Commercial Showreel

Nicci provided a fantastic casting service for us over the summer last year. Within a pressured timeframe and across 5 countries, she was able to present a collection of diverse, captivating and interesting characters, all of whom met our challenging brief. Nicci’s professionalism, resourcefulness, passion and creativity combined mean she was a joy to work with and we hope to have the opportunity to collaborate again sometime soon.

I’ve used Nicci Topping casting (Topps casting) for a number of years and can honestly say I’ve never been disappointed.  No matter what the brief or budget is, Nicci always gets the right people for the right job.  I would recommend them for any job big or small and I know they would certainly rise to any challenge and give you exciting fresh, new, or established talent.

About Nicci

About Nicci

Head Casting Director

Nicci Topping Casting is the brainchild of Nicci Topping, a unique human dynamo and Yorkshire entrepreneur who was always bound to help make magic in the creative industries.

Working across entertainment, advertising , film and all associated creative industries you certainly know when you’ve met her. The ambition, the wit, the humour and an unforgettable presence.

Even as a child from her bedroom in a terraced house in Huddersfield Yorkshire, she’d watch plays on TV and wonder and dress up her Barbie and then cast her for her own major production!

Some things are meant to be. After leaving college she landed a job as a casting assistant and worked on her first TV advert and the rest was history, Within 6 months she was regularly working between London, Manchester, Leeds and Huddersfield as a Casting Director shortly followed by her opening her own business Topps Casting.

Award nominations and literally hundreds of superstar placings later – TOPPS is now a premier company in the UK – a trusted favourite for agencies, advertisers, TV , production companies, Theatre and film. All who need the right kind of talent in the right role. Now.

The story of the girl from Huddersfield could actually read like a film of her own, (although she’d be too humble to admit it) having also changed the lives of many an aspiring actor or model over the years.
