Audition Description

Alice Murphy is at two different points in her life: the first, when she is a wild young thing growing up barefoot and carefree in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina; the second, when she is a well-to-do magazine editor in Asheville, 22 years later. Her story is inevitably woven with that of an idealistic young man named Billy, with whom she shares a mysterious connection. As a young teen in Zebulon, NC, Alice is hopelessly in love with small town heartthrob Jimmy Ray, the mayor’s son. Although their love was pure, it falls victim to the interference of ambitious parents, and their infant son is whisked away before their happy ending could ever begin. More than two decades later, Alice, now a successful editor of The Asheville Southern Journal, tries to discover the broken strands of her earlier life with Billy’s help.

  • Role #1 - Alice Murphy

    She is bright, aggressive, passionate, sassy, and determined. A bit of a rebel. The actress who plays her must be able to play her at 16 and at 38 with no change in makeup, and only hair up or down, glasses, and different clothes. The difference in ages is primarily conveyed through the acting. The actress has two fast costume changes and should be willing to appear in a slip for a crucial but intimate scene with her beau, Jimmy Ray.

#1 Got major roles in TWO movies 07-07-06 Well Explore Talent...you've done it again! I just came back from a screentest in Washington, D.C. Before returning home I was offered major roles in not one, but TWO movies and I am being considered for the LEAD in a third. -- Thanks Explore Talent! - Cheryl Denise #2 Been booked for a film within one week! Thank you so much Explore Talent! I have been with you for only about a week and have already been booked for a film! It is so exciting to check onto your site and find out that nearly every day I have been either given gigs for which I can submit myself or better yet, by the time I get the information, you have already submitted me! The best thing about it is that these are not just castings where you are just a barely visible extra if you are lucky. They are quality castings with real credits. Even with an agent, you often times are not going to get this level of activity right from the start. You are great, how do you do it?! Thank you and Best Regards! -- Cheryl Denise
