I am writing to see if you might know of any budding thespians in Delhi who might be interested in doing a days acting for the BBC. We've got an awesome opportunity coming up for a documentary being made in Delhi by the BBC. If you wouldn't mind just spreading the word about this, we would greatly appreciate it.
The film is called THE LAST VICEROY, it's a docu-drama set in India on the eve of Independence. It looks at the Partition of the subcontinent into INDIA and PAKISTAN through the eyes of the last British Viceroy in India: Lord Mountbatten.
The film is being directed by CARL HINDMARCH and being produced by the for Channel 4.
We are looking to cast the supporting cast from India. And essentially need
foreigners who can pass off as being British. There is also an American role.
Here's what we need in terms of Featured Extras:
1. CHARLES SMITH- He's a British Manservant. Age 55-70. Non-Speaking Part,
has to be physically presentable and must be able to act out a detailed
scene where he adorns Lord Mountbatten for his swearing in ceremony with his
uniform, badges, hat etc.

The actors will be very well styled with period costumes and make-up. They will only be required for one day of filming, either on the 2nd or 3rd of December, at a location just out of Delhi (1hr drive).
If you guys do know of anyone who may be interested in this opportunity, kindly get them to email us here at FRECKLES - The expat Talent Agency. I have also attached a FRECKLES application form which needs to be filled out and emailed back to us along with photograph, so we can update our database. We actually have many opportunities throughout the year for foreigners to take part in films, advertisements and events - doing things like extra work, voice-overs, modelling, M.C.-ing and promotional work. If you know of anyone at all who'd be interested in going onto our database, please spread the word. It's a great way to meet people and make a bit of extra money.
Thanks for your time!
