Frank

Treated as the primary protagonist, Frank is a young, widowed father with a 13 year old child to look after.

Gabriel

A psychiatrist and strong ally to Frank after his wife's death and even more determined to rid him of the pain of his daughters death. The walls slowly closing in on Frank, Gabriel finds himself back in a place he hoped he would never see again, one that no one (especially Frank) should ever see.

Male, aged 35 to 55

Apply now

Daisy

A short appearance in the episode, Daisy is a child that finds herself becoming the matriarch of the house, having to watch her father slowly drift into a childish state after the death of her mother. Swiftly maturing and recovering from the experience, she stands as her fathers rock. This is all snuffed out before the opening title crawl as she is killed in a drive-by, organised by Antigone. She reappears in a later dream sequence, throttling the father, blaming himself for her death

Female, aged 13 to 16

Apply now

Hitman

Extra: The Hitman is only seen once and for the final time, as a scarred and sinister character approaches him, a container of acid in his hand and a large grin on his face, his eyes burning purple in the swinging, over-head light. The Hit-man shows no remorse, a cocky and arrogant thug, not aware he has met the closest thing to a 'real' monster.

Male, aged 18 to 30

Apply now

Bartender

Extra: a brief appearance but one that offers the viewer a very short moment out of the bleakness of the episode and reminds them that there are still good, empathetic people in the world. He tries to cheer up Frank and is concerned about his mental state. A rare, likable guy in the midst of Antigones sinister plans.

Male, aged 18 to 26

Apply now

Locals (x5)

Extras: A VERY brief scene requires a cluster of locals to surround Daisy after her death. This will take place outside and key regulations will be present throughout.

Anyone, aged 18 to 67

Apply now

Police Inspector

Extra: The investigation into who killed Daisy has been underway for some time but something seems... off. The police have suddenly stopped and a lot of 'leads' have suddenly vanished. Only one officer is taking it seriously but his behavior in the meeting has brought a trembling lip of fear...

Anyone, aged 24 to 35

Apply now

Private detective

Extra: A private firm has offered assistance to a troubled father after her daughter is gunned down in the streets, and the investigation is shutting down. Something has to be done but then they get a strange visitor... and the allocated detective is fired, with no replacement.
