Very Tall and Thin Actor Required to Play Death in a Music Video

Very Tall and Thin Actor Required to Play Death in a Music Video

Huddersfield, UK. Apply from all UK.
Listed by View details

We are looking for an actor to play ”The Grim Reaper” in an ambitious music video which explores bereavement and facing death.

To apply you must be:

Easy traveling distance to Huddersfield, West Yorkshire

Male or non binary (trans male also fine)

At least 6ft- the taller the better?- and slim/ skinny

Present between 30 and 70 (we’re flexible on age but don’t want the character to be too young looking)?

Gaunt with high cheekbones

Race not important but must be comfortable wearing makeup that makes you look old, pale and tired

Comfortable shooting outdoors

Easy to work with- we don't care how talented you are if you're a giant pain in the arse.

Despite the music video itself being very theatrical and surreal in nature, we’re not looking for a theatrical performance. We want someone with the ability to be quite frightening and cold but who can also show real vulnerability born of weariness.

The shoot will half a day and take place in roughly six weeks. The exact date will sadly require some flexibility as we’ll be shooting outside and will have to cancel if it rains heavily. However, in return, we are prepared to be flexible with you too and, if another paid job or important audition comes up, we can work around your schedule.

Rate of pay is dependent on experience.

More details including the full concept of the video, the song and examples of our previous work will be made available to you should you be interested in the role.
