New serial drama seeks Japanese and foreign actors. The auditions will consist of two cold readings; you do not need to prepare a monologue. Headshots and resumes are appreciated, but not necessary. In addition to the roles listed below, we need people of all backgrounds and ages for smaller parts and as extras.

Production is planned for weekends from mid-February through mid-April. Not all characters will be required for all shooting days.

Actress “Yoko”
Age: 20s-30s
Nationality: Japanese
Language: Japanese or bilingual E/J
“Yoko” is a stunningly beautiful actress with lots of talent, however, she’s also a kind, sincere, humble person. Although she knows she is beautiful and is confident in her acting ability, she is very shy off-camera, and a bit insecure and awkward when interacting in the “real world.” She is genuinely a kind-hearted person who is torn between following her acting career and pleasing her parents.

Actress “Tomoko”
Age: 20s-30s
Nationality: Japanese
Language: Bilingual E/J
“Tomoko” is a beautiful and feisty actress who hasn’t achieved the success she wants. She’s known as a busybody who knows everyone’s business and gossips behind everyone’s back—therefore, she’s a troublemaker.

Actress “Junko”
Age: 20s-30s
Nationality: Japanese
Language: Japanese or bilingual
“Junko” is a quiet, insecure, and introverted young woman who works behind the scenes. She is sort of plain and the outgoing actors and actresses forget to invite her along to social events. Junko speaks but she has emotional depth. She’s quick to try to please, but her eyes reveal sadness.

Actress “Miki”
Age: 20s-30s
Nationality: Japanese
Language: Japanese or bilingual
“Miki” is a young actress who is always late for rehearsals and meetings. Although she is a fine actress, she is a prima dona who reacts badly to criticism.

Actress “Anna”
Age: 20s-30s
Nationality: European or British
Language: English or bilingual
“Anna” is a photographer who has been in Japan for just a few months. She has an outgoing personality and is trying hard to make friends and get her career going.

Actor “Sean”
Age: 20s-30s
Nationality: UK, Australian, or NZ
Language: English or bilingual
“Sean” is a comic artist and English teacher. He is the comic relief in the show, (ala Kramer), offering wisdom in a friendly manner.

I notice Americans aren’t welcome in your production. I am thouroughly offended, upset, outraged, etc.
