    CASTING:

    DR. ROSE VEGA – SERIES LEAD – FEMALE – 24-29 YRS OLD – CAUCASIAN/LATINA
    Rose works out religiously, studies tirelessly, and has made it her personal quest to live with as much positivity in her heart as she can muster. She’s got a natural sense of gallows humour, which sometimes escapes unfiltered, but, ultimately, she only wants to heal the sick. When she learns she can understand demonic languages, then speak them herself, her entire life is thrown off-course.

    DR. LAYLA KAPLAN – SERIES LEAD – FEMALE – 24-29 YRS OLD – ANY RACE
    BFF to Rose, Layla grew up with three older brothers on the wrong side of the tracks, so she can swear and fight with the best of them. She has boundless energy, is street smart, confident and brutally honest. She’s a problem solver, but is not great in personal crisis situations. She has a healthy sexual appetite and a magnetism that attracts all sorts of women – good and bad. Hint: She likes the bad ones best.

    DR. ABIGAIL FULERTON – SERIES LEAD – FEMALE – 39-46 YRS OLD – CAUCASIAN
    A powerful clairvoyant, Abigail walks with measured steps and a presence that demands the world walk in lock-step with her. She is always listening, keeping an open frequency to another realm and is therefore often both distracted and ultra-focused at the same time. Having been shamed in the past for her sexuality, she keeps her romantic feelings hidden deep, and it will take someone extremely special to draw them out. That person is Layla.

    DR. LINDSAY “GRIFF” GRIFFIN – SERIES REGULAR – MALE – 30-38 YRS OLD – CAUCASIAN/IRISH
    Griff has the power of Death Warning (the vision of a living person prior to their death) and is a Medium. Watching his best friend die when he was ten fucked him up well and good, not to mention the time he spent in a psychiatric ward until his late teens. He’s jocular, gregarious and sexually obvious, but he’ll fight to the death for a true friend. He’s also honest and doesn’t care what others think. This actor may speak with a Scottish, British, Australian…any commonwealth accent…please specify

    ASHWANI “ASH” JAKHAR & RAVINDER “RAVI” JAKHAR – SERIES REGULAR – MALE – 25-34 YRS OLD – PAKISTANI/MIDDLE EASTERN
    Police Officer Ash is a strong, beautiful, charming man with soft eyes and a slight accent that betrays his British/Pakistani upbringing. His posture can sometimes betray his fears, not of anything in the outside world, but of what’s inside him. Because there’s two of him. There’s Ash, the warm man who sees justice as grey and then there’s Ravi who sees justice as black and white. Ravi is Ash’s twin who died in the womb and became a part of Ash. The two can separate into two people (bilocation), but two different people you could not find.

    DR. ELIJAH CUTTER – SERIES REGULAR – MALE – 40-49 YRS OLD – CAUCASIAN
    A psychiatrist, exorcist and former preacher, Cutter’s expression is as dark as his thoughts, and he is somewhat hunched, like a beast who is not to be disturbed. When he talks, it’s guttural and seems to come from an underworld of his own existence. He’s a fair man, but doesn’t blink if others aren’t. Years ago he lost his wife and child to demonic forces, and although he still believes in the Lord, Our God, he blames Him and hates Him with every ounce of his being.

    YOON HYE-SUN “RAINE” – SERIES REGULAR – FEMALE – 15-21 YRS OLD – ASIAN/KOREAN
    Raine can alter your memories. Her job is to make patients forget the strange things they see in Bedlam. She is a beautiful but awkward young woman who is an old soul, having not-so-vicariously lived through the emotions of others. Though she can be remarkably serene and almost ethereal, with the skills of someone thrice her age, she is still a teenager at heart – arrogant, curious, insecure and horny.

    BROGHAN CADE – SERIES REGULAR – MALE – 35-39 YRS OLD – ANY RACE
    Hippie turned lumbersexual, Bedlam’s resident witch and apothecarist is a hulk of a man who perpetually looks as though he walked out of the woods after building a log cabin with his bare hands. He gets along with most people and has a warmth and confidence that draws people to him. He’s an avid gardener and steam punk geek who is falling deeply in love with Ravi.

    TODD SINGER – GUEST STAR – MALE – 20-25 YRS OLD – ANY RACE
    Highly dedicated, Todd is Blair’s Executive Assistant (EA). His needs and safety always come second to Blair’s. Todd gets locked into the trunk of Blair’s car while the Ijiraq shapeshifts as him. He finally gets released by Blair’s neighbor, Emmett.

    DR. DAVINA BRYANT – GUEST STAR/RECURRING ROLE – FEMALE – 34-41 YRS OLD – ANY RACE
    Half-way through med school, Davina realized she didn’t want to be a doctor, but she’d already put in the money and time so here she is. A serious lacrosse player for most of her life, she talks and acts like a team coach. She’s competitive, tough and lacks a sense of humour.

    DR. CHARLES BISHOP – RECURRING ROLE – MALE – 48-58 YRS OLD – CAUCASIAN
    A veteran doctor who created Bishop’s General (and Bedlam) in the 1880s with Abigail and Emma. All polish and poise, born with the gift of persuasion. A megalomaniac, he is the perfect cult leader. Stopped aging at 50 after making a deal with a death demon. Life quest? Immortality.

    JOSH – RECURRING ROLE – MALE – 15-21 YRS OLD – ANY RACE
    Outcast demon/skater boy who longs for belonging. What he lacks in demonic chutzpah he makes up for in nerdy exuberance and an open heart. Jay Baruchel meets Dobbie from Harry Potter.

    NARRATOR – LARGE PRINCIPAL ROLE – MALE OR FEMALE – 20-28 YRS OLD – ANY RACE
    Will read all stage direction in this fast paced supernatural drama.
