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.  

“The Horsemen” 

Passion project “The Horsemen,” from indie company Sunipa Pictures, needs a romantic lead to star in the trailer. Hoping to take the project further, the trailer will be a key tool in attracting larger funding.

The team is casting the role of Tom in this tale of a modern-day highwayman in rural England. He’s the romantic lead, so you’ll need to look the part and be physically strong. The ability to ride a horse will be a distinct advantage, as will a convincing Lincolnshire accent.

The trailer shoots over four days between May 19 and 27 and is paid £150 per day, plus expenses. This includes an international buyout for the footage.

Think this casting is for you? Apply here on Backstage before the March 30 deadline.
