African American Boy Principal Role Casting Call for AMC’s New Series TURN

Project Casting

Casting directors are currently seeking an African American boy ages 9 to 14 to play an extra role with the possibility for a recurring speaking/principal role in the new AMC series, TURN.

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving! We are searching ASAP for an African American boy age 9 to 14 years old to play a background role who may possibly be upgraded in future episodes to a speaking/principal role in the AMC television series TURN.

It is imperative that the young actor has a natural quality & presence, a thin physical stature and is under 5’8″. Longer natural hair is a plus. This is for a Revolutionary War period show, so no braces, piercings or tattoos.

Please send your photo and resume and state your name, age, city/state of residence and phone numbers to [email protected]

Also, please state that you are available all day on Dec. 10th (if indeed you are available that day). We are casting this role FAST, so the sooner you submit, the better.

And if you have a tape or demo reel, please include that as well. Thanks so much and enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend!

AMC’s TURN is a new series by the network that brought you Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead. Turn is set in the summer of 1778 and tells the story of New York farmer Abe Woodhull (Jamie Bell), who join together with a group of childhood friends to form The Culper Ring, an unlikely group of spies who turn the tide in America’s fight for independence. British actor J.J. Feild  from Captain America: The First Avenger has been cast in AMC‘s pilot Turn. It is expected that J.J. Feild will play Major John Andre, head of British counterintelligence in the Revolutionary War. Andre’s brand of spy craft involves turning assets through seduction, bribery, and manipulation.
