Two young performers needed for a new film

Kathleen Crawford Casting are looking for a young boy aged 5 - 8 (who can pass for 4 - 6) and a young girl aged 7 - 9 (who can pass for 6-7) for a new film called Country music

About the characters

The character comes from a very normal/modest background and is recognisably Glaswegian.

Wynonna took on responsibilities at a young age, looking out for her brother Lyle when her mum wasn’t around (their gran has been bringing them up while their mother was out of the picture for a year or two) This has made her a serious, earnest and doleful little creature. She is quiet and introverted, but she sees everything going on around her, and she can always intuit her mother’s precarious array of emotions.

The character comes from a very normal/modest background and is recognisably Glaswegian.

Lyle is a chatterbox with hilarious Glaswegian humour. He has recently picked up a few cheeky words, and is always playing energetically - whether that’s impersonating his gran, being a fireman or chirping away to himself.

How to apply
Please send your contact details, child’s name, DOB and age with your council area (for child license info) and info of ANY drama experience they have to -  country@kahleencrawford.com

A comedy thriller directed by Ninian Doff

Shooting for 5 weeks around June-Aug 2017 tbc

The story centres around four teenage Scottish boys who embark on the Duke of Edinburgh Award but things soon take a turn for the worse. The language the teenagers use is typical of today’s teenagers and therefore fairly colourful…

Actors should send a headshot and contact details to office@colinjonescasting.com and they will be in touch if they think you are suitable for one of the roles.
