Stacy Gallo’s Casting career spans over twenty years and began when she was recruited to launch the in-house casting department for the world renowned production company Hungry Man.  She led the department to prominence while spearheading the use of improvisation in commercials before starting her own casting company in 2008.  Today, Stacy Gallo Casting is one of the premiere casting offices in New York City casting award winning projects, including many notable commercial campaigns, and innovative digital content in addition to many Celebrity campaigns.  

Aside from casting, Stacy has also taught at various learning institutes including Actors Connection and The Upright Citizens Brigade Theater of Improvisation. Upon the closing of the former, Stacy has expanded her classes online. She along with Phil Cassese of Stewart Talent, have adapted their popular UCB class to fit an online format. This class, and several others they have developed have garnered continued success and sell out on a regular basis. 

For Stacy, casting is not “just a job.” She truly loves what she does and her passion stems from her appreciation for actors. “I love actors and enjoy finding them the perfect role. In doing this, we make our clients happy as well. It’s a win-win!”
