Hollyoaks: Desperately Seeking India

Here’s a project that I worked on a couple of years ago – ‘Hollyoaks: Desperately Seeking India’.

We were introducing a new student character to the show in 2009, ‘India Longford’. For the first time, the casting process was opened up to allow aspiring actors to submit online auditions, and the top 25 invited to the set to read in person.



I took a day out of storylines to direct/shoot interviews and links with Ricky Whittle and the 25 potential “Indias”.

    I’ve got a friend who is an aspiring actress and she’s really good but does not have an agent. Do you think Hollyoaks will ever do something like this again? I think she’d be perfect to play a role on the show and I know it’s her dream to do so.
    Many thanks.
