"Convincing Icelandic Required..."

* Bookmark and Share

A few days ago I submitted for a short film, with this character description:

FEMALE (EARLY 30s)- A woman of Skandinavian (blond and blue eyes) appearance. She is determined but polite, open to new experiences but on her terms. She is as pleasant and elegant as the American image of a nordic woman, but upon knowing her better, she diverts in surprising ways from the more gentle facade. Convincing Icelandic accent required.

I just received an email from the casting director asking me to come in for an audition on Sunday (yay!) My boyfriend’s mother is Norwegian (as is the rest of her family) and I have visited Norway, so I think I can bring some of what I have learned into the audition room. But I am going to spend a little bit of time on the International Dialects of English website to see if I can get some hints and tips from native speakers (though they don’t have Iceland or Norway up there, so I think I will have to be satisfied with Denmark and Finland.)

What fun!
