Looking for an actor who can balance being strong and commanding but delicate and troubled, with a knack for delivering fast-paced witty dialogue. Although the piece has a comedic element we’re looking for very down-played and natural performances.

One day shoot in August

£100 plus expenses

Destiny
Late 20’s/early 30’s
Any ethnicity.
Claims to be a contract killer, well spoken, extremely mysterious, commanding presence but has the eyes of someone who has been through hell and back.

Audition Sides:

ALEC
So what do we do now?
DESTINY
Could I have my wine please?
ALEC
Of course.
DESTINY
Sit. Cheers.
Mmm, this is good. Where’s it from?
ALEC
Wine shop.
DESTINY
No, I mean what country?
ALEC
I don’t know, I just go to the wine shop, I tell them how much I wanna spend on a bottle of wine and they recommend some wine bottles to me.
DESTINY
It’s delicious. You not drinking yours?
ALEC
It’s kind of hard enjoy with your gun pointed at my face.
DESTINY
Oh, sorry.
Bottoms up. Good right?
ALEC
Delicious.
DESTINY
You really should have savored that.
ALEC
Because good wine shouldn’t go to waste?
DESTINY
That, as well as the fact that it may be the last glass of wine you ever drink Alec.
ALEC
Because I’m giving up alcohol?
DESTINY
Did you know the Ancient Kings of Egypt didn’t drink wine because they thought it was the blood of those who battled the gods and that’s why when you drank wine you lost your senses for a little while?
ALEC
No, I did not know that. Is that true?
DESTINY
It is. It makes you wonder. Maybe they were on to something.
Close your eyes. It wont hurt. I promise.
ALEC
What?
DESTINY
It’s okay. If you die, if being the magic word, I’ll make it look like a suicide. Come on. Close your eyes.
End
