Aspiring actors get a chance to try out for the part of Sinbad
Kristina Lund Hansen
It’s time to dust off your scimitar and ‘Aladdin shoes’ because Dubai-based casting agents are still searching the seas for aspiring UAE actors to audition for the role as the world’s most famous sailor in new adventure drama. The 13-part big-budget television series will be shot for British channel SKY TV with a plot dealing with the action-packed life of legendary Basra-born hero, Sinbad.
The TV firm already announced the casting last month, but the deadline for submitting a self-taped audition has been extended until March 23. The producers are on the look-out for a 21 year-old male with Middle Eastern/Arabic features, a passion for swimming and fighting, and naturally, he should be very fit and a real head turner. If this sounds appealing to any of you heartthrobs out there then it might time to unbutton the shirt and show off that six-pack.
