    Turn’s cinematography is compelling. I’m a programmer, 54, ready for a change. I’ve acted in my youth, including weekly comedy skits at my high school. I have no agent, but my kids are grown and I’m on my own looking for something I want for me. If my “glorious hair” tips the balance for me for certain work, I would love that. Don’t ask me to grow my own beard. TV Series production value has risen to the top shelf in the industry, whether due to equipment affordability or cheap travel and location costs, this is awesome entertainment. Thanks to everyone involved. Seeing Micheal Gaston in S1:E3 or E4 via Netflix is what compelled me to hit pause and look for a place to comment. I love seeing the U.S. like this. It is beautiful, I am thrilled this is still in production. Thanks for this.

    The reason for not being the Daughters of the American Revolution is because I no longer live in the south. And I’m a 25 year old woman….. submission on phone, messed up complete sentences.

  9. Noelle

    I am a 25 and in love with history. Particularly the American Revolution. While I have every single piece of paper to be part of The Daughters of The American Revolution. I have a direct decedent and have done my genealogy research. Not only having direct fore bearers and having relatives die at the battle of Lexington, I am a 1st cousin 10x removed from Nathaniel Greene, who happened to he the presiding officer in Major John Andre execution. As I am sure you can tell, I am quite passionate and have always dreamed of just being in a period type film. And Colonial Williamsburg is awesome. But, I’m a sucker for Boston

  16. Samir Khalaf

    Dear to Whom It May Concern,
    My name is Samir Nicola Khalaf. I’m 28 years old from Northern Virginia and have a passion to perform. I have had the dream to act for about 5 years now. Over these past few years I have taken steps to achieve my goals. For starters I have always heard that great actors are involved in Theatre at some point in their career . I figured this would be the first step to achieving my goal. I have taken the Theatre Studies Program at Northern Virginia Community College and I must say it was a great experience. I learned so much and loved every part of it. While attending NOVA I knew my next step was to learn Improv. I then started to do some research online and kept reading about 2nd City Theatre in Chicago. I didn’t have the money to go to Chicago so I did the next best thing, join the DC Improv Comedy Club in our nations capital. I have taken several Improv courses there which I am currently still taking. As of now I’m proud to say I have been a part of 2 films. The first movie I was a background extra for “All In Time” directed by Chris Fetchko and the second I am playing a Knight in William Shakespeare’s “King Lear” directed by Alexander Barnett. Production for King Lear is currently underway.

    Why should I be a part of Turn? The answer is simple really. I am a great person to be around, full of energy, very personable, positive, reliable, and honest. I will give you 110% every day that I am there. I am a team player who will do anything that is asked of me. It does not matter if I am a background person or a person with a speaking role. Either way I would be honored to be a part of your awesome show. I have several friends who were on some episodes of Turn as well and have heard great things. I also think I would fit in well with my long hair and beard. I will take this one step at a time as I have done my whole life and that starts with this email. I hope to hear back.

  17. Char Gannon

    I am a 40 year old white male, 6’1 and 190 lbs. I would love the opportunity to be a part of this historical drama. A friend in the business advised me to try here or to check with Diane Heery (who is the casting director for most Philly area shows) to see if she knew who to contact. I figured I’d go right to the source and try here first.
    I have to say that I am a history fanatic, especially as it pertains to the revolution and it would be an honor and a privilege to be considered for a role, even as an extra.
    Thank you for your consideration

  18. Nadiri Seals

    Hi my name is Nadiri Seals,

    I would love to be apart of this production because I love acting have been performing since elementary school. I am 19 years old. I have been in acting campus for the majority of my life and can not see myself doing anything else but entertain. I have made numerous short comedy films and put them on my youtube channel. Although they are not as famous as others on youtube and no I am not one of the biggest names in youtube history but I have gotten so much positive feedback. I have a pretty athletic build for this film and plenty of charisma for any role. To be quite honest also i feel like if I am not entertaining then I do not know what I would be doing I love it and have to follow my dreams. Also I know you get messages like this all the time but not only am I talented but I am very passionate and I would love a chance.Thank You.

  20. Chris Chalton

    I have only been acting for a little while (4 months), however a lot of things have happened in such a small amount of time for me. I have been cast for a lead role in a feature film, this being the main part of my success so far. There are a few others which can be seen on my spotlight profile. I’m white British with the ability to speak in many accents including American accents.

    Of course I can not explain everything on this comment page, as I would be here for a very long time. If you would like any more information or pictures, please do not hesitate to email me.
