Kristina Erdely is a UK based film and television casting director.

Kristina began her casting career in 2007 when she was asked to do the UK casting for the internationally acclaimed ‘Bibliotheque Pascal’. Having been an actress and theatre producer for 15 years prior, she was already familiar with the casting process and this project made her realise that casting was to be her life-long career.

Kristina has a natural eye for spotting talent, with an instinctive ability to understand what the director is looking for. Knowing what it’s like to be on the other side of the camera, Kristina works with actors to get the best performance from them during the casting session.

Kristina is experienced in casting films of varying budgets as well as high-end television and working with both name and up and coming talent in the UK and internationally.

Having cast a number of European co-productions Kristina has built good working relationships with many agents throughout the continent. She also works on US, Canadian and Australian productions.

“Our brainstorm entailed many überfamous names, but weirdly enough my casting director had exactly the same name in mind as me. She saw the same face on the character as I saw it when I wrote it.”
Bjorn Tagemose, Director of Rock & Roll Wonderland (working title, in production)
“If you work with her, be assured that for each role, she’ll find at least five perfect actors.”Szabolcs Hajdu, Director of Bibliotheque Pascal & Mirage
“Huge thanks and congratulations Kristina Erdely for being so brilliantly helpful in her method of auditioning actors. I distinctly recall all three auditions before being offered this part as she has a rare ability to completely put actors at ease.” Philip Rosch, Actor (Oppenheimer in 'The 100 Year Old Man')
