Jess HS cropped - Version 3Jessica Fox-Thigpen – Owner/Casting Director

Jessica Fox-Thigpen honed her casting eye in the mid-1980’s with Mick Dowd Casting in Los Angeles, where she secured talent for commercial campaigns, and the Orion Pictures film Hoosiers starring Gene Hackman. Accounts included Toyota, 7-Up, Bud Light, AT&T, Cheerios, Maybelline, Ford and others. In 2015, Jessica began Fox Casting in Atlanta and the company has quickly become the go-to place for studios, producers, and directors to secure the best principal talent. Recent projects include 62 combined episodes of hit TV series Swamp Murders, Your Worst Nightmare and Dead Silent for Investigation Discovery; and U.S. casting for the upcoming Bollywood feature, Simran, directed by Hansal Mehta. Jessica is known for being an advocate for actors and a champion of clients. She understands that great casting takes more than just spotting talent; it’s built on the strength of relationships, the effectiveness of communications, and the efficient organization of the casting process.
