FROM TALENT & CLIENTS
…And that’s a wrap on our family's first SAG commercial together! Huge shoutout to my agents at Cast Images for always having our backs and putting me/us up for great roles! Love this job!
Dustin Forrester, Actor
I have felt 100% comfortable and confident with Cast Images from the start. The team has always been genuine, professional, and so helpful. Without them, I wouldn't have known how to navigate the industry in the beginning, and even now, with its ever-changing landscape. They are always so knowledgeable and patient with all of my questions. They are easily some of the most wonderful people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I know my family and our work is in good hands with Cast Images. We trust their advice and all of their projects. They have consistently shown us nothing but kindness, patience, and honest partnership. Cast Images continues to present opportunities to me and my family that I simply would not be able to do alone. Chandra and the entire Cast team put in work for their talent! I am beyond enthusiastic about recommending them. It’s an honor to be part of this agency. I am beyond grateful for their hard work, professionalism, and trust.
Alma Ponce, Talent
Simply put, Chandra runs an exceptional talent agency. We rely on Cast Images for our most complex, high-visibility castings, and are consistently delighted. The talent on their roster are highly skilled professionals, who reliably captivate their audience and carry the true message of a commercial or film. Chandra herself is an expert in her field and a joy to work with.
Taylor Lambert, Aura Casting
Cast Images is one of the BEST agencies I have ever worked with and I have worked with agents all over the world. They are super responsive, treat you like family, make sure you have consistent auditions and they also ensure that you receive your payment on time. I am so grateful to have them on my team of reps and for all the work I have received through them. Also, the whole team is so uplifting, positive, kind...just good people with good hearts. Thank you for everything you have done for me and for how you continue to support me in my journey.
Ayushi Chabra, Actor
I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate how nice you are to work with. The models were lovely, and I appreciate you.
Kathleen Williamson, Adventura
I wish I could truly express how much I love being a part of Cast Images. I have never felt more prepared or more empowered as an actor than I have felt since the day I joined. One year ago, I had the pleasure of working with 6 or 7 actors from Cast Images on what was at the time the most professional, organized, and fun shoot I had been on. At the end of the shoot, not only did the actors recommend I join Cast Images, but the hiring client highly recommended it as well stating that it was their first stop for professional actors. I could sense that Cast Images actually cared about their talent and were levels above any agency I had even heard of. Soon after, Chandra and Dena welcomed me in like family. They spun me up on important industry terminology and helped me create my first acting resume. Their communication has been upfront, timely and clear the entire time. Every client I've worked with has praised Chandra and/or Dena by name and told me that they would definitely be working with Cast Images again. I have felt fully prepared for every shoot and have had nothing but positive interactions with other Cast actors whom I've shared the screen with. My entire acting career has elevated to a new level. I feel like I could be sharing the screen with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and still represented by Cast Images!
Emilio Mils, Actor
Silver Legacy ad ...Ellen Hancock really made the piece and was just unbelievable to work with. I can’t express how good she was. Thanks again and it was a pleasure working with Cast Images.
Thank you for all that you do to protect your families, nurture their gifts, and inspire excellence not just in this industry, but also in other areas in their lives. Thank you also for going out of your way to negotiate projects for the benefit of your talents. You don't have to go the extra mile, but you do.
Aileen Del Rosario, Parent
Thank you for your recent contribution to our pre-winter fashion show! Without your support and assistance, our show would not have been such a success. You bring beauty to Sacramento and your models brought our clothes to life!
K. Mary, Owner, Krazy Mary's Boutique
I have been signed with Cast Images for about 3 years now and have nothing but good things to say. From day one Chandra, Jessica and Serena have been extremely helpful and professional. They take their time explaining everything I need to know on a booking or audition. Also would like to mention how caring and kind they sincerely are, which is sometimes rare in this type of business. I used to work as a Casting director in Southern California, working amongst many "pompous asses", so I was pleasantly surprised how comfortable I felt amongst these woman. They truly work each day to get the right jobs for their talent. Also wanted to put a kudos to Amber who has joined the team since I was signed. She is very sweet and determined to find work for the company's talent. I have since moved to the bay area, but will stay with Cast Images and will not change agencies because I always feel cared for by Cast and well informed on each booking and or audition. If you are considering being represented by a talent agency, I would highly recommend this company. Cast Images is not a talent "school" that wants your money, so you can be "famous". Beware of those types of businesses. This is a legit talent agency that represents individuals who are serious about working in the entertainment industry.
Heather Celeste, Talent
As always, your talent were strong pros, and easy to work with. Kudo's to all. Besides of course, you are just too damn much fun to work with!
