English Actors In Star Wars

By


This is my Star Wars Episode VII audition piece for the part of a 40 something military type, i made this following my meeting with JJ Abrams in May. I met JJ Abrams in London in May and told him about my acting and gave him my card, I also jokingly asked him if he’d cast me in Star Wars episode VII he said yeah sure, which obviously JJ was playing around as i was too and not to be taken seriously, but i did think that i could build on this and so i had the idea to create and design my own Bounty Hunter/General type costume AFTER this meeting, took me weeks to get it together and sewing, glueing, spraying and cost a fortune, (don’t tell my wife) and then i wrote a monologue whilst playing up to the official Lucasfilm casting breakdown of a 40 something military type,

i have had this filmed in the same sort of style as the “Man Of Steel” General Zod promo where he addresses the people of Earth, but in this i address the citizens of the new republic and Grand Master Skywalker and i wanted it made as if it is a hologram transmission which i had placed inside an R2 unit and sent it to Commander Abrams (JJ Abrams) well i thought that was a nice touch anyway.

so basically i was just using my initiative and thought i could do something original and proactive as Lucasfilm aren’t about to come to me, i believe you have to go out in the world and make your own luck and create your own opportunities, as nothing lands in your lap, unless you go to a lap dancing club of course, anyway so here it is, my attempt at trying to get a part or an audition for the new Star Wars trilogy.

If you don’t like what i am doing, please don’t be rude, just say nothing, but if you like what i am doing and think i could fit in to the Star Wars universe and if you have any contacts in lucasfilm or Bad Robot then if you wouldn’t mind could you please possibly pass this on and help this film get some exposure and hopefully it could reach JJ Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy. Any negativity that i may get, i always think of that famous quote “How many actors does it take to screw in a lightbulb” (answer) 100, one to to actually do it and 99 to say “I could of done that” and i am the one that did it and your the one criticising. There is another quote that i like which also sums up negative people who can only insult you “Small minds can’t comprehend big spirits, to be great you have to be willing to be mocked, hated and misunderstood, stay strong!”

I did consider doing a charity thing alongside this, which is always worthy whatever the charity, but i felt like the powers that be may feel like your trying to guilt them in to giving you a part, and as worthy as a charitable cause is, i want to get a part or an audition on my own acting merits alone as i feel like its a bit of an false thing to do especially when you have your own interests come first, so that is why i never went down that route. That’s not to say i would not help a worthy charitable cause if i ever made it in to the film, but if i did, i would do it privately and for a real reason and not to help my career as i think that is a bit false and i don’t agree with that, do it for the right reasons and not to help your career.

I have been a huge huge Star Wars fan since 1977 and knowing that 7,8 and 9 are being made and the fact i am an actor in London and they are filming over here and i fit the casting breakdown i previously mentioned then how on earth could i sit back and not try to do this, and the fact that they are filming here in London and i am a London actor and Star Wars has a reputation of using english actors and unknowns too so i just had to give it a go, and if i get mocked or criticised then so be it, but at least i am trying, if you believe in something and have a dream, it is your duty to yourself to follow that dream!!! You don’t always get what you wish for, you get what you work for!!!

  20. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
