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.


Comedian Steve Whitley and his production company Offkey is casting short comedy “Swiped.” The team is looking for ethnically diverse young talent based in London that has experience with comedic acting or is great at improvising. All roles are for male talent, aged 16–21.

Jordan is into mindfulness and bettering himself. Kyle is an aspiring DJ with an adrenaline addiction and a million and one ideas and schemes. Laid back Ryan is a gym bunny, a biker, and a weed enthusiast. He’s always happy to go with the flow. He’s also a hit with women.

The short film rehearses in June and shoots in July in London. Each role pays £70 a day, plus travel and food. For more information and to apply now, head over to the casting notice.
