Hi, can anybody tell me if there is any difference between "cast" and casting"?

I have always heard cast ( the group of actors, but I also found casting meaning exactly the same). Which of these two is mostly heard?

Many thanks!

Hugs!

    The cast is the people who star in a production, the casting is the process of choosing people to star in a production.

    Many thanks, Tazzler!! I had that idea, but then, I started doubting as there are too many mistakes in this translation.

    Thanks again!

    Have a great day! :)

    I have never heard of 'casting' referring to the cast. Staffing a perfomance's cast is called casting. There is also a "casting" director.
