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.

TV Drama

A well-known TV drama is filming in Lancashire and Yorkshire next month and the team at Slick Casting is looking for supporting artists with a base in Manchester, Yorkshire, Sheffield, or Leeds. Slick cast everything from “Poldark” to “Peaky Blinders” with plenty of feature films and ad campaigns on their CV, too, so when they say well-known, they likely mean it!

The team needs white female performers, aged 17–70, with a dress size of 4–8 and males with a waist size of 28”–34”. They’re also looking for Asian, Black, and mixed race performers, also aged 17–70, who are based in the locations listed above.

Filming will take place on location in March and is ongoing. The production pays FAA PACT approved rates.
