My name is Casey McDougal.
I graduated magna cum laude with a BFA in Acting at the University of Connecticut, then studied at the Berkshire Theatre Festival, working onstage with actors such as Garret Dillahunt and Linda Hamilton. At the urging of a friend working in the film industry, I soon began to work in film and joined SAG-AFTRA. I have performed in theatre, commercials, feature films, and new media around the country, including for groups such as Deana’s Educational Theatre. I also co-founded Bated Breath Theatre Company.
I have worked on major motion pictures as a production assistant and studied Video Production / Editing and Producing at the Institute for Advanced Media. In 2013, I founded Purple Kitty Productions, LLC to produce my own original content. In 2014, I attended the Cannes Film Festival to work as an intern for film producer Frederic Golchan (Radar Pictures), through Rob Ford’s Creative Mind Group.
Later that year, I earned a student Emmy award for my production work on a PSA for Newman’s Own Foundation. My original web series, “Holding,” was accepted into the 2014 Miami Web Fest, and won “Best Web Series” at the Hollywood and Vine Film Festival.
My short play, “Dans le Jardin,” had its premiere at the Krane Theater in New York City in August 2018.
Recent credits include Veep, Fresh Off the Boat, and Vice. I currently reside in Los Angeles.
