Ferguson Films is on a search for four actors to portray the roles of Brutus' sons on The Queen.

Their names: Cebo’elihle, Mlungisi, Nkosiyabo and Nqobizitha.

The show's looking for four versatile, talented actors who can bring them to life and open auditions are happening as we speak.

According to the show's casting director Sedii Matsunyane-Ferguson, each of them are unique in personality and temperament so it's important to really capture their individuality in your audition.

They're Xhosa characters but they're also fluent in KZN Zulu so auditionees must be proficient in Zulu. This is also very important.

How to audition

You'll find audition scripts and bios for each character here >> The Queen audition scripts

Study the character biographies closely because they include each characters' age and info about their personalities (we've included them below).

Choose the character most suited to you and then prepare, perform and record your audition using the scripts provided.

Send your audition to the production on this address:

Application closing date: 22 January 2022

Tips on taping your audition

Here are some insights from Sedii on how to create your audition tape:

The characters

A blow-by-blow of each character:

Cebo’elihle Khoza
Male, early 20s
Archetype: The peacemaker

In a chaotic house filled with boys who are constantly bickering with each other, he’s always been the calm amidst the storm.

He’s a man of reason, unwilling to let himself be ruled by emotion. Cebo’elihle doesn’t always speak much but when he does, he imparts the kind of wisdom that is beyond his years.

More than anything, Cebo is an advocate for peace.

Mlungisi Khoza
Male, late 20s
Archetype: The Rebel

Mlungisi is the self-proclaimed fixer. He’s a fighter and is convinced that he has the solutions to every problem but it usually involves fists and a gun.

He’s trigger happy and always itching for a fight. He’s unremarkable as a person, the average guy who’s always been overlooked. No one sees him and so he’s constantly fighting for attention.

Nkosiyabo Khoza
Male, 21
Archetype: The Heir

Nkosiyabo is the last born. He’s always had things easy and has always been a little too spoiled. Especially by his father. The apple of his eye. Nkosi loves nice things.

He’s the young cheese boy who women seem to be drawn to. He’s flashy, loves to party and never wants to work hard for much in his life.

Nkosi overestimates himself and is constantly getting himself into trouble.

Nqobizitha Khoza
Male, mid 30s
Archetype: The Black Sheep

Nqobizitha is the eldest of Brutus’ sons. The black sheep of the family who’s always misunderstood.

Nqobi is defensive, entitled and feels robbed of his place as the head of the family.

Nqobi unconsciously dresses just like his father, wearing Brutus’ signature Brentwood trousers. They have the same manner of speech.

Break a leg!
