My name is Jackie Lind and I am a Canadian casting director based in Vancouver whom on several occasions have been invited by Simon Longmore to sit on a panel to judge VADA's annual show case. I am always pleasantly surprised with the calibre of actors in this event. They are well trained, confident and passionate students. For many years I have known Simon Longmore as a gifted actor, and of late have had the opportunity to see him pass on his talent and wealth of experience to his students. I am always confident when I have the opportunity to call any of his students into my auditioning room that they will be well prepared, professional and focused. VADA is a great school and I would recommend to anyone!