Timothy Shonnard, photographer
Cast Images is a wonderful Agency. Without them, I would have still been very confused and lost about how this industry works. They are very helpful, knowledgeable, and kind. As a mother, it worried me a lot to put my daughter in this type of industry because there are a lot of people out there who would use your children's ambition and make a living off scamming them. I didn't want my daughter to get hurt or abused by these types of people. I know that my daughter is in good hands with the crew of Cast Images. And that's saying a lot. I trust their advice, their projects, and that they would never scam or abuse my daughter for their own benefits. I trust that they would never expose her in a negative way and they will protect her and explain any questions I have with professionalism and kindness. I asked so many questions, I was afraid I started to become a pest. But they understood and helped explained everything to me. I feel like I've got the hang of how this industry works now and I feel it benefits my daughter to know these things. Thank you so much Cast Images! You are the best agency ever!
Sandy Her, Parent
I want to thank you so very much for sending in SO MANY really talented young actresses. They were REALLY IMPRESSIVE. The director and producers were very impressed with the quality of talent that we have here in the Bay Area. I really look forward to calling you about your talent for future auditions.
Sarah Kliban, International Talent Casting
I have used C.I. talent for a few projects that I have worked on as a casting director. Booking through C.I. is quick and easy. Their talent roster is very diverse, which is great because I always need different types. There is a lot of great SAG talent here, which rare in Sacramento. Jessica always gives me a lot of options to chose from when she gets my breakdowns. Their website is easy to navigate, I can see headshots, resumes and demo reels. My clients have always given me positive feedback on their talent. Not only are the actors they represent talented, they are also professional on set. I will always call Cast when I need actors.
Julianne Gabert, Casting Director
I just wanted to say “thank you” for your help this past week — the shoot went GREAT and the talent your agency delivered were all on time (or early), very professional, and they all did a fantastic job!!
Ira Chute, Becker Media
Cast Images is an agency with integrity. The professional (and lovely :) staff are up-front, courteous but honest, and consistent. Chandra, Jessica, and Amber hold high expectations for their talent and have helped me to grow immensely thanks to their career guidance. Cast Images continues to open doors for me that I simply could not do alone. The staff is incredibly hard-working and puts in countless hours behind the scenes for their talent. It has been and continues to be an honor to be considered part of the Cast Images family.
Jessica Benz, Talent
Thank you so much for your partnering with Sac News & Review regarding Third Saturday. Thank you for your continued support Chandra- I am trying to keep fashion alive in Downtown Sacramento and you are a huge part of the success- you deserve an award. Best talent agency in the world!
Michelle Champoux, Special Events Director, Sacramento News & Review
Chandra, Thanks for letting us know about the Fashion Industry Forum. Emma and I both enjoyed the evening and learned a lot. Your story was really interesting, and what struck me, is even though you gave up the "training" side of your business, you are still teaching in very valuable ways by the way you conduct your business and the way you express yourself. As a parent, I am grateful that Emma has had exposure to a professional woman with so much integrity.
Sharon Aikens, Parent
Chandra, Thank you so much for being a part of our event here at IADT. You did an amazing job! It was good to finally meet you in person and hear about your experiences with the industry. We got great feedback about the forum from our students as well as the public. Your participation in this event made a key part of its success.
Richard Hallmark, Designer
I have to tell you that I’m impressed...I realize I am only one of dozens of talent on your VO roster; however, I feel like a commodity (or as talent should feel with an agency) with the follow-up phone call to ensure that I received the audition and to see if I can get it back. Even the recent occasion when Jessica took the time to reply and say that my audition had made her laugh. It’s simply nice to be associated with Cast Images – great team.
Rory O'Shea, Cast Images Talent

I can't say enough good things about the experience I had working with Cast Images. I was treated with utmost courtesy. Your staff was extremely helpful and accomodating. The talent, including hair and make-up artists, performed professionally, take after take after take, each better than the one before. From the initial auditions to the last shot on the set, working with Cast made my job as Director a real pleasure.
Richie Germinaro, Producer/Director Fat Box Films
I am grateful to you all for how many of my dreams you have made come true. I cannot believe I am on the cover of Sacramento Magazine! For this, and so much more, Thank you!
Ellen Hancock, Talent
I am truly grateful that Cast exists and is alive and thriving in the Sacto area. We need you guys! And we're lucky to have you! I ALWAYS tell my SF actor friends (who work with other less friendly agencies) how much I love you guys and how it's actually FUN working with you. So thanks for rockin'!!
Katie Rubin, Actor
My supervisor was extremely pleased with all of the models and the make-up artists. Thank you so much for your help and for finding us such quality professionals. We hope to work with you again on future projects. Thanks again!
Jennifer Borba, Thielen Partners
We just saw Madison on a Mercy commercial during the opening ceremony of the Olympics. It was so great! Thank you for giving Madison this opportunity.
