Another BGT casting call, by video...

Hardly any views on this one (and the woman seems a little bit cookie) but she is actually pretty explanatory as to what Amazon are looking for, much more specific than previous ones:


There were some questions over just what the casting calls meant by "Eurasian".

The video above clarifies with a list of countries: "Southeast Asia - Thai, Vietnamese, Malaysian, Mongolian, Nepalese & Maori looks". She says, moreover, if "you are really short and little" as well as being 'Eurasian', then that would be good (????).

This immediately makes me think of the inland sea of Rhn (Easterlings, Wainriders, Balchoth) and maybe a plot involving Sauron in the East before he relocates to Mordor, or Khamul the Easterling who becomes one of the Nine Ring-wraiths.

There was also a Reddit leak a few weeks ago involving Irish actors in an audition, who were encouraged to act like "furious Celts" (really play up and emphasise their Irish accents) in a scenario whereby they had to pretend to be protecting women and children.

This video asks for Irish with red hair and freckles to "get in there quick". She adopts a phoney Irish accent and keeps it up for a while. But she actually asks for both "short" and "tall" red-heads ("all ages, shapes and sizes").

Also white hair is really emphasised and request for ethereal, androgynous people - with David Bowie used as an example.

Again, Latinos/Hispanic looks are really sought after - "lovely olive skin, mountain people, dark hair, dark eyebrows" and the countries listed are: Argentinian, Mexican, Spanish, Guatemalan. This one - I'm not sure but the new guy Maxim Baldry (even though he's of part Russian/Polish extraction) has that kind of very tanned, olive-looking skin.
