We have the casting call, new audition dates in Ireland, along with a character description for the lead role which could become a recurring franchise role for a lucky newcomer.
-Male 5’3 (9-13)
-Open To All Ethnicities
-Needs An Irish Accent
CHARACTER BREAKDOWN: At first glance Artemis could be mistaken for a rather ordinary child with little athletic ability, but his eyes reveal a flickering of intelligence; inquisitive and possessing both academic and emotional intelligence, he is highly perceptive and good at reading people; most importantly, Artemis is warm-hearted and has a great sense of humour; he has fun in whatever situation he is in and loves life. No previous acting necessary.
Auditions (by appointment only) will take place in the following Irish cities Galway (September 29-30), Dublin (October 1st), and Cork (October 14th).
UPDATE: We a couple more character breakdowns for other major roles like Holly, Bulter, and Juliet.
CHARACTER BREAKDOWN: Captain Holly Short is a female Elf. She is talkative, sarcastic, determined and the first female officer in her reconnaissance unit – a position that comes with a lot of pressure. Unlike some of the other fairies, she has a strong moral code and becomes one of Artemis’ true friends.
CHARACTER BREAKDOWN: Butler, though dressed properly as a personal valet, is a giant of a man, with no nonsense, spine-snapping demeanor. He is Artemis’ servant, confidant, protector, and muscle.
CHARACTER BREAKDOWN: Butler’s little sister. She lives at Fowl Manor with him and Artemis. She’s somewhat clumsy but capable of incredible feats of gymnastics. She is skeptical about the whole fairy-hunting enterprise.
