---- CASTING CALL: ORIGINAL DARKLY COMEDIC WEB SERIES:----
An original Edinburgh based web series about two close friends and how everything can fall apart over the course of a week.

ACTING ROLES:

CONRAD, 19-23
Tall (5”9 - 6”1), unconventionally handsome with a cheeky personality.
Occupation: Unemployed
Bio: Conrad is our protagonist. He lives at home with his mother (Cher) and is currently unemployed. He spends all of his spare time with his best friend James, getting into socially unacceptable situations and abusing easily accessible narcotics. He is intelligent but has no drive to better himself as long as James is about.
MUST be able to do a Scottish accent, as close to Edinburgh as possible.

JAMES, 19-23
Medium height (5”7 - 5”9), a stocky build with a bad attitude, quite neddy.
Occupation: Unemployed
Bio: James is Conrad’s best friend. He is a bit of a waster and often drags Conrad into any uncomfortable scenario that he can. Rough upbringing and bad attitude all amounts into James’ reckless personality and dark humour.

CHER, 38-42 (roughly)
Tall (5”8 – 5”10), beautiful but aged, kind natured, good figure.
Occupation: Pornstar

Often picking up after Conrad’s mess around the house, she is a kind-hearted woman with a conservative demeanour towards mothering. She is strong willed, intelligent and is extremely proud of the small empire she has built for herself through her adult acting career.
MUST be able to do a Scottish accent, as close to Edinburgh as possible.

MELISSA, 18-21
