NINA GOLD CASTING SEARCHING FOR BOY & TEEN ACTORS FOR EXCITING NEW TELEVISION PROJECT
CROSSING THE BORDER is a brilliant new 4-part drama by Peter Kosminsky ("Wolf Hall"; "The Promise"; "Britz"; "The Government Inspector') for Channel 4.
This is a drama about the Islamic State – and the British men and women who travel to Syria to join it. It isn’t about radicalisation. It starts on the Turkish border. It’s about life in the Caliphate – why some Brits might choose to go there, what happens to them while they’re there and why some of them might decide to leave and try to get home.
It’s fiction – but based on a year of intensive research.
We are not looking for highly experienced stage school kids. We are looking for natural, appealing and charismatic London teenagers with good energy who can rise to the challenge of playing a leading role opposite a top-notch cast.
Aged 16 -19yrs. Asian British. Londoner.
Small and soft but with an iron resolve and surprisingly steely determination.
A terrific leading role in this major new series.
Aged 19-21yrs. British Asian. Londoner.
This is a major leading part in this drama. We are keen to see very sharp, street-smart British Asian performers who are aged 19 for this remarkable tv opportunity.
Aged 8 – 12yrs. Black British.
We are looking for a very talented, serious, soulful boy who has great maturity for his age. He is not a posh boy - he has grown up in London suburbs with a very articulate and dynamic mother. He is gentle, methodical, organised and perceptive beyond his years. He should be hugely charismatic and must be able to hold his own alongside adult actors.
