Motivated. Ambitious. Driven.
To meet Elisabeth Bekkevard is to meet the essence of an empowered person. From the moment you see her vibrant fashion choices and electric smile to hearing her infectious laugh, actors realize they are meeting a force of nature and together magic will be created.
Elisabeth grew up in Norway. Sailing the fjord and coasts of Scandinavia and beyond. Her travels brought her from the waters of the Amazon to the heights of Machu Picchu. Immersed in the Spanish language and zest for life she attended design school in Barcelona and found herself and her creative people in Los Angeles. For over a decade she worked in the film and television industry and learned the insight ropes. By working with major Hollywood productions, small budget theater, acting workshops and helping children write original screenplays - she has built a foundation of passion for the industry.
Working in film and following her strong intuition, Elisabeth created a space for herself in the casting world of Norway. Elisabeth's eye to recognize talent, detail, organization and love of creative people is the very essence of great casting. She is relentless and won't stop until the perfect actors have been cast. In the audition room she directs and works WITH the actors to make them deliver their very best.
Elisabeth continues to learn, create, evolve, improve and relate to the actors and creatives in the moving pictures universe.
You can find her on summer days tending to her garden and in the winter ice-bathing in the fjord.
Adventurous. Opportunistic. Entrepreneurial.
Aaron loves actors and the magic of film. His experience as a professional caster is proving challenging and fulfilling. Aaron seeks the truth from the actor in the audition room. A great performance is the goal of any actor and when needed, Aaron searches for the actor's unique nuances in the performance and magnifies it. The actor’s success is his success.
Aaron grew up in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in eastern Ohio. His imagination ran wild along the creeks, valleys and rolling hills. Pirates, soldiers, spies, dragons and a life of adventure were common themes in his childhood.
Seeking fame, fortune and year-round sun, Aaron moved to Los Angeles in 2004.
Auditions and classes followed but fame and fortune were fleeting although he eventually found his 15 minutes of fame in China on the 15th season of Survivor.
While in Los Angeles, Aaron teamed with The Young Storytellers Foundation, teaching children how to write their own original screenplays. Aaron shepherded classes of ten children and ten adults through the process of acting improvisation, creative story arc and character development. The class culminated in an original screenplay written by the child and the screenplay performed by professional actors on stage in front of an audience of classmates, family and friends. Witnessing professional actors analyze and perform the scripts in an extremely short period of time educated Aaron on what is and isn’t valuable in the audition room.
On the weeknights and weekends you will find him cooking up new creations in the kitchen, professional wrestling with his five year old daughter or fixing broken things.
