Spotlight is the largest casting resource in the United Kingdom. Founded in 1927, it has over 70,000 actors, actresses, presenters, dancers, and stunt performers in its database.[1]

Spotlight is used by thousands of mainstream production companies, broadcasters, advertisement agencies, and independent casting directors. Clients range from large organisations such as the BBC, ITV, and Channel 4 to smaller production companies.

Spotlight publishes its "Contacts" handbook both in hard copy and as an e-book. It includes listings for over 5,000 companies, services, and individuals across all branches of film, television, stage, and radio.

Spotlight is one of the most successful companies in casting, generating over £10 million per year. Although established since 1927, it only registered as a limited company in 2010. It does not disclose its profits publicly.
