Liz Lewis CSA

Liz Lewis, CEO of LLCP in New York and Los Angeles, has been at the forefront of the casting industry for more than two decades, and continues to be unparalleled in her ability to secure the perfect talent for commercials, film, television, and theater. Forgoing the cookie-cutter approach of larger agencies, Liz runs a venerable casting boutique that hears each clients’ needs so the perfect match is found. While she personally has a hand in all of the projects that come through her office, she has cultivated a collaborative team who bring their own diverse talents to the table.

The proof of Liz’s talent is in the pudding: she cast the original voices of the EMMY NOMINATED Nickelodeon show, Peter Rabbit, received a 2009 CSA ARTIOS AWARD nomination for OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT IN CASTING for Stormy Weather, a 2008 SLAMDANCE AUDIENCE AWARD for BEST NARRATIVE FILM for The Project, cast the voices for the OSCAR NOMINATED documentary Sound and the Fury, and the NY FILM FESTIVAL OPENER animated short, Knitwits. Additionally, she assembled the original and subsequent line-ups for The Daily Show. In the process she discovered many of the improv and sketch actors that have risen to stardom in the past fifteen years.

Liz is proudly associated with the Casting Society of America, Women’s Business Enterprise National Council, Women President Organization, Women in Film and Television, Association of Independent Commercial Producers, and the British Academy of Film and Television.
