    I have been acting for pretty much my entire life, but mostly in school and church plays, most recently (as a student there) i had been participating in the CUNY Brooklyn College film students’ tests films at the end of each semester to gain what little experience i could from that in terms of acting for the camera. I am doing a lot of scene study and character study on my own time, trying to teach myself to become one with the story and circumstances etc. I would be so honored to have even an extra role in this movie.

    the best way to contact me would be via email.

  2. Undercover Cop

    I’ve spent the last 8 years lying to everyone around me. I’ve been a Police Officer working undercover on and off since I first started working. I acted in high school and I loved it. I act, but not in the conventional notion. I sent in a submission on a whim.

  3. Ester Paolocci

    My name is Ester. For someone who dreams of being a surgeon, and who is fascinated by good cinema and television shows, the Knick couldn’t possibly get any better for me. The raw portrayal of the medical practice and life in the dirty city of the early 1900s makes the show intriguing and like no other. The actors in the show are flawless, and I can’t wait for season 2!!
    As for me, I do not have acting experience, but the idea of taking part in cinemas has always been on the back of my mind, and a few people have spontaneously suggested I should try out acting. I’m 5,3 in height, 120 pounds, brown hair and eyes, and am 20 years old. I’m Italian, and I usually have an outgoing personality, but can also be pensive and more reserved. Would love to be anything from a dying patient to a nurse!

  4. Awungjia Foretia

    I am currently a 22-year old actress who is currently trying to jump start her acting career in American Films. I currently viewed the trailer for “The Knick” and very interested in taking part in any role that needs to be filled whether it be small or large. I feel that I would be great to take a part in this series because it mainly focuses on a doctor who is really interested in the human body and I also have four years of medical and biological experience. I am African-American, 5″0 tall, black hair and brown eyes.
