Project Main Details

A Song for the Whales 
My name is Lorenzo Fresta, and I'm currently enrolled in the character animation program at CalArts.
I just started the production of a short animated film called "A Song for the Whales" and I'm looking for voice actors for the main characters, a 9 years old girl and a 17 years old boy.
The story takes place in a cold, far kingdom of the north. The old King just died and his son, Aidan (17 years old), must take his place. In order to prove to be worthy of the title of King, traditions require Aidan to undergo an initiation rite. While the young boy faces the expectations of his people and the memory of his father, Eileen (his young sister, 9 years old), tries to stop him from fulfilling this terrible duty.

- EILEEN is young, insecure, fragile, but able to find en enormous strength when it comes to protect the person she loves most in the world, her brother.
- AIDAN, for his entire life, has been prepared to be his father's successor. But beyond his crown and his authoritarian attitude, he hides a sensitive nature, unsuited to the atrocities needed to be a king. Nonetheless, he does what he has to do because of others' expectations.

There will be just a few short lines in the script, and some breathing and crying sounds to perform. The lines are short, but I'm looking for someone who can really communicate the character's emotions in a few words.
Even if not required, a SCOTTISH ACCENT would be preferred!

Thank you for your attention.

AIDAN is about to leave the town for his initiation rite, and EILEEN tries to stop him, worried that, following his people's expectations, he might end up losing who he is.
(just read the lines for the role you're applying for)

EILEEN (yelling): "Brother, please! Stop! You don't have to do it!"

AIDAN (whispering to himself): "Eileen... go away..."

EILEEN (yelling and crying, loud): "Listen to me... Aidan!"

AIDAN (angry, annoyed): "EILEEN, ENOUGH!"
