Danielle Eskinazi is an award-winning casting director with an eye for talent and a sixth sense when it comes to spotting substance beneath the surface. With over two decades casting films, television, theater, and commercials, Danielle has cast such known talent as David Bowie, Rosanna Arquette, and Woody Harrelson, while discovering new talent including Hank Azaria and Milla Jovovich. She is highly respected in the business for her creativity, integrity, and ability to draw out audition-nailing performances.
Danielle has been nominated for the Talent Managers Association prestigious Seymour Heller Award for Best Commercial Casting Director of 2009, and was a runner up twice for Favorite Commerical Casting Director in BackStageWest.
She has been sharing her insights by teaching workshops at such venues as the Stella Adler Theater, and speaking on panels including one at the SAG Foundation, which was aired Internationally.
With the rise of social media, Danielle started using Twitter to tweet her down-to-Earth, insider take on what makes a winning performance. Over time she noticed a pattern: actors were asking her for advice, and clamoring for more than just 140 characters. ACTVICE was born to meet that need for positive, one-on-one feedback from a seasoned casting director. The competition for roles and representation is fierce, and it is Danielle’s mission to give actors a leg up with honest critiques of audition tapes and professional reels.
