Voice Actors Required for a 15-20 Minute Student Radio Western

Voice Actors Required for a 15-20 Minute Student Radio Western

Manchester, UK
Listed by View details

This western drama is set around the late 1800s in a fictional interpretation of the wild west. The story follows the main character; a bounty hunter called Owen Pope, on a journey of betrayal by the cunning Eileen Riley (aided by Jimmy Fredricks), and redemption alongside the older Clayton Bradley. The story contains violence and strong language and the accents are essential. The three male characters all have southern US accents and the female character has an Irish accent.

I am a student in my third year of a television and radio course and this radio drama is my final project and will be unpaid. The project is being made to be assessed, but could be aired online if it is a success.
More details on the characters and the story can be given out on request and when audition dates are set I will send out either the full or part of the script to be read in the audition.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Aiming to be recording from the 22nd March 2020 with a table read on the 21st as well. Auditions are likely to be either the 10th March or the 14th, potentially both if there are a lot of applications.

Eileen Riley - female antagonist, Irish accent

Eileen Riley has always felt she was owed the world and she has the ambition to match. She never earned an honest living, and her deceitful career peaked with the marrying and then murder of Joseph Bradley who’s full worth transferred to Eileen on his death as no one could prove she killed Joseph. Eileen has never fallen in love and feels no empathy or connection with any person she has ever met. She only ever shows real emotion when faced with wolves: the only things that scare her.
