Only 4 Days until we come to Bristol to start off the Disney Open Auditions! We're all very excited here.
1. These could be the most exciting open auditions in the history of open auditions.
The @UKOpenCall Twitter account has been enthusiastically promoting a series of calls for an unnamed Disney movie.
3. Now, the BBC has learned that the auditions are in fact for roles in Star Wars: Episode VII.
Sessions will take place throughout November at venues in Bristol, Glasgow, London, Manchester and Dublin. Full details on the Facebook page.
4. There are two roles on offer.
5. A girl in her late teens to play an orphan known as “Rachel”.
She has become street smart and strong. She is able to take care of herself using humour 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.
6. For the male character “Thomas” they need somebody “handsome and athletic” and aged 19-23.
He has grown up without a father’s 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 appreciates the absurdities in life and understands you can’t take life too seriously.
