Audition Description

Arthur, an autistic young man obsessed with the paintings of Van Gogh, journeys home alone for the first time after visiting an exhibition of his idol's work in central London. His Mother and Father await his return, each worrying about him in their own unique ways as Arthur is easily confused, torn between their desire to see him safely home and their need to protect their son.
Powered by his favourite podcast, Arthur journeys by foot and by bus, battling his own confusion as well as the misunderstandings and prejudice of those around him. He finds support in the kindness of strangers as well as a breadcrumb trail of Van Gogh flavoured clues (one of which leaves Arthur in awe). Eventually, Arthur arrives home to his proud parents with a renewed sense of confidence and independence.

  • Role #1 - Arthur

    Accent: Northern Irish. Arthur has Autism and really struggles to cope with anything beyond his daily routine. He cannot understand the emotions of other people and also really struggles in loud, chaotic environments (being unable to ignore the noises). It\'s the confusion of it! He doesn\'t know where he stands in most social situations and when he gets confused, he gets anxious and starts to spiral. Since his mother bought him some noise-cancelling headphones to wear he has started to cope slightly better but he cannot help but feel anxious as he just knows the world outside of him is noisy.

  • Role #2 - Nadine

    Accent: Northern Irish. In her early 40s, Nadine is a doting loving mother to Arthur. She wanted more children but when Arthur started exhibiting signs of slow development in his speech when he was very young, they began to become concerned and as Arthur has grown his learning needs have meant that she and Kevin have had to put extending their family on permanent hold. She adores her son! She loves his uniqueness and the insights his perspective provides for her. She is, however, aware of his struggles and the way that others may see him (and, though she loathes to admit it, her). Letting Arthur go on this journey is probably more terrifying for her than anybody as she is so very aware of how hard life is for her son. She is relying on Kevin's stoicism and confidence to keep her steady.

  • Accent: Northern Irish. Kevin has had to be a rock in a storm for Nadine since it became clear that their son was Autistic. He has tried, as a way of coping, to be as practical as possible whilst Nadine was more emotionally available. When Arthur became frightened of/obsessed with something, Kevin rolled up his sleeves and got rid of/built whatever it was in order to make Arthur (and by extension Nadine) happy. He loves his son deeply but has had to become the person who takes the lead in the physical side of caring for him - especially as, since puberty, Arthur has become too strong for Nadine to cope with. Arthur has never lashed out, but it has always worried Kevin that he may do so. This has meant that Kevin has a more pragmatic approach to Arthur's care than Nadine - seeing him in a more mechanical sense than an emotional one. Something that bugs Kevin as it's such a bloody typical thing for a man to do. Therefore, he wants Arthur to become more independent. He wants Arthur to be able to cope on his own so Nadine and he will be able to relax, and he can begin to see his son as a person again and not as a situation that needs to be constantly managed.

  • Role #4 - Augustine

    A kindly old soul who sees a lot of her grandchildren in Arthur's innocence. She used to be a classroom assistant in a local secondary school so Arthur's behaviour is something she is used to and knows well. She hates the way people react to those with ASD, the suspicion and the fear. She doesn't really blame them, but it still ann oys her enough to want to step in.

I got a role in an up coming movie It has been a great experience being with Explore Talent. Going in for an audition competing amongst ourselves for role that best fits us leaves you with a knott in your throat when you get a call back or a response telling you that you got a role in the movie. Which makes you know that you did an excellent job at what you went in for. Of corse you go in with butterflies in your stomach and that must be the main obsticle to get through but when you do your best and give it your all nothing can come between the passion one has for acting or doing what they enjoy the most . To say that I got a role in an up coming movie that I got in through Explore Talent, with some assistance of a wonderful person of course!! The service at explore talent is excellent also. Their up to date calander and in general the system they use. Customer service... WOW!!! There is one particular person I would like to personally Thank... Francisco!! You are great !! Wonderful in the position given. I have not met anyone in any other job who has taken care of their customers like you have taken care of me , Thank you so much and GOD BLESS!!
