Casting Call for new ITV drama

Daniel Edwards Casting is looking for 3 teenage leads for a superb 3 part drama for Mainstreet Pictures for ITV written by the wonderful Paula Milne. This is a contemporary drama / domestic horror with a superb and unexpected twist.

Overall shoot dates: Approx mid January 2016 for 7 weeks.

Unfortunately we can only consider actors within a 20 mile radius of central London, if you live outside Greater London then you must have a London base available.

VERY IMPORTANT - For all three roles - Playing age 17/18 - only accepting applications from actors between the ages of 17 - 21 ONLY (no younger or older please)

1. LEAD BOY (character name tbc) THIS IS THE LEAD ROLE IN THE SERIES - Caucasian

Has absorbed an urban swagger despite being MIDDLE CLASS, hoodie up, headphones in, hip hop blasting in order to switch off from a reality he finds difficult. Rage and disappointment against his parents, disdain against authority and apathy towards a world that feels alien to him.

ACCENT: NEUTRAL / MIDDLE CLASS WITH AN URBAN FLAVOUR

2. FAITH - SUPPORTING LEAD ROLE - Black or Mixed race

She is rather bookish, and very academic , uses her intelligence to lose herself in college work to disguise the pain she feels about her life.

ACCENT: NEUTRAL

3. AFZAL - SUPPORTING ROLE -  Asian, Indian, Middle Eastern, Pakistani

The best friend of the LEAD BOY confident, charming and energised, all about the fun and all about the girls! . Potential scenes on his moped so actors must be comfortable with that possibility (lessons would be given and all safety aspects taken into account)

ACCENT: NEUTRAL - WITH AN URBAN FLAVOUR
