Amy Christopher

After receiving a BA in Theatre from Bennington College, Amy pursued a career in casting which has now spanned over 20 years. It goes without saying that Amy’s many credits speak for themselves, but to write them all down here would just be boring. Instead, here are the spark notes:
 
She landed her first casting gig at The Roundabout Theatre Company (1997-2003), casting both Broadway and off-Broadway productions (The Man Who Had All The LuckJunoAnd The PaycockMajor Barbara). At the same time she also cast The Williamstown Theatre Festival’s Main Stage and Nikos Stage productions, notably: As You Like It, The Rivals, Street Scene, and The Taming Of The Shrew. She has worked with directors John Crowley, Scott Ellis, Joe Mantello, Nicholas Martin, Dan Sullivan, Christopher Ashley, David Warren, Darko Tresnjak, and Michael Grief, just to name a few.
 
From 2003 to 2013 Amy served as Vice President of Casting for Fox Broadcasting Company, casting both pilots and television series including “24”, "Prison Break”, “Glee”, “Bones”, “Raising Hope”, “House”, “The New Girl”, “That 70’s Show”, “Malcolm In The Middle”, “The O.C.”, “Lie To Me”, “Fringe”, “Arrested Development”, and ”Touch”. She recently co-cast the films Before/During/After and The Rest Of Us, and the Pulitzer Prize winning play Water By The Spoonful (Mark Taper Forum).  
 
Amy has been a guest teacher at Juilliard, Yale, Brown, The Actors Centre and The Atlantic Theatre Company. 
 
Please don’t bother looking Amy up on IMDB, she will eventually get around to putting up her credits but in the meantime just ask her for her resume.