Katie Hinshaw, Parent
The models were all EXTREMELY professional and fabulous to work with. I will definitely be using your models for future projects. They were phenomenal. I have beautiful pictures of them and we had a great time! Thank you again for sending me the wonderful models you did! You will be hearing from me again soon,
Jackie Christie; Jackie Christie, Inc.
The shoot went wonderfully. John and Mitch were truly a pleasure to work with. ..Theresa looks great on the cover, and the inside shots of Dalila, Jackie, Regina, Reuben, Jeannie and Jason look great. Thanks to you for all your help coordinating these shots!
Debbie Hurst, Sacramento Magazine
Tiffany is on the cover of the current Family Fun magazine. She is also on the current Pottery Barn Kids catalog. (Heather is on page 56). They are both on posters in PBK stores. Thank you all so much for your encouragement and support! Our entire family is grateful for all that you have done for us.
Heather, Tiffany, Ghet, and Michael Shinn
Working with Chandra now in casting the talent she represents, she is adamant to be sure to get the best pay the talent deserves. Chandra is immediately responsive and eager to book her talent on any projects we work on. I admire her work ethic and professionalism. Sacramento is very fortunate to have such a real, hardworking agent like her... thanks Chandra!! I truly appreciate you so much!
Sally Forcier, Casting Director
Amy absolutely loves the work she has been getting and gets very excited when it's in Sacramento because it's so convenient. She has been taking as many jobs as possible in San Francisco. Juggling sports, tutoring for younger kids, and keeping her grades up at school in conjunction with modeling has been an awesome experience for her. I can't tell you how much she loves modeling. Dressing up, wearing make-up, and acting are right up her alley. I'm grateful for this opportunity. It has been an incredible growth experience for her and, although it's work and sometimes hard work and tiring, to her it's also play. What better way to earn money than to feel like you're playing when you're at work
Jill Row (Model Amy Row's mother)
It was a great shoot working with you and the girls. Hope the models enjoyed the story also. We will keep in touch.
Terry Haggart Dir. of Phototgraphy Good Evening Sacramento
The shoot went great! High praise for all the models. They were very cooperative and professional....they got some great shots.
Jannette Eng, Posit Science
In this world of people that never seem to follow through (especially with people they've never even met!) it really has been a pleasure working with you!
Daniel Lee, Photographer, DKL Images
Hi, I just wanted to send you a quick email regarding the actors we used for yesterday's shoot. They were AWESOME! They really did an amazing job, took direction beautifully and were just all-around a PLEASURE to work with. I will definitely keep them both in mind for future projects.
Diane Legaspi, Executive Marketing Consultants, Inc.
I just want to thank you again for such great representation. Katherine and Michael were very professional and we are extremely pleased with the photos. Thanks again. We are truly satisfied customers. Feel free to add Water Pik Technologies, Inc. to your list of companies utilizing your services for print.
Kerri Petersen, Water Pik Technologies
I wanted to thank both of you for making it possible for me to work on Dark Portal as the Hospital Administrator. Lou Diamond Phillips, Megan Ward and the director Ryan were a pleasure to work with and treated me with kindness and respect. I couldn't have asked for a better day. Thank you & many blessings to you:)
Mary Mackey, Talent
Thanks so much, we really appreciate the communication and positive energy. You have always made it very easy for my daughter, Paige to benefit from the opportunities your agency has given her. She aspires to develop a career in the entertainment industry and the experiences you have helped her with have been invaluable. Thanks for your work.
Michelle Silvester, Mother
I just wanted share some of the pictures that I took when I was filming Smokin Aces and Dark Portal and I wanted to thank you and your staff for all the support, help and guidance you have given me. Thank you specifically for signing me when I thought I would never get representation in the Sacramento area.

Melissa Mom of 2 children with Cast Images
I just got my Sacramento Magazine in the mail today, Saturday, Oct. 29. The photo and article are amazing. I'm so proud to say that I was on the ground level of Cast Images when it started in 1991...actually you might say it was the basement level...when you started it in your home. What an honor to be associated with and represented by the agency. I want to acknowledge you for your commitment and dedication throughout the years.
Carolyn Flood, Talent
I am so impressed with your agency and how it is run!! You do an awesome job. THANKS SO MUCH!!!"
Danielle and Pam Perry, Model and Parent
I'm so glad that you are sharing this information about Casting Directors vs. Agents with your new talent. When I first started this profession, I had to learn the hard way. Keep up the great work.
Sarah Poynter, Talent
I have been signed with Cast Images for many years now and I have nothing but praises to sing. The agency WANTS you to get work and they do what they can to get you out there in front of clients. The staff always has good advice about how to increase your chances of booking a job and If you are willing to listen, put in the work and effort required, you will be successful. Also, whenever anyone approaches me about other organizations or "Modeling Schools" that they have encountered, I always steer them in the direction of Cast Images, as they are a legitimate agency. They are not trying to bilk you out of money and like I mentioned before, they WANT you to book jobs!
