The Hardacres is a 6 x 1 Hour TV series for Channel 5, produced by Playground Entertainment. Producer Alex Jones, Director Rachel Carey, Casting Director Beverley Keogh & Casting Associate Sheraz Ahmed.
Set in Yorkshire, 1891, The Hardacres is a rags to riches family saga that follows the lives, loves and fortunes of the Hardacre family - from stinking fish docks to sprawling country estate. It’s about family and community. Fitting in and standing out. The British obsession with class. And staying true to you and yours in a world that doesn’t always share your values. A gutsy, ensemble, family show full of heart, The Hardacres places an ordinary family in an extraordinary position and explores some age old questions - can money buy true happiness? Can we ever really change? Is “bettering oneself” always actually.... better?
Harry Hardacre - This character will feature in 4 out of 6 Eps in Series 1 and may require options.
Age: 15 - 21
Bio: Bright, witty and determined, Harry is the youngest of the Hardacre children. Harry was born with a physical disability (actor must have physical disability) that set him apart from the other boys of the village. While they were playing football and climbing trees, Harry was often left out. To cope with being different, Harry developed a penchant for clever remarks, much to the annoyance of his older brother, Joe. Among his family members, Harry shares a special bond with with his father, Sam. However there is a blind spot in their relationship. In an effort not to single Harry out, Sam has consciously behaved as if his disability didn't exist. Sam's well-meaning but misguided approach has inadvertently prevented Harry from acknowledging his own disability and consequently driven Harry to prove himself capable in every way. This self-imposed pressure Harry has placed on himself weighs heavily on him, unbeknownst to his dad. Mid-way through the series, Harry will happily depart for Barlows, a prestigious boarding school. However, upon his return, he will be a changed young man. His experience at Barlows shattering his once-cherished dream of receiving a gentleman's education. In Series Two Harry will be assigned a tutor named, Master Walters, who will guide him towards a path where he can be more authentic to himself. In the process, Harry will catch feelings. Harry’s burgeoning homosexuality will be the source of a private shame and will drive a wedge between him and his father that Sam cannot understand.
