Ros Hubbard is the legendary Irish casting director, who, together with her husband John, founded and has run Hubbard Casting since 1976.

Born in Dublin she has worked and lived in London for almost forty years. Ros has extensively cast for Hollywood as well as the UK and Irish film and TV industry. Together with John they have cast films such as The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Hobbit, Evita, Angela’s Ashes, The Mummy, The Bourne Trilogy and The Da Vinci Code, working closely with Hollywood directors such as Peter Jackson, Paul Greengrass, Sir Alan Parker and Ron Howard. Irish projects include The Commitments, Father Ted, Bloody Sunday, and Angela’s Ashes.

In 2014, she was inducted into the American Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, and in 2018 she joins the Irish Academy’s honorary Membership, receiving this Irish Academy’s Honorary Industry Award, sponsored by Spotlight.

A Member of the Irish Film and Television Academy’s Film Committee, Ros has been a guiding light and a great inspiration for thousands of actors; she is hugely active in the Irish industry and regularly presents Acting & Casting Masterclasses. The most recent project she has cast is Journey’s End, starring Sam Claffin, Paul Bettany and Toby Jones.

Ros and John have brought several well known actors to fame, having discovered Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Colin Farrell, Orlando Bloom, Sienna Miller and Kate Winslet. Hubbard Casting is based in London, where Ros and John’s children, Dan and Amy, are hugely successful casting directors in their own right.

Ben Seale, CEO of Spotlight, said: 

“We’re delighted that IFTA has recognised the work of casting directors. It’s absolutely essential that the efforts of casting directors are celebrated by our industry, which is why Spotlight is so proud to be sponsoring this award. We hope that this will set the standard for all other major awards ceremonies to acknowledge the skills of casting professionals as well.”

Founded in 1927, Spotlight is a world-famous casting resource of over 60,000 professional performers and is used daily to cast hundreds of roles across stage, television, film, radio and commercials.
