Due to Covid rules we need to cast a real mum, dad & 2 kids.
Mum & Dad will be the ones interacting closely with the kids. Although we would like to try and stick to the below brief, we are aware that we are casting a real family so it is harder to get the below exactly. Please apply if wife / husband or kids may not be actors but are happy to appear in this commercial in order to make the family dynamic/brief work!
We are looking for a diverse, interesting and engaging family with a strong bond who are likeable, friendly and believable. It’s important there is an on-screen chemistry between them.
Regional accents – Midlands, Merseyside, Cardiff and Manchester and beyond all welcome!! We are looking to cast nationwide for this family.
Our family consist of:
- Mum: Early forties… quintessentially Mum, likeable, warmth easy-going and perhaps too forgiving – has to swallow her pride when it comes to Deborah. But she clearly indulges in her lack of patience here – it’s all eye-rolls and sighs. She feels very easy to relate to in that sense.
- Dad: Early to mid forties, somewhat unkempt and slightly dishevelled – very likeable, endearing. Dad is constantly treading on egg-shells with Deborah – he’s indirect in tone and how he handles these situations as he tries to keep everyone sweet.
- Kids: Girl, 11-12 years old. Boy, 8/9 years old. Not twins! Warm and likeable, but they are both typical teenagers. We get a real sense of the sibling-rivalry at play: She’s texting, he’s got his VR headset on – they’ve been squabbling after a long day at school or it’s a weekend afternoon.
Also if the family are based outside of London – accommodation and travel will be provided by production.
*** Please do not apply if not part of a family unit!
