Casting agencies of Finland
In this article, Roletik would like to introduce a couple of Finnish casting agencies representing actors as well as amateurs from the Nordic and Scandinavian region.
Casting agencies in Finland have one thing in common - they are open to the public, making it easy for people to register and easy for film productions to seek new talents. Anyone can join for free by filling in a simple form available online. HELSINKI CASTING has in fact developed the biggest and most progressive online actor database in Finland called Faces by HELSINKI CASTING. Members get notified about upcoming new open roles and can scroll through the latest casting calls for films, tv shows, and advertisements on the site. Helsinki Casting works with Finland’s leading film and advertising production companies. They support a fair and functioning system in the Finnish movie industry, where everyone working in front of the camera, from professional actors to extras, is compensated equitably. They aim to make a change in the Finnish casting culture.
Roolituspalvelu, which literally translates to role-service, might as well be the longest operating casting agency in Finland, being founded in the late 90s. By providing roles for movies, tv shows, commercials, and music videos, their database consists of professional actors, students of acting schools, amateurs, assistants, as well as dancers and opera singers. You might even find magicians, circus artists, and stunt actors in it. Compared to other agencies we mention, Roolituspalvelu is the only one that casts a video game. They are always on the lookout for new faces, both Finnish and non-Finnish speakers.
LISA RICHARDS NORDIC
Finally, we’d like to write about LISA RICHARDS Nordic, the Helsinki based branch of The Lisa Richards Agency. The agency was originally founded in Ireland’s capital and later opened 2 more branches in London and Helsinki. They represent actors, comedians, voice-over artists, directors, and screenwriters. Having such a multinational database, naturally, attracts a variety of European film and tv projects. Most recently, LR Nordic cast actors for an upcoming Netflix and MGM’s series. A vast majority of their actors, along with previously mentioned agencies, are awarded and nominated.
Well, there you have it. Of course, there are plenty of casting agencies all over Finland just waiting for you to discover. Hopefully, we were helpful on your journey and we wish you luck and fintastic casting experience!
Until next time,
PS: Let us know what you think and if we helped you on your acting journey!
