Please send audition and a short description (or resume) of yourself and your experience to firstname.lastname@example.org and all audio should be in MP3 format.
Accessibility: If you require additional support, including Deaf or Blind accessibility to the sides/directing assistance, please feel free to reach out. I also encourage soft recording due-dates to help with anyone who needs that level of flexibility based on income, working hours, and other mitigating circumstances. I have been and am able to do last-minute rewrites to accommodate emergencies and self-care required on behalf of the actor.
Representation: I heavily advocate for more diversity in media and for that reason people of color, trans people, and people from other marginalized groups are particularly encouraged to audition. Trans women are encouraged to audition for Nadia Pillai. Nonbinary folx can audition for the character and, depending on discussions with a selected actor regarding pronouns, Nadia’s pronouns are open to change. ONLY INDIAN OR SOUTH ASIAN ACTORS WILL BE CONSIDERED FOR THIS ROLE.
Anyone who is cast will also be encouraged to be an active part of the character-development process. While this show is also subject to sensitivity reading prior to sharing scripts with the actors, actors who also contribute to sensitivity work/consulting with the character will be compensated accordingly.
Anyone who is cast will also be encouraged to contribute voices for side characters and walla.
CHARACTER BIO + SIDE
Preferred age range: Any
Pronouns used in the script: She/her (this is not fixed)
Only Indian or South Asian actors will be considered for this role.
Bio: Nadia Pillai is an unregistered changeling, which leaves her vulnerable to government action as well as discrimination. She participates in community building with Grimmer & Daughters and is beginning to get in touch with her own unique magick as a half-human half-fae person.
I, Nadia Pillai, am here to represent those changelings, and others, who require sanctuary.
I mean, how sad, right? But it’s not too bad. I survived past 16, which was a surprise. Now I have no idea how long I’ll last, so I keep searching. I’m not even sure what I’m looking for. It’s addictive though. The search. The hunger. Sometimes I feel like I’m drowning in it, starving. There’s no one else who has really understood that. They look at me, and they see someone who is just what’s the word? Aggressive. Ladder-climber. Ambitious. Whatever. But it’s more than that. It’s darker than that. It’s like I’m still grasping for something that’s long dead.
Isn’t that dangerous? Isn’t that going to make things worse? We...changeling magick hasn’t fit well on either side of the border.
