Hey Sophie, further to my emails to you late last night and this afternoon, I'm a shiny new member and would love to nab the last slot on Sunday to work on a scene from a TV pilot (Babushka) that I am currently developing.

Thx in advance,

Hi Sophie,

 

Thanks for confirming my slot. Has the number of actors needed on the day been decided yet? It's only because I have 6 characters in my 10 min script showing and wanted to see if it was ok to double up on parts?

 

Thanks,

 

Danielle
