Jane began her career in Television working as a Production Assistant and Researcher. Over the past fifteen years she has gained a reputation for discovering new talent and is known for her fresh and innovative approach to Casting.
In 2001, she co-cast Dominic Savage’s award-winning ‘Out of Control’ (Michael Powell Award at Edinburgh Film Festival, Best Serial and Single Drama at RTS Awards). This required her to go beyond the usual demands of casting and meet real young offenders in an attempt to cast authentically. Following this, she was asked to find a cast of genuine 16/17yr olds for a new Channel 4 series. SKINS became a huge critical success and ratings winner. She discovered unknowns such as Oscar nominee and BAFTA winner Dev Patel, Oscar nominee and BAFTA winner Daniel Kaluuya and BAFTA winner Jack O’Connell. SKINS won Best Drama at the Rose d’Or, was BAFTA nominated for Best Drama and won the BAFTA Audience Award.
Jane cast ‘Chewing Gum’ (BAFTA for Best Female Comedy Performance) and E4’s ‘My Mad Fat Diary'(RTS nominations for Best Actress & Best Drama and BAFTA nominations for Best Actress and Best Drama). It was also nominated for an International Emmy.
Recent misc. projects include ‘LOADED’ (C4), ‘Clique’ (BBC) and the cult comedy series ‘This Country’ (2018 BAFTA nominated and RTS Winner of Best Comedy and Best Comedy Performance).
2018 sees the release of ‘Kiss Me First’ (C4/Netflix) and ‘Stath Lets Flats’ (C4).
Jane has worked with numerous TV production co’s including Hillbilly, HatTrick, Lucky Giant/NBC Universal, Tiger Aspect, Objective, Talkback, Newman Street, Channel X, Thames Talback, Big Talk and Retort.
