ProFile: Championing D/deaf and Disabled Performers

with No Comments

In October 2017, the National Theatre (NT) and Spotlight launched ProFile – an online video database of d/Deaf and disabled actors for the use of casting directors, directors and other industry professionals across the UK film, theatre and TV industries. ProFile is a free service both for actors and for industry users, and its aim is to champion this group of actors within the industry and to help increase their representation on our screens and stages.  

The site has been promoted to all of Spotlight’s film, theatre and TV casting contacts, the Casting Directors Guild, and over 400 contacts from the UK theatre industry – directors, producers, writers and a range of other theatre makers, and since its launch in October has had over 6000 visits from over 1000 unique visitors. The site is password protected, but access can be requested by any UK industry professional.
