ABOUT THE TUTOR…
Ben Cogan has worked in casting for 21 years. He began as a Casting Director for many shows (including Eastenders, Holby City and Waking the Dead) before becoming the Casting Director for Doctors in 2002. 380 episodes later, Ben moved to Casualty, and, in his time there, 6 episodes that he worked on were recognised with BAFTA nominations. During this period he also worked on the Afternoon Play series and Kiss of Death – one of which (Wish 143) was nominated for an Oscar.
Since going freelance in 2015 Ben has cast numerous films including the award winning, Just Charlie, Trendy, Lady M, Bellmouth and TV shows such as BAFTA nominated Apple Tree House.

“Working with and for actors is my happy place. Whether it is in an audition, workshop, drama school or a one-to-one tutorial: preparing the actor to perform to their best ability is my ultimate responsibility. I am very proud to have a respected reputation for being a casting director who supports, guides, assists and encourages actors to fly! ”
