  2. Erica Arvold began casting professionally in 1991 after graduating from The Theatre School at DePaul University (formerly Goodman School of Drama). She had fallen head over heels in love with the craft and art of casting when interning on Ron Howard's BACKDRAFT the year prior. She learned, practiced and rose up the ranks while spending five more years in Chicago casting film, tv & theatre and conducting searches for studios and networks. Her natural move to Los Angeles provided her a decade of continued work on studio projects and catalyzed her passion for independent films. Now with offices in Atlanta, GA as well as Charlottesville, VA, Erica not only enjoys the variety of projects and searches that her company, Arvold, takes on, but has a passion to share the love & craft of filmmaking with her associate casting directors. Arvold most recently cast the indie feature PERMANENT and has served as location casting director for Jeff Nichols’ feature film LOVING, the AMC series TURN: WASHINGTON'S SPIES and two seasons of Netflix’s HOUSE OF CARDS. Arvold produced and cast the indie film JOSEPHINE, served as associate producer and casting director on COMING THROUGH THE RYE, helped cast feature films ITHACA and KICKED BY GRACE and National Geographic’s KILLING KENNEDY. Erica was nominated for CSA’s Artios Award for the location casting of Steven Spielberg’s LINCOLN in 2013 and for the casting of independent feature BIG STONE GAP in 2016. She served as casting director for Ridley & Tony Scott’s KILLING LINCOLN, Hallmark Movie Channel’s LAKE EFFECTS, and cast and associate produced indie features WISH YOU WELL and TEXAS REIN. Erica also produced and cast the psychological thriller HOUSE HUNTING. Over the past 28 years, Erica has contributed to and participated in the making of over 130 films, 80 television projects and numerous short form and commercial projects. Erica is grateful to the many writers, filmmakers and actors who have entrusted her to collaborate over the years.
