Hubbard Casting is run in London between Ros, John and their children, Dan and Amy Hubbard and the team has found cast members for international hit films such as ‘Green Zone’; ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’ and ‘The Bourne Supremacy’; ‘United 93’; ‘Evita’ and the ‘Da Vinci Code’.
Where Irish projects are concerned, the Hubbards have filled many celebrated film and TV sets for features and TV dramas such as ‘Into the West’; ‘Father Ted’; ‘Best’; ‘Bloody Sunday’ and several projects with IFTA Industry Contribution award winner, Morgan O’Sullivan including ‘Moll Flanders’; ‘The Nephew’; ‘Angela’s Ashes’.
Irish Film London is honoured to have Ros as our first patron. Festival Director Kelly O'Connor said "Ros has been a great inspiration for years. She has worked incredibly hard, kept her focus, and always pursued her goals, no matter how big the hurdles. She has been a guiding light for thousands of Irish actors, young and old, and together with her family, she has ensured our country's creative talents have upped their game to meet the very competitive international standard that this industry demands. Both Ros and her wonderful husband John have had such a huge impact on the world of Irish Film, and far beyond it and so it seems a very natural link to have this connection. We are very excited about the coming years of partnership.
