Want to appear in a Star Wars film? Here’s your chance! Open auditions are going to be held in the UK for Star Wars: Episode VII.
The Twitter account @UKopencall posted a casting call for a “major Hollywood movie” and announced a
“nationwide search for lead roles for a Disney movie”.
For auditioning, you must be over the age of 16 for the female role, and over 18 for the male role.
The roles the auditions are for:
RACHEL – Was quite young when she lost her parents. With no other family, she was forced to make her way in a tough, dangerous town. Now 17, she has become street smart and strong. She is able to take care of herself using humor and guts to get by.
Always a survivor, never a victim, she remains hopeful that she can move away from this harsh existence to a better life. She is always thinking of what she can do to move ahead.
THOMAS – Has grown up without a fathers influence. Without the model of being a man, he doesn’t have the strongest sense of himself, despite this he is smart, capable and shows courage when it is needed.
He can appreciate the absurdities in life and understands you can’t take life too seriously.
Bristol will be the first port of call for the auditions on the 9th November, followed by London, Dublin and Glasgow.
It’s unknown for the moment, whether these are ‘lead’ roles or not. Whatever the case may be, you may have your chance to be in a Star Wars movie!
You may or may not know this, but the actor who played Luke Skywalker, Mark Hamill unknown when he won the role!
Star Wars: Episode VII is to begin filming at Pinewood Studios in Spring 2014. The movie is set for a 2015 release.
