Anthony White

Senior Casting Producer (current)

Anthony has established himself as one of TV’s most sought after Senior Casting Producers and in 2017 he was selected as one of the Edinburgh Festival’s Ones to Watch. Anthony is regularly found shaping the first series of many of the most popular TV shows including Married at First Sight, Naked Attraction, ITV2’s The Cabins and Channel 4/HBO’s The Bridge amongst many more. Experienced in creating casting protocols, comprehensive casting strategies and oversee large teams – Anthony has worked on both high-volume projects and projects that involve tenaciously finding niche needle in a haystack contributors. Anthony has been working at Paramount since the end of 2020, overseeing the casting for multiple TV shows for both MTV in the USA and the UK. Being a queer black man himself, he is a huge champion of diversity and is passionate that all his projects include POC, people from the LGBTQIA+ community and people with disabilities.

Nominated by Sian Whomes,  Head of Talent Sony Pictures Entertainment

Anthony has established himself as one of TV’s most sought after casting producers. He can be regularly found shaping the first series of many of TV’s most popular shows including Married at First Sight, Naked Attraction and MTV’s True Love or True Lies. What sets him apart is his passion for and commitment to delivering diversity, inclusion and excellent contributor welfare across all his productions. Championing the onscreen portrayal of People Of Colour, people from the LGBTQIA+ community and people with disabilities is why I believe he is a future leader in our industry.

Anthony is proactive in his professional development. The majority of his experience is with pre-production and production/location so he has sought out opportunities to broaden his experience by shadowing in the edit. This course offers an excellent opportunity to support him in making the next step in his career.
