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.

It’s always tough casting a character at different ages, and that’s why short film “The Conductor” is on the search for a younger version of their lead.

It tells the story of Martha, a female conductor in her sixties, who is suffering from early onset dementia. The team needs a female actor, aged 18-25, to take up the role of the young Martha, a passionate musician who yearns to become a conductor.

Ideal candidates will have blue eyes and red hair and need to be able to play a neutral accent. Filming will take place on Dec. 8–10 in London. Pay is £85 per day.

Sound like it could be for you? Apply here by Dec. 7.
