Pearson Casting are an award-nominated, international Casting House based in London, Liverpool & New York founded by husband & wife team,  James & Rosie Pearson. 


With a combined industry experience of over 35 years, James and Rosie began their careers as performers. 


James graduated with Distinction from the very first year of The London School of Musical Theatre and was the first graduate to gain employment as an Actor, as well as the first graduate to perform in London's West End.  He then spent 19 years working as an Actor on Stage, TV and Film.  He is also an experienced Theatre Director and worked as an Agent for Keddie Scott Associates. 


Rosie graduated from the University of Birmingham with a combined BA Hons in English and Theatre Studies before embarking on a successful career as an Actor, Director and Producer.

James & Rosie are both members of the CDG - Casting Directors Guild, CDA - Casting Directors Association (of which they are also board members) and the CSA - Casting Society of America.

They are joined in the New York office by Ian Subsara, who is a proud graduate of Elon University in North Carolina where he earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music Theatre.  He has since worked extensively as a Casting Director across TV, live performance and theatre, both on and off-Broadway.

Pearson Casting work across Theatre, Film, Television, Commercials & live performance, and are organisers of the Spotlight Open House North West in the UK.

In 2020 they launched the Award-Winning Collective Creative Initiative, a free 30 hour a week industry platform for the arts, in response to the Covid-19 crisis.  In 2021 they redesigned this platform as a free resource for teaching institutions across the world, and in July became the proud recipients of a prestigious Industry Minds Award for Best Training Establishment.
