November 10—The first Fox Casting Mix & Mingle event was held at the renowned 57th Fighter Group Restaurant this November.
This first-of-its-kind event was the brainchild of Fox Casting owner & principal casting director, Jessica Fox-Thigpen. “I wanted to do something to give back to the acting community” Fox-Thigpen said, “It’s their hardwork and dedication and the tireless efforts of their agents that allow me to do what I do.”
The 1940’s era World War II canteen made a unique setting for a unique party: among the foxhole sandbags, B-52 airplanes and jeeps, agents and actors could be seen dancing and catching up with former cast mates from the numerous series, features and industrial work cast by Fox-Thigpen and her associates. “I’m hired by producers, but it’s the relationships I have with the many agents and actors that drives our success,” Fox-Thigpen says, “We rely on actors & agents as much as they rely on us. It’s a true collaboration!” Fox Casting aims to make this an annual celebration and keep the party going in 2017 and beyond.
