AMC's 'TURN' Acting Auditions for Several Speaking Roles in Viriginia

The producers and casting directors for AMC's new television series are now casting speaking roles for the 9th episode of the season.

Arvold Casting is seeking actors who look authentically from the Revolutionary War period for speaking roles. AMC's Turn is centered on the nonfiction book by Alexander Rose, 'Washington's Spies'. The series focuses on a band of young soldiers and civilians who were part of the secret spy group during the Revolutionary War. casting_call_AMC_series_turn

Seeking the following speaking roles for episode 109:

LUCAS BREWSTER – 60s, Caucasian. Caleb’s frail uncle who suffers from MS.  Has difficulty defending himself after he is accused of conspiring to commit murder.  His accent should have a British flavor to it, somewhere between an English and an American accent, reminding us that the colonies were still very tied to England and that these families had only been here for a few generations.

WALTER HAVENS – 40s, Caucasian.  Secretly a patriot, he reluctantly gives up his shotgun when Redcoat forces commandeer the town’s guns.  Older brother of Peter.  His accent should have a British flavor to it, somewhere between an English and an American accent, reminding us that the colonies were still very tied to England and that these families had only been here for a few generations.

PETER HAVENS – 30s, Caucasian. Careworn and flinty, he worries about the danger of his family’s patriot beliefs being outed.  Younger brother of Walter.  His accent should have a British flavor to it, somewhere between an English and an American accent, reminding us that the colonies were still very tied to England and that these families had only been here for a few generations.

SAMUEL LUDLOW – Late 40s, Caucasian. Stout and mouthy, he gets into a heated argument about his family’s loyalty.  His accent should have a British flavor to it, somewhere between an English and an American accent, reminding us that the colonies were still very tied to England and that these families had only been here for a few generations.

REDCOAT SENTRY – 20s, Caucasian. Delivers an important message to his British superiors. Authentic British accent required.

MOSES PAINE – late 30’s – early 50′s, Caucasian.  Tries to pander to the British and it blows up in his face.  His accent should have a British flavor to it, somewhere between an English and an American accent, reminding us that the colonies were still very tied to England and that these families had only been here for a few generations.

SCOUT – 20’s-30’s, Caucasian.  Makes a surprise discovery while out scouting.  His accent should have a British flavor to it, somewhere between an English and an American accent, reminding us that the colonies were still very tied to England and that these families had only been here for a few generations.

WOMAN IN CROWD – 40′s – early 50′s, Caucasian.  Vocally objects to the public abuse of a sick old man.  Her accent should have a British flavor to it, somewhere between an English and an American accent, reminding us that the colonies were still very tied to England and that these families had only been here for a few generations.
