Scotland based actors needed for "Forbidden Sun" Pilot

Actors needed for pilot of new Scottish mythological series - Glasgow

Casting complete. Applications are now closed.

Forbidden Sun (working title) is a series focussing on modern day superheroes, with their powers linked to ancient Scotland, charged with protecting the innocent from mythological creatures who are unleashed by an evil shape shifter and his partner, a distant relative of an evil clan who wants power and control.

We are currently developing and writing the series to pitch to major networks in the UK, US and Canada. Our plan is to shoot a version of the pilot at weekends in July in and around Glasgow to show potential distributors, networks what we can offer them.

As such we need professional actors to play the main roles, and supporting roles, in our pilot. Where possible we will provide travel expenses, show-reel material, catering and a copy of the pilot on DVD.

We are specifically interested in people with experience in sword fighting for stage, film and TV, and combat experience as there will be several fight scenes.

Auditions will be held on the 12th of May in Glasgow with script readthrough, rehearsals and promo done in June and filming to start in July.

Emily

is an utter book worm and a complete geek. She is shy and compensates by talking extremely fast.

Emily accidentally releases the first creature in decades and quickly goes into hiding.

Vincent is charming but he can lose his confidence if pushed.
