About StarNow

The founders: Nigel, Jamie and Cameron

London, 2004. Three Kiwi expats (handsome lads named Cameron, Jamie and Nigel) are chatting with their friend, Erica, who is struggling to find work as an actress. After bouncing around a few ideas, a lightbulb goes off: the world needs a website to help Erica, and others, get cast. Boom! StarNow is born.

The goal behind StarNow was to connect talent with casting professionals, and allow them to apply to castings. Fast forward to today, and StarNow is the leading auditions and jobs website for actors & extras, models, dancers, photographers, crew, stylists, and musicians. Pretty cool for an idea that stemmed from helping a mate land some work!

The boys brought in a team of brilliant minds (if we may say so ourselves) who have helped grow StarNow to over three million members worldwide. We work with some of the industry's top players, with dominant market positions in the UK, Australia, and New Zealand, together with a growing market position in the USA, Canada, Ireland, and South Africa.

We're building the biggest talent community on Earth, and we'd love you to join us and be a part of it!

How does StarNow work?

Casting professionals can list an audition or job for free on StarNow, manage applications and contact members online, and also check out member profiles in our Talent Directory.
