Jaya is visiting her very sick brother Hanif in hospital. She is a little older than the other children with bags of attitude. She is incredibly protective and caring towards Hanif and initially is only listening to the story of “Peter Pan” to keep Hanif company but we soon see that she is as involved with the story as all the other children.

In the story of “Peter Pan” Jaya is also Tiger Lily. Tiger Lily is equally as confident as Jaya and very brave as she stands up to Hook to protect both her brother and Peter (who she holds somewhat of a candle for)

In her incarnation as Tiger Lily, Jaya is dressed as she imagines an Indian Princess would dress (think Princess Jasmine with bare midriff and perhaps shoulders on view).

MUST BE A REASONABLE SWIMMER.

All submissions should be sent to peterpancasting2015@gmail.com and should clearly state what role is being applied for in the email heading.

Sixteen to get UK release

Sixteen, the debut feature from writer/director Rob Brown is to get a UK theatrical release in March, initially in London with further screenings around the UK.

Sixteen is an urban thriller about which stars Roger Jean Nsengiyumva as Jumah a former African child soldier, brought to London by Laura (played by Rachael Stirling), an aid worker who he now lives with.

Roger (represented by United Agents) starred in the CBBC Drama Postcode and prior to that the acclaimed feature film Africa United.

Jumah is about to turn 16 in two days and wants to leave his violent past behind him. Things seem to have taken a turn for the better with Jumah now; he has a sweet but tentative romance blossoming with Chloe (played by Rosie Day) at school. But then Jumah witnesses a stabbing and the people involved want to make sure that Jumah says nothing to the police about what he saw that night. Pressure mounts as violence forces its way back into Jumah╩╝s life.

The film is informed by a range of real life cases discovered by Rob Brown during the research process. Additionally, lead star Roger Nsengiyumva called on the knowledge of Emmanuel Jal, friend and co-star in Africa United, who was a child soldier and has published an autobiography, War Child: A Child Soldier’s Story on the subject.

Sixteen will also have a select number of screenings in the US from April, and the film will then be available on Video-on-Demand.

Casting call for new ITV production of Peter Pan

Casting is under way for an exciting new production of Peter Pan for ITV.

Submissions are now CLOSED for the leading roles of Wendy/Lucy and Peter Pan.

Please read the submissions guidelines carefully.

Location: London & an abroad location TBC

Shooting: 20th April - end of June 2015

Below are the character briefs along with a description of what should be included in the email submissions.

The email address for all submissions is:

THIS CASTING IS NOW CLOSED

All submissions should clearly state what role they want to audition for in the email heading.

Lucy/Wendy (Female, 11 - 13)


Attach to your email a short video of you introducing yourself (in character) to the camera talking about how annoying it is to be a 12 year old girl who spends half her life in hospital.

If you prefer you can provide a link to a vimeo video. No external downloads from sites such as wetransfer please.

Metropolitan Middle class
Neutral accent
White
Age 11-13 (will consider older girls if they genuinely have a younger playing age)

A pretty young girl on the brink of her teenage years, dressed in jeans and Abercrombie and Fitch, an iPod earpiece in one ear. She is sophisticated but still young enough to be cuddled when she’s in a good mood. She looks like any other girl of her age and it is only on close inspection that we notice a paleness and shortness of breath.

She has grown up in hospitals and with that has a wiseness that is beyond her years. In her 12 years she has been through more than most people go through in a life time. But she doesn’t want to be defined by her illness.

She is witty, feisty and sarcastic and like any other young girl on the brink of becoming a teenager she has her mood swings; is determined not to be treated like a kid and wants her independence and to be a grown up (unlike Peter Pan).

Lucy reads the story of “Peter Pan” to the other children in the hospital and as the story starts to inter-twine with real life we also see Lucy as the role of Wendy.

Through her incarnation as Wendy we see her caring and looking after others, rather than being the one who is always looked after. Away from hospital operations and blood tests we see a lighter side to Lucy/Wendy.


We need an exceptional young actress for this lead role. MUST BE A REASONABLE SWIMMER.


Peter Pan (Male, 11 - 13)


Attach to your email a short video of you introducing yourself (in character) telling us all about the great adventures you have in Neverland.

If you prefer you can provide a link to a vimeo video. No external downloads from sites such as wetransfer please.

Any accent
White or mixed race
Age 11 - 13 (Voice should not have broken)

The loose cannon of our story. A boy on the cusp of an adulthood he refuses to enter.

Charming, charismatic, eager & enthusiastic, with bundles of energy. There is nothing effete about this Peter Pan. There is something elemental about him, both playful and wild. Not evil, but certainly a little savage/feral.

Beneath the bravado, there is an innocence; he is just another lost boy who longs for a mother. He does everything he can to cover this up and gets defensive and angry with Wendy when she challenges him on this.

It is important that we love Peter Pan, as all the characters in the story do. All the girls fall in love with him, the boys admire and want to be just like him and adults want to protect and care for him.

We need an exceptional young actor for this lead role. He must be able to move us emotionally as well as engage and entertain.

MUST BE A REASONABLE SWIMMER.

All submissions should be sent to THIS CASTING IS NOW CLOSED and should clearly state what role is being applied for in the email heading.
