Virtual Casting Review
This looks like fun...
Screen name: King_Erlian
Picture: http://i1279.photobucket.com/albums/y52 ... G_1046.jpg
This picture was taken during a ranch holiday in Colorado last year.
49 year old male, 5' 8", 210 lbs.
Acting history: 27 years so far (since age 22) of appearing in local amateur dramatic and operatic productions, mostly Gilbert & Sullivan operas, sometimes in the chorus and sometimes as a baritone lead.
Skills: Singing, blacksmithing (ornamental ironwork, not shoeing horses), not too bad at horseriding. British accent a foregone conclusion since I am British. Bit of choreographed sword-fighting. Other skills probably not relevant to Narnia (do they have bass guitars in Narnia?).
Which Movie: The Horse And His Boy
Part: King Lune; could also do the Tisroc but he'd only be on screen for about five minutes.
King_Erlian, you'd be great as the Tisroc!
King Erlian you look like you can portray the king of your own username. All hail King Tirian's father
Long Live King Caspian & Queen Liliandil Forever!
Jill+Tirian! Let there be Jilrian!
Ahhh this is the neatest thread I've come across so far! And I'm so glad it's not locked either, since most of the threads that haven't been posted on in a few years seem to be locked. I've always secretly loved the idea of being told which character I could play, just for fun. I'm an actor so I'm used to boxing myself into a 'type' for screen work (which hasn't yet included big movies like the Narnia ones ). Hopefully we can pick this thread back up? I have to admit, I had a bit too much fun with this.
Picture/Description: Hopefully it's alright to post my actual headshot here?

Acting History: Aside from bit, non-speaking roles in a couple short films (and bit roles in a few different children's and school theatre shows from years past), I played Alais Capet in 'The Lion in Winter' (stage play) a few months ago, and just recently wrapped another stage production of 'Takin' Over the Asylum', where I played Aileen. I wrote about both shows, more in-depth, on this thread: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=424&start=240
Skills: Archery, Swimming, Australian standard dialect, English standard dialect (RP), Irish dialect, Scottish dialect, Musical Theatre
Which Movie You Would Like to Play In: I suppose any of the remaining ones, depending if the screenwriter/director/producers change the characters' ages so that they're a bit older, as opposed to still being young kids. Aside from that, maybe 'The Horse and His Boy' (though that'd be more for if the Pevensies are written in the script to have larger roles than what was in the book)?
Part(s) You Are Applying For: Jill Pole, Polly Plummer (if ages are altered so the characters are a bit older), adult Lucy Pevensie [in HHB].
Being an actor means exploring the human psyche, often in its most raw form. It's terrifying at times, but so incredibly liberating. And then there's, you know, the less deep stuff, like getting an agent and going on audition after audition.
Description: I am about 5'10", weigh close to 200 pounds, and have short, dark blond hair. I have green eyes and dark eyebrows. My arms and chest are muscular... wish I could say the same for the rest of me Clean-shaven at present. I am 20 years old, but I've been guessed as young as 12 before, so I guess my range of possible parts is somewhat broad. I have a moderately deep voice. And a DEEP voice in the morning!
Acting history: None professionally. Done some comedic videos with my siblings, acted in a church play (as a British kid, so that gives me some experience with the accent.)
Skills: Sweating, fake-crying, cape-fluttering, hair-tossing, sword-brandishing, glaring, screaming, singing, a little archery (with compound bows). Mediocre British accents (both cockney and Oxford/Received Pronunciation.) I play various flute instruments, which puts me in mind of a certain Narnia character...
Which Movie: Uh... LWW, PC, VDT, SC, HHB, MN, LB. Any of those.
Which Parts: Mr. Tumnus, Prince Rilian maybe? Also the voice of Maugrim, Trufflehunter, or the Wer-Wolf. Maybe the Older Brother that Corin knocks down? There, that's more realistic.
(I'm not actually serious about this, if you couldn't already tell. Just having fun. I'm not a real actor. But I can dream!)

For Narnia! And for Aslan!
