Tim is played by Peter Jensen. In his audition, Peter pulled out an actual printed photo of a donkey when the script called for his character to do so. That's not the reason we cast him, of course, but it definitely made him stand out more than he already had. There's a certain whimsical sadness to Tim. Peter is a much more outgoing and assertive person, but he transforms on screen. We're excited to work with him and fully bring Tim to life. Watch what Peter has to say about his character and the film.
More about Tim:
Tim’s quiet, thoughtful, and lately has been feeling pretty empty. After spotting a similarly sad looking donkey at a roadside market, he decides to take her home and make her part of the family.
