Bonnie Gillespie is living her dreams by helping others figure out how to live theirs.
Bonnie (she/her) built her empire by demystifying the casting process and illuminating the business side of pursuing a creative career starting with her first weekly column for actors in 1999. These days, she connects with storytellers all over the world, as she teaches curriculum from the most popular of her books, Self-Management for Actors (named one of The Top Ten Best Books on Acting Ever Written).
When not jamming with showbiz creatives about enoughness, growth, leadership, and #CreatingTheHollywoodWeWant, Bonnie — a proud member of the Television Academy — casts indies like the Machinima zombie smash hit BITE ME, which made the leap from web to TV with Lionsgate in its second season. Most recently, Bonnie lent her casting talents to Twitch‘s first Emmy-winning series, Bernie Su’s Artificial.
Whether casting, coaching, or creating Chart Harmony as The Astrologer’s Daughter, Bonnie Gillespie is passionate about leaving this world better than she found it.

Bonnie lives in the unceded ancestral land of the Tongva Peoples in what is now called Santa Monica. She shares her creative life with the luckiest man in the world, screenwriter and script doctor Keith Johnson.
