Cassiah is an award winning writer/director based in the West Midlands, represented by SMA Talent.
Cassiah grew up travelling between the UK, USA and Canada. Film and theatre were always at the core of Cassiah's life; be it performing in the basement of an Aunt's house, or writing a Jackie Chan inspired script Hawaii Spy at age 9.
Unsure whether she would end up in front or behind the screen/stage, Cassiah went on to study Drama and Theatre Arts at the University of Birmingham where she graduated with first class honours. She fell in love with writing after a summer in the USA and was hooked.
Cassiah soon got her 'lucky break', meeting Bend It Like Beckham director Gurinder Chadha OBE on a train. She worked with Gurinder for a year on her theatre and film projects, and maintains a close working creative relationship.
Since then, Cassiah has had 3 writing commissions; directed 3 music videos; been involved in 2 feature films; and had her play Under My Thumb nominated for a national award and debuted at Greenwich Theatre, London in September 2016. The play toured in 2017 in London, Brighton and Edinburgh to critical acclaim.
Currently, Cassiah is in post-production on her second short film Woman of the Night and her original drama series is in development with Gurinder's company Bend It TV.
