NEED ACTOR TO PLAY A 25 YEAR OLD RUDOLF NUREYEV













MARGOT

Director :                OTTO BATHURST

Producer:                CELIA DUVAL

Exec Producers:     MICHELE BUCK & DAMIEN TIMMER

Writer:                    AMANDA COE

(Based on the book by Meredith Daneman)

Rehearsals:             W/C 22nd JUNE - LONDON

Filming:                  W/C 29TH JUNE – 3 WEEKS – LONDON

TV Agreement:      PACT

 

Rudolph Nureyev. A playing age of early 20’s – 25, extraordinarily sexy, vibrant and charismatic. Great physique.Athletic.  It is a substantial acting role and the artist will be required to speak English with a Russian accent . We are considering both screen actors (whom we will mostly body double the ballet sequences but teach  some dance moves ) and Professional Ballet dancers who can act. Obviously a good likeness to the real Rudi would be ideal.

 If the potential artists go on You tube there is some great material of Rudi, live interviews, really useful research.

Please send photo, resume and reel (if available) to casting@nancybishopcasting.com. I can send sides for audition which can be sent via internet.

Thanks

NB
