For over 25 years, Maryclaire Sweeters has cast films, pilots, voice overs, pod-casts, and thousands of TV commercials.

Maryclaire started out helping friends at UCLA Film School with their student projects and she soon fell in love with working with directors and actors, finding that special face and character visually and viscerally right for each project. After gaining experience as a journeyman assistant for various busy casting directors, she opened her own company, FACE IN THE CROWD CASTING.

A native of Los Angeles, Maryclaire has worked on films, commercials and TV projects across the country and abroad. She has gained through experience a distinctive style and aesthetic. She loves collaborating with directors; actively attentive to help them achieve their vision for each project.

In addition to casting through traditional agent pathways, Maryclaire has also cast commercials using “real people” nationwide for hundreds of commercials. She also has an extensive comedy backround using her connections with The Groundlings, Upright Citizens, Acme, The Comedy School, etc. During the pandemic she pivoted and became extremely adept at using virtual casting methods such as Self Tapes and Zoom, expanding her networks to wherever the director needed her special talents. She can work with whichever method of casting is best suited to the project. She is delighted to return to the casting studio where she can help actors shine the brightest.

Maryclaire works with a wonderful creative and experienced team so she is ready to focus and collaborate. She has the vision, experience, passion and originality to make each casting unique. Check out some of her projects here on this site and contact her if you have any questions.
