Actor in mid-forties required for the character of "Roy Fiddle" in the upcoming short film "Doubts and Fantasies" made by award winning production company Gatton Films.

Doubts and fantasies. They are the universally human products of imagination, creativity, uncertainty, fear.

Our short film of the same name is set against the cosmopolitan backdrop of London, it encapsulates the intense highs and lows that come from living in one of the most vibrant and challenging cities in the world. The structure emulates the intertwined and contrary elements of emotionally charged moments that connect us all in our day to day lives and especially in our varying relationships with each other.

The story’s dramatic underpinning is a chain of events that comes full circle at the conclusion of the film.

Six scenes. Six characters, with only two characters per scene. All characters are navigating their ups and downs – their doubts and fantasies - giving the tone of the story a high-pitched intensity.

Roy Fiddle

Roy is an MP, 40s, who sympathetically scolds his policy advisor, LARA, for her telling the Minister when he’s wrong — mainly from the bother as the complaint comes back to him. Roy plays both sides of the political coin, depending on the immediate audience. He’s condescending, passively manipulative, and strangely comedic. Later on, he pathetically tries to get the attention of ISABEL, used to the distraction from this young woman as his significant other outside of his marriage and kids.

Male, aged 40 to 60

  • Ethnicity: White / Caucasian
