Deanna Brigidi (Let It Snow, Everything’s Gonna Be Okay) has launched a nation-wide talent search for a series regular role on the upcoming HBO Max series Vegas High. Vegas High is a 90’s coming-of-age story about a girl caught between two worlds – the fast-paced lifestyle of Las Vegas and her strong Mormon faith and community.
Casting is seeking one Latinx 18-year old or older female actor (to play 14-15 years old, half Latinx and half Caucasian) for the series regular role Laura Hernandez. Hernandez is a sweet, poetic soul with a unique comedic voice. A devout Mormon living in Las Vegas with her blended family while attending Vegas High, Laura desperately wants to act more adult than she is. She thinks of herself as a mix of Felicity, Angela Chase and the characters of Jane Austen’s novels – she’s a total romantic who processes the crazed Vegas culture through her poetic lens. Laura finds herself attracted and yet repelled by the world in which she lives. For most of her life, she’s strived for perfection, completely fulfilled by her strong morals and beliefs but as she ventures out into the sex-obsessed world of her teenage peers, Laura can either remain aloof or yield to the desires that are stirring within her. Searching for uniqueness. Prototype: Elsie Fisher in Eighth Grade…SERIES REGULAR.
