I am casting a local drama series set in present day Auckland that features a female character in her twenties (20’s) who identifies as trans female.

About the character

I am looking for a young Maori woman who can play a fully rounded character who is intense, quick-witted, and fiercely intelligent. She has a close-knit group of friends who are now her chosen family and she puts all her faith in them, never wanting to look back, as she sees her journey as resilience from painful memories. She has a strong belief in right and wrong and is not scared of calling out hypocrites and abusers of power. Sometimes her highly politicised nature lacks empathy to see both sides of a situation and this can hurt friends. And worse, make enemies of those she targets. Like all of us, she is an evolving human being who has much to give and much to learn

If you have a background in performance and/or simply feel you can relate to and could portray this character with inspiration on the TV series, we’d love to hear from you.
