Characters needed at the time
Edna-A motormouth 12-year old French girl with an optimistic, yet somewhat twisted view on life. She's kind, sweet, a bit ditzy, but will hurt someone because fate allows her to. She loves all things cutesy, and has a strange ability to read people well. She's always giggling, whether she saw a baby bunny or she defeated a virus by thowing it across cyber France. She really gets on Nobody's nerves.
voice- As a cutesy little girl, her voice should match. a higher voice is desired for her, but not overly squeeky. Must be able to speak in large amounts quickly. Also, be wacky. Say these lines in the most strange ways as possible. Put emphasis on random words, or make random words have a higher or lower pitch. Do anything weird, but not too distracting, that you can. Lots of enegy!
"Ten people a year die in vending machine related accidents, so I wanted to see if I could see that happen for real!"
"No, silly! I wasn't trying to kill you, I just wanted to find out IF it would kill you."
"Awww! That's so adorable! MEOW MEOW! You try it! You try it! Meow Meow MEOW! DO it, do it!"
"Hey, did you die? No? Aww..."
Nobody-A cocky 16-year old young man who doesn't get along with anybody very well. He's a geeky, Swedish, show-offy genius who WAS enjoying a trip in France for the when all of a sudden a pair of weird cousins forced him into a ridiculous world with a crazy chick. Poor guy. He likes the idea of being a superhero, though, as he wants to be just like the hero in his favorite animated series from Japan,"Go Princess Moonlight Z". He initially dislikes Edna, but eventually feels the need to protect her. With Kimi, however, he fights like cats and dogs.
Voice- Should be played by a male with a young sounding voice (as in teenage sounding!) The occasional voice crack is optional, and would certainly add a good effect.
"What the shucks is wrong with you!? You could have KILLED me!" (utter shock)
"Oh good, you must be the one here to deliver my Princess Moonlight action figure....for...my sister." (Obvious lie)
"Wait, wait, wait wait, let me get this straight. so your coffee machine can meow... like a cat... and you somehow used it to KIDNAP ME AND TRAP ME IN THE MIDDLE OF THE OCEAN!"
"PFFT. WOW. YOU'RE mad at me, when I'm the one who just saved your whiny butt." (gloating)
Kimi Kim-A 19-year old Korean girl who has been in the alternate world for two years, and is more or less the brains and the leader of the four heroes. She's bossy and all about tradition, and her number 1 priority is to protect her cousin, Parker. She's the only person he trusts, and ever since they entered the alternate world, she feels the same. She's an excellent strategist and able to use anything as a weapon. Anything. But her physical strength is lacking. Edna confuses her, she loves her little cousin, and she hates Nobody's guts. She's also pretty racist and a hypocrite. But she's a good friend, which apparently makes up for it?
voice- should be that of a mature young lady's. She may occasionally speak in Korean, but I can teach pronounciations to the casted actress.
"Parker, how many more times can we travel between worlds? Four? That should be fine. We just have to be careful." (slightly panicked, out of breath)
"Par...ker? A word.... (whisper) are you sure these are the right people? I mean I trust you, but....*sigh*, okay I trust you." (worried)
"An Encyclopedia!? That should...be fine, actually... GAH! Read it, quickly!! (beat as Nobody reads it quietly) Out loud, you IDIOT!!!" (said loudly, they're far apart from each other)
"(gently) May I see that book? *hits Nobody's head with the encyclopedia* (loudly and agrily) YOU SHUCKING IDIOT! I SAID out lou- UGH! Who would even THINK I meant to read it to themselves?!"
The Virus- The Virus are a group of villians created in the alternate cyber world. At the time only three of the characters voices are needed-
Saber-The leader of the virus. A mysterious "teenaged boy" who appears to be roughly 15 physically. He seems to have an crush on Edna, and has a strange relationship with his second-in command.
voice- That of a young teenage boy, British accent.
"This is it! There won't be anymore fighting. You're through." (confident)
"Finally, we're going to escape here. The first we'll do? We'll take care of you. Even if I have to do it personally." (threateningly)
"Ulrich, don't talk to me like that, it's weird and annoying!" (angry and demanding)
"WHat!? You're telling me you were beaten by some little girl!? Ju- Wha- I don't even know what to say about that! And look at her! She's adorable! She- Sh- she's....adorable..." (shocked, then distracted)
A weird virus in every sense of the word. He appears to be 19. He's a crossdresser who wears a potato sack as a dress. What? He's always smiling and making Saber feel uncomfortable on purpose. He's very creepy, but he calls it unique. He's not gay, just weird. I think. He likes to weird people out on purpose. He almost seems to know something that everyone else doesn't. Maybe he's just weird.
voice- Basically, I'm looking for a male voice that sounds girlish in a nasal way. Everything he says should sound unintentionally sexy.
"It's not even funny anymore. Silly little Parker, thinking a force feild will hold me up. What? Aw, did your little feelings get hurt?"
"A suit? Aww, I wanted to enter the pageant, too!" (whining)
"What gend-!! What GENDER am I? Wow, way to hurt a guys' feelings! I could ask you the same, cutie!" (fakely offended, then flirtatious)
Lydi-a Virus who appears to be an African in her 20s. She has an obsession with music and cats, and uses sound to destroy her victims' senses. Her best friend is her tiger cat, Jellybean, who also, apparently, likes to "sing".
voice- A deeper girl's voice. Singing is a must!
"Aww, Jellybean, you can sing, too! Let's goooo!"
"Oh? You didn't like my sweet notes? Then have a taste of my death notes!"
Also, please send a file of yourself singing a minute long song with a decent vocal range.
Those are all of the characters currently up for audition. If you have any questions, please let me know.
