Casting directors choose an individual from a pool of prospective actors to fill a certain acting role. They may be involved in the recruiting process to develop a shortlist or work within a team of individuals who share this task. Depending on the project for which they are casting, casting directors may look for a certain image or demographic. Acting ability is also important, though casting directors may recruit for a variety of production types including photo shoots, theatre, movies, television shows, commercials etc. Casting directors need to be good communicators and skilled at interpreting and conceptualizing the performance of written scripts.
