His Dark Materials (Television)

IOREK BYRNISON (Male, 30 – 50)

Description: Character is animated, so all this character will come across by voice:

IOREK BYRNISON is from The North, and so we are interested in genuine accents from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Greenland. Male, a bear, depth and resonance in his voice. He is troubled, angry, wronged, unflinching, but brave and loyal. Fearsome as an ally, terrifying and deadly as an enemy. Lyra (12) managed to bring him to her side of the fight, so we want him to win.

IOFUR RAKNISON (Male, 30 – 50)

Description: Character is animated, so all this character will come across by voice:

IOFUR RAKNISON is from The North, so we are interested in genuine accents from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Greenland. Male, a bear, depth and resonance in his voice. He is untrustworthy, a shyster, a politician. Tricked his way to being King of the bears even though he was not first in line for the throne (IOREK was). Instead of living as in the bear world, with bear ways, he wants to trade with, work alongside, live like, humans. He has no moral compass and will stop at nothing to get the power and status he wants.

The actors will be on set to perform with the actors in the scenes, so there is a physical and in person performance aspect to this role. The actor would be captured separately by animators on a witness cam (e.g. head cam/body cam). This informs the animators as reference for creation of a full CG character especially lip synch. ADR will also be required in post production
