Barefoot Casting is casting a local television drama series set in present day Auckland that features a female character in her 20s who uses a wheelchair.

About the character

I am looking for a woman who can play a fully rounded character who is fearless, loving, crass, determined, arrogant, resourceful, intelligent and loyal. She also has a searching, free, K-Road kinda-vibe that sometimes spirals into self-destructive behaviour. She’s only human. Her favourite band is Wet Leg, her favourite food is foraged and her star sign is WTF. Sexual status – fluid and no-one’s business.

If you have a background in performance and/or simply feel you can relate to and could portray this character amazingly in the TV series, we look forward to hearing from you!

Location & dates

Your application to audition must be in by Friday 23 December.

You must be available for an audition – and for successful applicants – a callback some time in DECEMBER 2022 or JANUARY 2023.

For the purposes of filming you must live in the Greater Auckland area.

If successfully cast, you must be available for rehearsals and shooting dates across FEBRUARY / MARCH / APRIL 2023
