“I have worked with Graeme and his team at GBM casting for several years and have always found them a joy to work with. Once briefed they deliver a range of possible cast members quickly and if they don’t happen to have the right type on their books they will do their best to find that person elsewhere.
GBM work to my sometimes ridiculous tight timescales and even tighter budgets and I really get the impression that they know something about the people on their books (which is backed up on set when the cast talk about GBM)
The talent from GBM has always arrived promptly, been personable and at ease and know what is expected of them on set.
I can heartily recommend them for any casting requirements.”
Brilliant company to be with. Lots of of fantastic opportunities and the team members are always very kind, professional and quickly responsive. So welcoming and got a lot of work over 2 years with them, even if you don't get much its not the agent's its at the casting director's discretion to pick.But fantastic couple at GBM, nothing is ever to much for them.Always there if you need them on the phone.Not just an agent but they like to get to know you and build a friendship with you too. Xxx I've worked with GBM Casting a fair few times now and I can only speak words of praise. They are professional and hard working in supporting you as an SA and performer. Constantly putting you forwards for all potential jobs and opportunities. They take the care of meeting their candidates in person to create a rapport and good working relationship from the get go, helping you get what you want out of the industry. Plus unlike other companies they take only a small annual fee which goes towards a photoshoot at your first meeting, ensuring you look your best for casting directors. Additionally their fees from any work you successfully book are the lowest in the game, ensuring you get the most income for your hard work on set.Could not recommend GBM enough, if you want to get on set, be an SA and maybe go beyond that, GBM are the best agency to register with. Fantastic company to work for and they are also a lovely team as well Excellent casting agency, Graeme runs a tight ship. Great bunch of people to work with, highly recommend for those wanting to be involved in tv and films, always a joy working with GBM.

I could not recommend them enough Very understanding agencie , they go out there way for you and they are loyal to there word.Have got a lot of work from them and they are always in contact with there acts,Top agent xxxPs Stephanie Wright Heres a true honest opinion of GBM, my names steven and i have been with GBM since 2018, i have alot of respect for the work they do for me to try and get me work as an SA. Since joining i have been put forward for lots of stuff. Most of which i am unsuccessful, i have though been successful for 8 different projects and 3 different projects in the last 6 days. I cant thank GBM enough and would highly reccommend giving them a call. Today I met with Fiona for registration and photo shoot, and I am absolutely delighted to join GBM! Very easy to talk to, but most importantly - she is very passionate and keen to give young artists a chance to network and get opportunities in a hard to break into industry. We certainly need more people like Fiona to create opportunities for artists, they wouldn't otherwise find. Also, the other lady was lovely and thorough with explaining everything about GBM. Ross the photographer was easy going too. I look forward to seeing the photos! very much look forward to working with GBM and meet the rest of the team. I joined with GBM casting few months ago and have had a lot of opportunity for extra roles, GBM is one of Scotland’s most successful talent agencies and I would definitely recommend them to anyone thinking of joining, such a lovely team and very professional , with excellent communication . Irene’e , Graeme and Fiona are doing a fantastic job , it’s a pleasure to be part of their agency. Had an excellent day at my first job with GBM! As a newbie, the team made sure I was looked after by an experienced SA on the day and the communication was superb throughout. Would highly recommend and looking forward to getting more jobs and experience! Professional and well established company with links locally and nationally. I have found Graeme and Fiona extremely helpful and accessible. Within Scotland there is no better agency to get work and at very good rates. Best agent ever, so helpful understanding and look after everyone who are with them.
only been with them a short while and the communication from them is outstanding, always there to answer questions and always sending out work for people.
wither you get picked is down to the director's not the agent but I have been lucky so far.
