Sold Out Join Waiting List
3 hours / £24.00

Date: October 1st
Location: Zoom Meeting
Time: 18.00 - 21.00

In this online workshop, Rick Laxton CDG, former Head of Casting at Lime Pictures will give you the opportunity to focus on smaller roles in TV drama. It will take a look at how to approach such roles and what can help you in the casting process for them. This will be a Zoom workshop.
 
Small parts are vital roles in any TV programme that is being cast.  They’re often the first TV credit actors gain, and many actors audition for parts of this size throughout their careers.  But they’re surprisingly tricky roles to nail in a casting room.  It’s a different and difficult skill to get right.  This workshop with Casting Director Rick Laxton will use practical script work to explore approaches to these roles, examining what Casting Directors are looking for, and what actors can do to increase their chances of success.
 
As sides for ongoing drama are often given on arrival, scripts for this session will be sent out the day before the class.

Rick Laxton is a freelance Casting Director and member of the CDG.  He has cast over 800 hours of TV content for major broadcasters such as BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Amazon Prime, Disney, History and Nickelodeon.  Before going freelance, Rick was Head of Casting at Lime Pictures from 2010 to 2015, a position he took after working in the ITV Casting Department for 7 years.  Rick's TV credits include Comedy (incl. Peter Kay’s Car Share, Scarborough), Soap (Hollyoaks, Coronation Street), Drama (incl. The Case, The Road to Coronation Street) and Children’s Drama (incl. The Evermoor Chronicles, Rocket’s Island).
