The character is a young boy aged 8 (they 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 – not 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.
The role would only be needed for approx 3 weeks around October/November time.
If you think your child is suitable for the role please tape them doing this scene: Click Here
Sky is looking for natural performances so parents please do not overly direct your children.
Please send a link to view the tape to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please send the tape as an attachment. Please load the tape to Vimeo (and password protect the clip) so Sky 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 Sky can’t respond to every submission. They will be in touch should they want to invite your child in for a casting in London.
Please DO NOT email Sky asking if they are casting for other roles.
