Andrea Arnold made the following comments this week to the BBC:
"Think about Heathcliff, he's an outsider, he's a Gypsy boy. It's a big class story. All my films have been about class, and Wuthering Heights is more of the same," she said.
"We are in pre-production, running up and down to Yorkshire and meeting people. It's forming itself." Asked about casting, Arnold said: "I've got a picture of someone on my phone, but I'm not going to show you!"


  1. I've only just turned 22... Can I still audition?

  2. If you look younger than 22 I'm sure you could still attend the open audition.

  3. ive just missed it. any chance of another audition going out?

  4. I'm not sure that they'll be holding another open, but there's still time to send your CV in.

  5. I am Brazilian. I speak English fluently. I'm going to study in Los Angeles next year. I want to be an actress, so I'll try to do auditions. I don't wanna be here because we've many artists worthy of garbage that are only interested in get famous. I'm pale-skinned, a long brown chocolate hair, brown eyes and I'm 12 but apparently I'm 13-16 ...

    so, what way do you show me to go?
    like ... auditions, characters

    *I'd love play Cathy (I looove the book),
    but, i can't because i haven't her physical characteristics.

  6. Please consider me for any extra parts.
    I live in Haworth and am a Spotlight and Equity actress, just google me.
    Thanks, Mia Vore.

  7. Hello
    I'm a 15 year old girl. I am immensely interested in the part and would love to have the chance to audition; it would be a dream come true for me. I am 5ft 4in tall, dress size 8-10, have long dark brown curly hair and clear blue/green eyes.

    I have a big personality, am very bubbly, love to be on camera and am very outgoing. I love to talk in front of people, and I would love to take part in this movie. I love to act and take on the role of someone else; learn what they would do and how they would act in different situations. I am very good at learning lines.


  8. I'm from yorkshire but not pail skinned and i'm 13.
