"There's an old expression that says casting a film is 99% of the work. Casting directors are the gatekeepers for directors and producers: locating spectacular new talent, rooting for fresh faces and making sure the cream of the crop get seen by those who matter." – Backstage West
"Kim Hardin knows actors. We have had the good fortune of Kim being a guest at my Artist at Work series at my Hollywood Acting Studio. Kim's spirit and energy carry over into her passion for helping actors. My students have raved about the information she has given them, and her knowledge of the Industry.
