About the workshop

This is an exclusive workshop for just 16  participants.   


Small parts are vital roles in any TV programme that is being cast.  They’re often the first TV credit actors gain, and many actors audition for parts of this size throughout their careers.  But they’re surprisingly tricky roles to nail in a casting room.  It’s a different and difficult skill to get right.  This workshop with Casting Director Rick Laxton will use practical script work to explore approaches to these roles, examining what Casting Directors are looking for, and what actors can do to increase their chances of success.
