Alumna takes home Premier’s Award
 
Congratulations to Sheridan alumna Stephanie Gorin (Music Theatre ’81), winner of the 2017 Premier’s Award in the Creative Arts and Design category. 
 
During her 26-year career as a casting director, Gorin has cast for more than 200 musicals, movies, and television shows, including the all-Canadian production of Come From Away, the film-adaptation of Stephen King’s IT, and Shazam! for New Line Cinema.  Her TV credits include Black Mirror Arkangel (directed by Jodie Foster), Anne (CBC/Netflix), and Frankie Drake Mysteries (CBC). She’s a five-time Emmy nominee, and won in 2014 for Best Casting for a Mini-Series for Fargo. That same year she won an Artios award from the Casting Society of America; she’s earned six Artios nominations in total, as well as three Gemini nominations. Gorin is well-known among her colleagues for supporting new talent in the industry. She champions young actors in auditions, and is the creator of The Casting Room, an award-winning web series that uses humour to show actors how to nail an audition.
