Actors Lisa Hammond of EastEnders, Mat Fraser from American Horror Story, Julie Fernandez from The Office and Eldorado, and Liz Carr from Silent Witness share their experiences. We also hear from the Chairman of the Casting Directors Guild Andy Pryor, agent Louise Dyson, film critic Nick Duncalf, and Alison Walsh, the BBC's Disability Lead.
