The Dumping Ground, the BAFTA-winning children’s drama series inspired by, and set in, Jacqueline Wilson’s fictional children’s home, will be returning to the channel for an action-packed third series next year, and producers are hoping to find identical-looking children to play twins in the programme.
Young people from across the UK who are interested in a career in acting and can pass for identical-looking twins are being invited to submit audition videos for a chance to star in the show, which is made by the CBBC Productions in-house drama team in Salford.
Lis Steele, executive producer of The Dumping Ground says:
“We’re not looking for professional videos or previous acting experience, just bags of enthusiasm and a spark of natural talent. We’re hoping to find some real stars of the future and can’t wait to see who comes forward to audition.”
Filming for the series will take place in Newcastle this summer between June and mid-November 2014.
The closing date for applications is 21st March 2014.
To audition for the role of a pair of identical-looking twins, please film and send back these three audition scenes from The Dumping Ground.
To audition you should be between the ages of 9 – 13 years old but should ideally be able to pass for a 10 year-old.
In order to be considered, applicants must obtain their parent/guardian's consent. At the start or end of your audition your parent/guardian must be filmed saying the following to the camera: “I am (parent/guardian's name) and I am the parent/guardian of (your full names). I can confirm that I have read and agree to the terms and conditions of entry on the CBBC website and I give my consent for my twins to send in their audition films.”
If you do not obtain your parent/guardian's consent your audition can not be considered.
Auditions should be sent by post on a dvd or memory stick to:
The Dumping Ground Casting
A consent form must be completed by your parent/guardian and included in the package with your auditions. The consent form can be found with the audition scenes.
For the full terms and conditions and audition scenes please visit the CBBC website.
Described as a man of contradictions, Ross Poldark has a strong sense of social justice but a contempt for authority. He’s a man of principle yet frequently a rebel. Reckless yet full of integrity. Charismatic but down-to-earth. Volatile yet fiercely loyal. Torn between two women and two social classes. A hero to most, a scourge to many.
Britain is in the grip of a chilling recession... falling wages, rising prices, civil unrest - only the bankers are smiling. It's 1783 and Ross Poldark returns from the American War of Independence to his beloved Cornwall to find his world in ruins: his father dead, the family mine long since closed, his house wrecked and his sweetheart pledged to marry his cousin. But Ross finds that hope and love can be found when you are least expecting it in the wild but beautiful Cornish landscape.
Aidan Turner says: "I'm very excited to play Ross Poldark for the BBC and it's obviously a huge challenge to honour the extraordinary character Winston Graham created and who Debbie Horsfield has brought new life to. But there's a terrific team coming together and the scripts are superb, so I can't wait to get started."
Damien Timmer, executive producer for Mammoth Screen, adds: “Ross Poldark is an iconic role - we needed an actor with the right combination of striking looks, youthful rebelliousness, emotional complexity and maturity of presence which hints at the man he becomes across the saga. In our minds there was only one candidate. Happily he said yes!”
Andrew Graham, author Winston Graham’s son, adds: “I am delighted at the choice of Aidan Turner as Ross, as I am sure my father would have been. Ross in the novels was a man of dark good looks, impulsive temperament, strong loyalties and deep emotions. I am greatly looking forward to seeing Aidan bring all these qualities freshly to life.”
Poldark is an 8x60-minutes series, adapted by Debbie Horsfield and made by Mammoth Screen for BBC One.
Directed by Ed Bazalgette, filming begins in Cornwall and Bristol in April 2014 and the series will transmit in 2015 on BBC One.
Further casting will be announced in due course.
Poldark was last adapted into a highly successful BBC series in the 1970s where Ross was played by Robin Ellis.
