Two lead roles revealed in open casting call for a Disney film

November 6th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

An open casting call for a Disney film has gone out through the Twitter account of casting agent Claire Curry. It is by no means confirmed as such but, BBC News is reporting that the film in question is actually J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII.

The notice reads as follows:

SEEKING YOUNG WOMAN TO PLAY 17-18 YEAR OLD. MUST BE BEAUTIFUL, SMART AND ATHLETIC. OPEN TO ALL ETHNICITIES (INCLUDING BI AND MULTI RACIAL). MUST BE OVER 16.

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.

SEEKING YOUNG MAN TO PLAY 19-23 YEARS OLD. MUST BE HANDSOME, SMART AND ATHLETIC. MUST BE OVER 18.

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.

Keep in mind that, even if these roles are indeed for Star Wars: Episode VII, the details given in the bios may not fully be realized. This is for a J.J. Abrams movie after all.

In the UK auditions will start on November 9th in Bristol, and then take place in other locations around the UK and Ireland, including London, Dublin and Glasgow.

In the US open auditions also begin on November 7th, according to an online notice. Casting directors will be visiting cities including Nashville and Chicago as well as accepting online applications.
