I Wish I Knew: Interview with Casting Director Cathy Reinking

I Wish I Knew is back this week! A new blog dedicated to interviewing people in the theater and on camera business to get some answers about their journeys through the industry, I thought it would be awesome to interview my casting director friend Cathy Reinking (she/her/hers). As an actor, I’ve spent a lot of my career thinking casting directors were the untouchable, unreadable keepers of the gate to success. They seem scary and intimidating. But then I met Cathy who is one of the most open, nonthreatening casting directors I know. Like a lot of casting directors (seriously!) she is an advocate for artists. Whether you are an actor wanting to know more about what casting directors do, or you want to be a casting director yourself, I think you’ll find Cathy’s interview eye opening.
