AMC television series “TURN” is filming in the Central Virginia area and casting directors and producers are seeking actors for speaking roles.
Currently, Arvold Casting is seeking actors who look authentically from the Revolutionary War period for speaking roles.
If you don’t know, ‘TURN’ is based on the nonfiction book Washington’s Spies by Alexander Rose.
The story is centered on a band of young soldiers and civilians who were part of the secret spy ring during the Revolutionary War.
For more details see the following casting call details below:
Television series, SAG-AFTRA
Episode 107 shoot dates: February 7 – February 19, 2014
Series shoot dates: through March, 2014
Shoot Location: Richmond/Central VA area
All roles are regional hires/modified local hires (within 500 miles of Richmond, VA)
Seeking the following speaking roles for episode 107:
WARDEN – 30’s, Caucasian, a British warden aboard the prison ship H.M.S. Jersey. He resists when Robert Rogers questions him about the prisoners aboard his ship. He eventually complies, but not before complaining about the diversity aboard his ship, a snide remark meant for Rogers’ companions who are Native American and African Born. British accent mandatory.
JOSHUA LORING – 40’s, Caucasian, British Commissary of Prisoners, he haggles with Robert Rogers over the price of one of his prisoners. He feigns reluctance at setting free a POW until Rogers names the right price. British accent mandatory.
ADJUTANT – 20’s, Caucasian, a Continental responsible for delivering an urgent report to a superior. 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.
ONLINE SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS (2 steps):
Step #1: Open a talent application OR update your Agency Pro for Casting Directors account with us at this link: http://arvoldcasting.com/actors/ As you may already know, you do NOT have to pay to open an account. A non-active account grants two photos and a resume and this is all we need,
It will take a little bit of time to submit a new talent application, but please make certain your account with us is as complete and accurate as possible. To update your portfolio, find (at the top of your account) the link to “PORTFOLIO” and then “EDIT” and complete the instructions below.
Fill in ALL the information you can, including wardrobe sizes and acting experience. For men, if you do not know your suit jacket size, please go to a clothing store to be measured and/or try on suit jackets to determine your proper size, as this size measurement is highly important and needs to be as accurate as possible.
In your account, please put your most professional looking headshot. We’d also like to see at least one picture which represents what you look like RIGHT NOW. This means we would like you to take a close up picture of yourself today (without make-up) and upload it as one of your pictures on your account and/or email it with your submission. A cellphone picture is great.
