SPADE - CASTING
Below you will find the scripts, production info and character breakdowns for the roles we are currently casting for. I plan on casting each episode individually and in series order, so if you've got your eye on a role for a later episode that is currently not advertised, please check back or keep an eye out on our social media pages for more info. I am also unable to reply to each application / message individually, so please bare with me.
NOTE: If you would like to apply for a role, click here or press the apply button in the character breakdown - please do not contact me directly. Casting could last a few weeks, even a month or two, so please be patient with the outcome. I will endeavour to let you know either way, but the process does take quite some time. Please link me to an online copy of your showreel, not a download.
Thanks! - Daniel
