Casting is looking for Richmond, Virginia and surrounding area residents of all ages and ethnicities. The open calls will be focused on finding people with interesting, expressive faces that naturally fit into the pre-Civil War time period.

Casting is specifically seeking:

  • African American men and women to play Philadelphia society, plantation slaves and abolitionists
  • African American girls ages 4-10
  • Caucasian men and women to play plantation owners, farmers and politicians
  • Two sets of Caucasian (fraternal or identical) twin boys ages 10-12 and age 18 to play 16
  • Stand-ins and photo doubles

The open casting call will consist of a brief talk with a member of the casting team and a photograph. No appointment is necessary, but a positive attitude and the ability to quietly wait are good traits to put to use when attending an open casting call. Acting experience is not necessary and if selected, compensation will be on the scale of other professional productions.

We invite everyone to pre-register to help expedite the open call process: www.carolgrantcasting.com/harriet2.html. Pre-registration is not mandatory but strongly encouraged. For more information and details, please call the Carol Grant Casting hotline: (323) 419-0202.

If you are unable to attend either open call please go ahead and pre-register, but check the box stating that you are unable to attend. Please know those who are able to attend in person will be in best consideration.

The feature film Harriet will be directed by Kasi Lemmons (Eve’s Bayou, Talk to Me) and is set to star Cynthia Erivo (The Color Purple) and Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton). Joe Alwyn, Jennifer Nettles, and Clarke Peters also round out the cast. The film tells the story of Harriet Tubman, who helped free hundreds of slaves from the South after escaping from slavery herself in 1849. Filming will commence on October 8, 2018 in Richmond, VA and the surrounding area.

SAG-AFTRA members in good standing should bring their membership cards to enter a separate SAG-AFTRA line.

If you are not interested in background work but are interested in a speaking role, please submit according to the following instructions: http://arvold.com/casting-call/feature-film-harriet/
