The casting process involves a series of auditions in front of a casting panel, composed of individuals such as the producer, director and casting director. When trying to find the right actor I create a list of criteria that each actor will need to deliver for the character they are being cast for. There are four actors I will need in my project and two extras I will list each character and the criteria I need for each actor to fill.
Edward Collins – This is the main character in the opening, there is no dialogue for this character so the actor doesn’t need good dialogue skills however will still need to learn the character and practice on expressions and portray them as distressed. The actor needs to look the part, good build, powerful and able to run with heavy equipment.
John Weaver – I am looking for a good actor that can delivery lines powerfully yet a hint of sensitivity. The actor needs a 1940s English accent. Normal build.
William Carter – Good actor, normal build
German Soldier – Has to have a evil look, tall and good build.
