Testimonials

I have worked with Jay Simon for many years whilst I was a casting director at the BBC and a production co-ordiantor at various independent production companies.

Jay has always shown the utmost professionalism and a total dedication to each job. He grasps the essence of any character he’s portraying and demonstrates a clear understanding of each project. There were times when he didn’t see his lines until an hour or so before a recording but always treated these circumstances as professionally as he did when he had a few days to study the script.

He is a pleasure to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him for any job.

Best wishes
