Nina Day is the founder and executive casting director of Nina Day Casting. To her, casting is the pinnacle for elevating content and opening doors to what human representation can and should be.
She is an expert in leading talent driven creative projects for narrative and integrated media, with her passion rooted in advocacy for growing the vision of who we see with an everlasting appreciation for talent. Starting off scouting for the fashion industry globally and leading New York casting research for independent film during the mumblecore era, Day discovered a passion for research and discovery as a young casting assistant in New York City. Eager to push boundaries in the casting world beyond buzzwords but with authentic work, she launched her own agency in 2009. As a first generation Indian American she recognized it was important for diversity initiatives to be actively led by the marginalized, often misrepresented in the media.
Notable projects include specialty casting for HBO’s critically acclaimed series Girls, collaborations with icons including Dr. Maya Angelou and Sharon Jones, Toronto Film Festival darling, The Missing Girl, modern gothic horror favorite Sweet, Sweet Lonely Girl, and hundreds of globally celebrated branding campaigns. Nina Day’s daily motivation is to expand the boundaries of what storytelling can mean for entertainment and cultural growth. A graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Day is an active member of the CSA, contributing to the Equity in Entertainment, Commercial, and Technology committees. She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY with her husband and two children.
NINA DAY is a casting and creative agency, passionate about the limitless discovery of who will tell your story with elevated authenticity. Our mission lies in expanding who we see in our media, leading to diverse stories and innovative growth for brands, consumers, and visual storytellers. It’s our cultural obligation to continue fighting for inclusive casting and creative evolution.
