Alison Buck, Bohemia Group Executive Vice President, International

Growing up in a musical and theatrical family, entertainment was always the goal for Alison Buck. A brief stint in the corporate world gave her valuable insight on how to play the game, but after many years she craved something more creative. So, with a smile and an oath to never wear pantyhose again, she hopped a plane to Los Angeles.
After spending a few years in commercial casting, Alison moved on to the talent management company Bohemia Group, where she began to manage actors. It was here where the casting bug hit her. She was asked to cast the film Big Heart City. Working with actors (and more then a few lines of dialogue) made her realise that casting films was a whole new world and she wanted to be a part of it.
Since this realisation, Alison has built up a diverse casting resume. She has cast union and non-union films, traditional format and new media, small and larger budget films, and reckons that she has a knack for being able to attach professional and skilled talent no matter what the fim budget. She only has one caveat - a passion for the script.
In management, Alison is the Executive VP on an international team. Working in management and casting has allowed Alison to be a control freak in multiple areas - which she likes!
