“This gripping and historically detailed drama-documentary brilliantly recalled the violence and the valour of the suffrage movement…played by a terrific cast of actors, some of the most powerful moments of emotional connection come from their testimony”
***** The Guardian **** The Times
“We’ve had the joy of working with Nikki on a couple of projects lately. Both wildly different to each other. One needed very precise, needle-in-a-haystick casting, the other a huge diverse range of colourful characters. In both projects, the casting would make or break it. Nikki got totally on board with our style of working, had an instinctive feel for what we were after, and delivered on all fronts. She also happens to be a pleasure to work with! Props to Nikki – we look forward to working with her again”.
‘We came to Nikki via a recommendation with a slightly tricky and very sensitive film to cast, with little time to play with. She immediately got a handle on the characters, the ambition of the project and our style of working and very quickly produced a plentiful choice of actors, from which we got our key characters first time. I’d highly recommend Nikki – she’s professional, delightful to deal with and clearly has a great working knowledge of current UK actors and agents.
