Hello and welcome to one of our shoutouts for projects casting around the U.K. As always there’s a mix of opportunities for all ages, abilities, and locations but do remember to check if you fit the bill before applying. Although we make every attempt to verify castings before we hit publish, please ensure that you do your own research before firing off those headshots and Backstage links.

“In Reality” is a student pilot from the National Film and Television School, one of the U.K.’s most prestigious school for TV and film production. The pilot episode for “In Reality” needs two strong females for their leads, both aged 21-25. The first lead, Ana, is a troubled waitress who avoids confrontation and has no social life. Latino and Hispanic actors are sought to play the role. The other lead, Mika, is a young woman from a black African family who is living through Instagram to distract her from dealing with an emotional trauma.

The pilot goes into rehearsal on Nov. 17 and shoots on Nov. 20 and 21 in Beaconsfield, U.K. Each role pays £75 a day, with travel and food provided. Apply by today right here on Backstage!
