‘SUCCESS LEAVES CLUES’
AS HBO’S FORMER VICE PRESIDENT OF CASTING, AMY WORKED ON DOZENS OF CRITIALLY ACCLAIMED, AWARD-WINNING PROJECTS
As a former casting director and network executive, Amy Jo Berman has been a powerful influence and taste-maker in the entertainment industry for nearly two decades. As Vice President of Casting at HBO for 14 years, Amy oversaw and facilitated the casting of more than 150 films, mini-series and series, and her casts have won countless Emmy and Golden Globe awards.
While at HBO, Amy worked on dozens of critically acclaimed projects with highly regarded directors, producers and actors worldwide. Some of Amy’s best-known projects include John Adams, Recount, Game of Thrones, Angels in America, The Pacific, Elizabeth I, Grey Gardens, Rome, Boardwalk Empire and Game Change.
In addition to her eye for recognizing new and emerging talent, Amy has a unique gift for working with actors and extracting performances of which even they didn’t know they were capable.
When it came to casting, Amy believed that each project brought unique benefits and challenges. Having 14 years of experience at a major studio, combined with her creative vision, Amy has a unique perspective and an ability to view a project from sides that others might miss.
Not only did she focus on the pure creative value of connecting the right actors with the right roles, she knew how to do so in a way that will benefit the entire project. Although every project begins with talent in the forefront and serving the creative vision of the director and producers, an experienced professional like Amy knew how to facilitate the collaborative efforts of all the parties involved in order to get a project green lit, produced, nominated and, of course, celebrated.
