Kristina Erdely is a London based casting director with over 25 years’ experience in the industry. Initially beginning as a theatre producer, Kristina migrated into casting features and High-End Television for the international market.

Kristina Erdely

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 a voting member of BAFTA and BIFA, is board of director of the CSA (Casting Society of America-European/London Chapter) and a member of PACT and BECTU.

As an advocate for equality both in front and behind the camera, Kristina is passionate about actively increasing diverse storytelling opportunities, inclusive productions, and has a rolling knowledge of the industry’s emerging talent.

Kristina’s recent television work includes David Fincher’s BAFTA winning Love, Death and Robots series for Netflix, for which she was nominated for the Artios Awards in 2020.

Other TV includes: The Royals for NBC / Lionsgate, and Blood Drive, a longform series for Syfy in the US, The Drowning for Channel 5 and All3 Media.

Toni_with_An_I received a BAFTA nomination in the short form television category in 2020.

Kristina’s recent film work includes the award-winning Eaten by Lions, directed by Jason Wingard, winner of ‘Best Film’ at the London Indian Film Awards and currently broadcast on Sky Cinema. Talent includes BAFTA winner Asim Chaudhry, Johnny Vegas and Antonio Aakeel who received the prestigious ‘Screen Star of Tomorrow’ after the film’s success.

Her work on In Another Life, also directed by Jason Wingard, won the 2017 British Independent Film Awards ‘Discovery Award’ and was named ‘Best Film’ at Raindance.

Jupiter’s Moon, directed by Kornel Mundruczo, was included in main competition for the Cannes Palme d’Or 2017.

“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')
