WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"Paul Weber saw a skinny, uncredited actor audition for the role of a hulking, iconic gladiator. Everything I knew about auditions told me, no matter how hard I tried, I didn’t have a chance. Paul taught me the things I assumed about casting could be wrong – a good casting director will see the potential, regardless of the situation. His vision, belief and advice through the audition process was instrumental in me getting cast in Spartacus, something that has opened an entire career to me, and completely changed my life.”
 
– LIAM MCINTYRE (STAR OF “SPARTACUS”)
