excellent and a cut above the other agencies. Really impressed and grateful!
