Chris Snode Casting (CDA) specializes in sports castings, taking on unique, unusual and challenging projects and delivering great quality, even with very tight deadlines. We are London-based, casting throughout the UK and worldwide.

Chris is one of the longest-running and most experienced casting directors in the industry and is supported by an outstanding team of assistants, backed up by a dedicated group of researchers. He has cast and advised on many award-winning commercials over the last 30 years, including the Guinness/ AMV BBDO “ Never Alone” commercial which won Gold in the 2016 Cannes Lions Awards.

After competing in the 1984 Olympics as a World Champion diver, Chris returned to the UK and founded Chris Snode Casting. He very quickly established a reputation for casting exceptional commercials, applying his extensive knowledge of the sports industry and his detailed understanding of what each project requires.

“In the early 90s, Chris began to develop a significant international network, giving him access to remarkable talent from the Americas to Asia and enabling him to fulfill challenging briefs where others may have difficulty.”
