Calling all non represented actors!

We are offering a fantastic opportunity for non represented actors to audition for the award winning TV programme The 4 O Clock Club.


We are holding a casting for the roles on the following breakdown (Represented actors please go through your agent, thanks)...


ROLES AVAILABLE:

Carson (Young Male)
The school heart throb. Very good looking and very intelligent. Looks like a boy band member. He is confident and sure of himself.
Playing age 15
Ethnicity Any


Sasha (Young Female)
Quite pretty, she is studious and is in love with Carson. Can be a little bit OTT with her affections towards him.
Playing age 14 – 15
Ethnicity Any


Mad Scientist (Adult Male)
He is presenting a poorly conceived, badly attended science based theatre show. It is very light on scientific content and many of the facts are just plain wrong. He probably started out as an actor in TIE and never progressed.
Playing age 37 – 42
Ethnicity Any


Martin Thompson (Young Male)
Fit, tall, slightly edgy year 11. Could possibly be someone over 16 to play down.
He's a Mummy's boy but puts on a heavy masculine act at school. The other kids are genuinely frightened/impressed by him and he has an unapproachable air about him. He's not very intelligent.
Playing age 15 – 16
Ethnicity Any


Mrs Thompson (Adult Female)
Martin's Mum. She is someone really nice. Fussy and overprotective.
Playing age 42 – 45
Ethnicity Any


Sister Dorothy (Adult Female)
Religious school's gym teacher. She's a bit like the gym teacher "Sue from Glee". She's a slightly intimidating nun. Very athletic (under the garb) she won't take any nonsense. The girls play netball in fear of her.
Playing age 45 – 55
Ethnicity Caucasian


Briony (Young Female)
Tall, attends the convent school and plays netball. She's a bit on the posh side.
Playing age 16
Ethnicity Caucasian


Hopkins (Young Female)
Small and nerdy. Obviously not suited to netball.
Playing age 12 – 15
Ethnicity Any

Two young British actresses join Series 5 of Game of Thrones

14 year old Nell Tiger Free (represented by Independent Talent) has joined the cast of Game of Thrones, to play Myrcella Baratheon. Myrcella Baratheon is the child of Cersei Lannister and the late King Robert Baratheon, though in truth her father is Cersei’s own brother, Jaime Lannister. In the second series she was shipped off to be the guest and ward of Prince Doran, betrothed to his son, and hasn't been seen since, but things are set to change with the death of Oberyn Martell, the Prince’s brother.

Nell is best known for her starring role as Chloe in the BBC adaptation of Mr. Stink.

In Series 4, Myrcella's brother Tommen was also recast, the role going from Callum Wharry to Dean Charles-Chapman, star of CBBC's The Revolting World of Stanley Brown.

Jessica Henwick (represented by Tavistock Wood Management) joins the cast playing Nymeria (“Nym”) Sand, the second eldest of the late Prince Oberyn’s bastard daughters. Her mother was an Eastern noblewoman who brought Nym up to be cultured, graceful and deadly with a whip. Jessica starred as Bo in the CBBC series Spirit Warriors, and was a series regular Amy Lang in the third series of BBC legal drama Silk.


The Casual Vacancy

Filming is underway in Stroud, Gloucestershire and surrounding villages, on The Casual Vacancy, the BBC One/HBO adaptation of JK Rowling’s global bestseller.

The confirmed ensemble cast includes Michael Gambon, Keeley Hawes, Rory Kinnear, Monica Dolan, Rufus Jones, Michele Austin, Julia McKenzie, Keeley Forsyth, Lolita Chakrabarti, and Richard Glover, alongside whom casting director Lucy Bevan has assembled a cast of newcomers for the younger stars.


Abigail Lawrie (represented by Gordon & French) stars as Krystal Weedon. 18 year old Abigail, was a pupil at Harrodian School, the same school as EE BAFTA Rising Star nominee George Mackay.

Simona Brown (represented by IAG) plays Gaia Bawden. Simona appeared as Kim in acclaimed BBC Three docudrama Murdered By My Boyfriend, played Jazz in CBBC series Wizards vs Aliens, and earlier this year filmed on Big Talk feature film Man Up.

15 year old Welsh actor Joe Hurst (represented by On It Artists) plays Andrew 'Arf' Price. Joe, from Usk, has previously appeared as a guest lead in Casualty, and played Young Pete in Private Peaceful, and filmed Nickelodeon show Camp Orange.

Brian Vernel (represented by Curtis Brown) plays Stuart 'Fats' Wall.
Brian is currently in his third year at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and starred as Dale Lomax in ITV1 thriller Prey. Last year Brian was nominated for Best Actor at The Stage Awards for his performance in The Static.

16 year old Ria Choony, a pupil at Sylvia Young Theatre School, plays Sukhvinder Jawanda.

The three one-hour part miniseries is written by Sarah Phelps, produced by Ruth Kenley-Letts and directed by Jonny Campbell.

 JK Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy has sold more than six million copies worldwide since its publication in 2012.
