We are casting for a new Sky Atlantic show which will shoot in Calgary in Canada mid June - end of Nov. However the role we are casting for would only be needed for approx 3 weeks around October/November time.
The character is a young boy aged 8. We will consider up to age 10 if they are small. MUST HAVE OR BE ABLE TO DO A WORKING CLASS LONDON ACCENT. Please think natural though - we are not looking for the Artful Dodger!
He is undernourished, scruffy, sweet and adorable and lives with his alcoholic mum in a dirty caravan on an illegal puppy farm. We need an exceptional young actor for this role. He needs to be incredibly natural and be able to portray a range of emotions including vulnerability, sadness, terror and courage.
If you think your child is suitable for the role please tape them doing this scene. We want natural performances so parents please do not overly direct your children. Please send a link to view the tape to:
Please DO NOT send the tape as an attachment.We would like you to please load the tape to Vimeo (and password protect the clip) so we can stream the link to view. As the scene is short the file will be small so hopefully there will be no issues with this. Please do not upload to Youtube.
Apologies in advance that we can’t respond to every submission. We will be in touch should we want to invite your child in for a casting in London.
Please do NOT email us asking if we are casting for other roles.
