Casting Director/Acting Couch
Wendy McKenzie has come into her own as a rising ‘in demand’ casting director, acting coach and motivational speaker. Stepping out from the shadow of her notable casting mentors; Tracy “Twinkie” Byrd, Anissa Williams and Tracey Moore, Wendy has defined her technique and approach to effectively create her own casting brand.

Wendy gives substantial credit to the prodigious directors that she has had the good fortune to work with on large scale projects. These directors include, George Tillman Jr., Dave Meyers, Brett Ratner, Lauryn Hill, Matthew Rolston, Queen Latifah and Antonio McDonald (MTV). She acknowledges that her keen casting eye and sensibilities have been enhanced by these director’s creative vision and mastery of the filmmaking craft.
Wendy continues to define and expand her proficiencies in the casting industry while staying relevant to the trends of the industry.
