She should be in her late 20s to early 40s and have a dry and well-timed, neutral British accent, with a slight smile and a hint of quiet authority. The video will record the week of Aug. 13 in New York City, and talent can be paid up to $500. The role includes one in-person, half-day session and up to one secondary, shorter session as needed.
