Have you got an aspiring actor in the house? JK Rowling’s Pottermore website (www.pottermore.com) has announced that there is an open casting call to find young people to play the roles of young Newt Scamander, Leta Lestrange, Gellert Grindelwald and Albus Dumbledore, among others in the sequel to Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. There are three roles for kids between the ages of 13 and 16, and two roles for 16 to 18 year old boys to play Gellert and Albus.
No acting experience is needed, but budding young actors should be eligible to work in the UK (must be EU, UK or Irish passport holders) and available for filming between August and November this year. For more information from the Pottermore site, click here – you’ve got until June 20th to apply.
