Miranda Davidson Studios (MDS), one of the UAE's leading casting agencies, who recently provided extras for Star Trek Beyond and Brad Pitt's War Machine, have found a new home for their Dubai activities in the recently opened InterContinental Dubai Marina.

The agency will celebrate their new Dubai home with a ‘soft launch’ event on Wednesday, February 24, from 6.30pm, at the hotel’s Ynot bar, to which the public and aspiring actors are invited to meet the team and potentially launch their new acting careers.

MDS has been focusing its classes largely on Abu Dhabi recently, with a successful series of classes and workshops in acting, presenting and public speaking pulling punters into The Space at twofour54’s Khalifa Park campus.

Classes will now continue in both cities and, although the Dubai schedule is not yet finalised, full listings will soon be available at To register interest ahead of Wednesday's launch, or arrange to speak to a member of the team, email
