Shaheen Baig Casting has put out a call on social media for a new upcoming drama on the BBC. The agency is looking for ‘confident, charismatic, ambitious and witty people’ for a drama set in the North of England.

The 2006 film ‘This Is England’ which The story centres on young skinheads in England in 1983, gave the chance for a lot of young actors to start their careers in the industry and now this could be your big break.

They are lloking for men & women between the ages of 25-45 years old of all ethnicities. Crucially, the people right for the part will have a natural Northern accent, ideally Yorkshire. The call is for ‘first time non professional actors’, so this could be the big break you didn’t know you were looking for.
