Award-winning production company looking for female actor and female child actor for short self-contained horror film in the West Sussex countryside. This is a paid opportunity.

'Hide' follows the story of Katherine, a recent widow and single mother, the loss of her husband still weighing heavily on her soul. Burdened by her care for her daughter Cassie, she frequently indulges the girl in games of Hide and Seek, and keeps in constant close contact with her through the use of a walkie talkie.

One night, their secluded little house is invaded by a creature, an expert hunter that can mimic any sound it hears. Finding Cassie missing, Katherine sets off on a desperate search throughout the house, following her cries for help. Unfortunately for her, the voice she hears no longer belongs to her daughter…

This film will be screened at international and national horror festivals, as well as released through online distribution platforms.

Hi everyone,

Thank you all so much for the overwhelming response we had for this listing. We were thrilled to see such a fantastic range of talent on offer, and Starnow was just one of many casting networks we utilised in our search. As we have now cast both roles, we will shortly be closing this listing.

Apologies if we were not able to reply to each of you individually - there were so many profiles, intros to camera and self-tapes to go through, but it's very encouraging to see such a fantastic community at work.

Wishing you all the very best and have a fantastic week,

Since the death of her husband, Katherine has put her life on hold. Her relationship with her daughter marks the focus of her day, to the extent that she is at a loss for what to do during her alone time. Soft and tender in her interactions with Cassie, she can also be fierce and protective when danger arises. Also, unlike many other protagonists in the genre, Katherine has actually seen a horror film in her time.

Female, aged 30 to 45

Applications closed 28 July 2021.


Cassie is a playful, thoughtful child, closer to her mother now since her father's death. Often indulged and doted on, she is still well-behaved, and uses her favourite game, Hide and Seek, to distract both her and her mother from their recent bereavement.
