The BBC is asking aspiring actors to apply to take part in a new reality show that could see them win a role in a TV drama.
Bring The Drama is a new six-part series that is for those who have a passion for acting but have not been to drama school.
BBC commissioning editor Clare Mottershead said: “We’re scouring the UK to find our next acting superstars, as we put them put through their paces behind the scenes of some of Britain’s biggest and best-loved dramas.”
They will receive guidance from leaders in the field, including writers, casting directors and famous actors themselves. It also gives them the opportunity to learn more about the industry, building on their experience and skills.
At the end of the series, there will be a final showcase, enabling the participants to show off their talent. The winner will then be chosen and they will receive representation by a top agent and a part in a BBC drama.
Suzy Klein, BBC arts and classical music head of commissioning, added that the show supports British “talent that makes the UK one of the most creative places in the world”.
Closing date for entering the competition is June 4th 2023, and applicants must be over 18 years old, have not attended drama school full time or have an acting or performance degree. They must also not have an agent for acting and must be a legal UK resident.
Anyone who is keen on pursuing a career in acting could boost their chances by enrolling in drama classes for adults, learning skills like script reading, vocal projection, dramatic techniques, and performance energy.
