    Becky runs the 2020 London office under the careful supervision of Wellington, her dog.

  • Keenan

    Tara Keenan

    Tara spends most of her time out of the office and based on set, where her creativity and eye for faces has cast some of the UK's biggest films.

    She is coming to terms with the fact that a production radio won't ever fit in her Prada handbag.

  • Alex

    Alex Ong

    Joined 2020 Casting in 2010 after graduating University with a degree in economics. Alex grew up in the 80's watching every subtitled Kung Fu film ever made, ever. Although he has now been exposed to a multitude of film genres he likes nothing more than a feel good realistic action movie, like Aliens.

  • Houlder

    Francesca Houlder

    Is the newest member of the team. Prior to joining 2020, Francesca lived for 4 years in Barcelona. Her biggest loves include Arsenal football club, cocktails, holidays and Pedro Almodóvar films.

    Her biggest mistake is taking a job next to Westfield shopping centre.

  • Kelly

    Andy Kelly

    Andy has been working at 2020 for the last 10 years, becoming a permanent member of the team in 2012. Before then he worked as an actor, taking roles in The Last Detective, Saxondale, Wire In the Blood and, inevitably, The Bill.

  • Chuck

    Chuck Douglas

    Chuck joined the booking team way back in 1999 and is also the in-house photographer and general go-to guy for any computer-related or graphic needs.

    In 2004 he co-founded SA19, the leading agency specialising in armed forces and emergency services trained artistes.

  • Penny

    Adam Penny

    Adam joined the casting team, as a Drama graduate from Royal Holloway University, in 2012. He's a Northern lover of music, theatre and film, commonly mocked for his awful taste in almost everything. Best memory: performing at the Royal National Theatre.

    Biggest regret: saying that 'King Kong' was his favourite film in his 2020 interview.
