Like her husband, Georgianne Walken worked in the entertainment industry. Now, she’s not an actor like Christopher Walken, although she has starred in a couple of projects. Instead, Georgianne put her focus into being a casting director. According to Studio Binder, “A Casting Director is a liaison between the Producer and Director, and the actors and their representation … they are tasked with filling the character roles based on what the director is looking for.” Georgianne is sure to know all the ins and outs of being a casting director as she began her career in 1989 with the film “Point of View.”
Since her work on “Point of View,” she has catapulted to success as she helped cast some of the biggest television series including “Entourage,” and “The Sopranos.” In fact, her work as a casting director has been recognized with some of the highest honors. Georgianne has been nominated at the Emmys a total of nine times. The casting director finally got to take home the coveted award for outstanding casting in a series in 1999 for “The Sopranos.” Emmys aren’t the only awards Georgianne has received. She has also won several trophies for the Casting Society of America. So, step aside Christopher Walken, because there is another Walken that has taken over Hollywood.
