Experienced – Internationally Orientated – With a Dutch Work Ethic
That’s me. I’m an independent Casting Director, Acting Coach, Drama Teacher and Theatre Director who graduated as a First Degree Teacher Training in Drama in Europe in 2006. I’m a member of the Casting Society of America and a three-time ARTIOS Award nominee (2016, 2017 and 2018) and one-time winner (2017) for Outstanding Achievement in Casting for a Drama Series – BLOODLINE. With more than fifteen years experience in Teaching, Directing and Acting under my belt I currently work as a Casting Director and Acting Coach between Barcelona, Miami and Amsterdam. Before this I worked as a Casting Associate and Acting Coach for more than five years at Lori Wyman Casting in Miami, and as a Teacher and Director for ten-plus years in Miami, Boston and The Netherlands. My work experience includes amazing TV-shows and movies such as Bloodline, Ballers, War Dogs, Dolphin Tale 2 and many others – for full IMDb page click here. The work approach I relate to is that of the Dutch nature: efficient, no-nonsense, hard working and fun.

Looking forward to working together soon!
“I’ve been on television and have done movies and TV for almost 23 years now. And when you want to improve your craft you have to practice your craft. Working with the right coach is essential in this, in finding out more about yourself as a performer, especially as an actor. Working with Therese has been nothing but fantastic for me. Finding out my range, being more confident and comfortable and understanding the material that I’m working with. Working with Therese has already made me a better performer. So there you go, even an old dog like me, who’s been on TV a long time, can learn new tricks.” — Paul Wight, Actor and WWE Super Star (“Big Show”)
“I had a great time working with Therese. She really understands the actor and has great instinct. She’s extremely professional and really gives you as an actor a lot to work with.” — Enrique Murciano, Actor (Blacklist, Bloodline, Power, Without a Trace)
“Thérèse is simply wonderful to work with! She has a unique understanding of the Actor’s creative process, balanced with the performance requirements to nail the role from a casting perspective. She truly gets it! Her genuine and calming demeanor builds a ‘circle of trust’ that every Actor craves from an ‘Acting Partner’. You don’t leave the room until she has got the best performance out of you, and you are happy with the end result. I ALWAYS walk out very happy!!” — Sope Aluko, Actress (Black Panther, How To Get Away With Murder, Bloodline, The Mindy Project, Pitch Perfect 2)
“In the 20 years that I’ve made a living as a professional, working actor I have met few casting directors that match Thérèse’s professionalism. She is focused on providing a safe, encouraging environment that invites you to ‘be.’ When working with her, one is reminded that no choices should be made without presence: no doing without being.” — Chaz Mena, Actor (Bloodline, Magic City, Pain & Gain)
“Therese does an amazing job of putting me on tape, wonderful to read with and knows how to give direction for the best audition! I’ve booked several gigs using her taping services, Two Thumbs UP!” — Arlyn Broche, Actress (The Have and Have Nots, Ballers, The Inspectors)
Thérèse has put me on tape numerous times for many projects and each time she gives me notes and adjustments that bring my audition to the next level. Every time I work with her, I leave feeling confident that I gave my best audition! I am so incredibly grateful for all I have learned from her. Thérèse always makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera and is a pleasure to work with!
