Zora DeHorter

Zora is an independent film, television and commercial CASTING DIRECTOR. She has cast such films as “Ali G InDa House”, “Species III”, “Once Fallen” starring Ed Harris, Taraji P. Henson, Peter Weller, Sharon Gless and twenty-four other fabulous actors! “Once Fallen” won best director (Ash Adams) at the Los Angeles Film Festival in 2010. She followed that with “Sushi Girl” in which she attached Danny Trejo, Mark Hamill, Michael Biehn, Todd Todd, Jeff Fahey.

Zora had a stint as a casting consultant on an MGM feature about a dog (“Max”) and the three kids that save the day!

End of 2014 Zora cast a pragmatic gritty urban tale about Latino gangs set in East Los Angeles called “I Am Gangster”. This film proved to be a challenging yet gratifying experience casting sixty-six speaking roles. Then she finished off the year with a martial arts themed feature “The King’s Rook” (also known as “Untitled Livi Zheng Project”).

She has projects in development, such as an Urban dramedy set in strip club called “Tequila Rose” in which actors interested in participating include Dennis Haysbert (role of “Detective Jones”) and John Cho (role of “Jimmy”); “Becker’s Farm” is the true account of POWs brought in from Germany in the late 1940s to be farm workers in the MidWest; “To the Very Gates” a period piece set in WWII Germany; to name a few. So 2015 looks to be an exciting time for Zora!

Zora has also made a name for herself as an ACTING COACH. She coaches actors as they prepare for auditions. Her clients have included Neil Dickson, Hannah Cowley, Oliver Trevena, Darren Darnborough, Terence Beesley, Samuel Caruana to name a few!

Zora is represented by Stacey Castro (stacey@staceycastromedia.com) and currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
