East Coast Casting: Principals/Featured Extras Talent    

"I’m particularly demanding when casting a drama because 80% of having a successful one is casting.  Casting Directors are an integral part of the film making process.  "Fighting For Freedom" is about human beings.  Carolyn's strong recommendation of the actors she brought was awesome.  She's relentless about bringing good actors to the room.  She's very pleasant with actors, consequently creating an atmosphere for actors to do more than their best.  It was terrific that Carolyn and I were able to look for the soul and bone of the character.  Carolyn organized the actors very well and was in contact with their agents. It would be a pleasure to work with her again."  ~ FARHAD MANN, Director
