Miranda Rivers is a NZ based Casting Director specialising in film who has been working in the industry for 17 years. She has worked on a diverse range of films including the Hobbit, Avatar, King Kong and the Oscar winning The Lord of the Rings Trilogy to name a few.

Having come from an actors’ background, Miranda has the advantage of knowing how it feels to be in an actors skin which enables her to have a dialogue with actors. She enjoys the challenge of finding the right people to fit the vision for the project and bringing unique creative practitioners together.
