YOUNG EDDIE (Male, 4–6 years)
EDDIE is 5 years old. We will consider actors aged 4-6 but must have a playing age of 5 years old. No older than 6 years old (must be small if 6 years old). Ideally looking for actors who are small for their age.
Both parents of this role are of Afro-Caribbean heritage. We are looking for a really confident, outgoing and mature young actor.
MUST BE LONDON BASED
Accent: London or neutral accent only.
This role is shooting for approx 1 week between 10th – 28th Jan 2022 in London.
This is a flashback in our story in 1971 – this lovely young boy experiences the loss of his father in a terrible and deliberate attack. His mother goes to prison and Eddie goes into foster care. Please inform all parents/ guardians that the story has a dark edge. Naturally the child actor will not witness any scenes of violence but there are some scenes where he has to appear scared.
1 episode – 1 line but lots of reaction.
