Casting Supporting Role


We are casting a supporting role in A Coincidental Engagement, a supernatural short written by Kal Sabir.


After years of dealing with the dead, Jack and Maddy discover their relationship is one foot in the grave.


A pivotal supporting role, we are seeking an actor to play an alternate version of the lead character of JACK (played by Kal Sabir).

We are looking for someone of similar appearance to Kal:

  • Height: minimum 6 feet or above
  • Build: medium/athletic
  • Ethnicity: South Asian, Indian, Pakistani, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern
  • Playing age is not a major issue as the actor will have make-up and some prosthetics to alter his appearance.

The character appears in one important scene involving a physical struggle – a fight director will be on hand to supervise the session.

Ideally, we would prefer someone who has stage combat experience.

There are no lines for the character, everything he does is conveyed through physical characterisation.

We must emphasise this is not a ‘stand-in’ or ‘double’ job. You will be playing a character in the story.


As the story is set outdoors and at night, filming is planned for early May to allow the weather to improve. The actor would only be required for one day (including a rehearsal).


This is a self-funded project and pay will be below Equity minimum. Travel expenses will be covered, food and drinks included on set, plus IMDB credit.


In the first instance, please complete the form below including a link to your CV (ideally Spotlight), showreel, headshots, and full body shot. Remember to include a covering letter introducing yourself.

Shortlisted actors will be asked to meet via Zoom for an audition – we need to see how you portray character through body and no words.

Looking forward to receiving your application.
