ARABIC SPEAKERS

THE SCRIPTS ARE NOT TO LONG ONLY A FEW LINES.

THIS IS FOR THE MIDDLE EAST SO THEY MUST BE FROM THE MIDDLE EAST AND BE OF MIDDLE EASTERN HERITAGE. We can look at talent from all close-countries to Saudi Arabia, maybe talent could learn the lines in the dialect required.

Our story sees a young daughter trying to convince her parents to take her out, but they are suffering with nasal / allergy issues.

 

WE WANT TO SEE ACTORS & NON ACTORS FOR THIS ROLES .

WE KNOW THE TALENT POOL IS LIMITED PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH ANYONE SUITABLE.

———————————————————————————————————————————–

ARABIC Mother: MUST SPEAK ARABIC

Playing age 30-45

Good personality with a natural warmth as a parent that should show through.

We need our actors to be able to show believable symptoms.

 

Daughter: ARABIC SPEAKING

PLAYING AGE 6-10 yrs

With the child it’s not a lot a script I am sure if the parent speaks arabic they could help them / we could consider a VO for the child but be better if they could manage a few words

She has a natural sweetness to her, she has personality likes to have fun and is not shy.

 

ARABIC Father: HUGE BONUS IF HE SPEAKS ARABIC, THEY MAY HAVE ONE LINE, but not yet confirmed. Could possibly use a VO. BUYOUTS TBC FOR DAD, THEY WILL BE LESS AS HIS A SECONDARY ROLE (FEATURED EXTRA).

Playing age 30-45

Good personality with a natural warmth as a parent that should show through.

 

PLEASE BE SURE TO ASK ALL ADULT ACTORS IF THEY HAVE A DAUGHTER, NIECES, FRIENDS ETC WHO COULD WORK WITH THEM FOR THIS, ALSO ANY KIDS WHO’S REAL PARENTS THAT ARE SUITABLE & WOULD BE UP FOR CASTING IS ALSO FANTASTIC. GLOBAL SUGGESTIONS WELCOME
