Narnia's Anna Popplewell stars in Passengers

Chronicles of Narnia star, 23 year old Anna Popplewell (represented in the UK by Sasha Leslie Management) leads the cast in Passengers, a hard-hitting pyschological thriller which was filmed in and around Birmingham in October.

Written and directed by John Hales (represented by Ed Hughes at Linda Seifert Management), Passengers is the story of a group of intoxicated lads driving to a music festival, who seriously injure a young nurse in a night time collision. They make matters far worse by trying to cover up their mistake by hastening the demise of their victim. This, they come to seriously regret as they realise the extent of their culpability and as an unseen killer proceeds to take brutal vengeance.


Jack Derges, a recent Arts Ed drama school graduate, now represented by Hamilton Hodell, stars as Jed Warner. 

Calvin Dean (represented by Williamson and Holmes), who starred as Darren Mullet in Tormented, plays Rog. 25 year old Danny Szam plays Jed's brother Anakin Warner, with Tom Bacon, Ian Weichardt as Paz, and Sophie Colquhoun (from the latest Eastenders:E20) completing the line-up.

Passengers is the first feature to come out of UK production company Ratio Film and is scheduled for release in 2012.

Jack Whitehall's Little Cracker

10 year old Archie Lyndhurst from Chichester, son of Only Fools and Horses actor Nicholas Lyndhurst, has landed the role of a young Jack Whitehall in this Christmas's season of Sky1's Little Crackers.


Jack's Little Cracker is the story of his relationship with his father when he was growing up from the ages of about 10 and 11.

Or as Jack describes it: "Back then I liked to dress up - a lot. It's the tale of a camp little boy who grew up into a camp adult and defines who I am now. I was a show-off and a bit flamboyant, and that's where it all started, with my parents indulging me and not telling me to stop dressing like an idiot and behaving like a tit."

On Archie's casting, he added:
"Initially, we thought it was going to be so difficult that we cut down a lot of the stuff that my character said because we were worried that the actor wasn't going to be good enough. Then our casting director found Archie Lyndhurst [son of Nicholas]. We took one look at his audition tape, and he was so good that I went back and added in all the lines that we'd taken out. I think the star of the Little Crackers will be Archie. He definitely has some of his father's comedic ability, and I'm sure he's a star of the future."

22 year old Jack (represented by Chambers Management), from London, started out as a child actor before turning to stand-up comedy and he won Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Festival Comedy Awards in 2009. He was recently seen starring in Channel 4's Fresh Meat.

After the success of last year's series which featured shorts from Stephen Fry, Dawn French, Jo Brand, and Catherine Tate amongst others, Sky  have secured another star-studded line-up for their cracking short film series.

The new series for this Christmas features along with Jack Whitehall, Sheridan Smith, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Jane Horrocks, Barbara Windsor, Shappi Korsandi, Johnny Vegas, Harry Hill, John Bishop, Alan Davies and Sally Lindsay. The series gives stars the chance to tell how they did something for the first time.

First look at the young cast of the Doctor Who Christmas Special


The Doctor Who Christmas Special for 2011 is inspired by C.S. Lewis’ Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe and titled ‘The Doctor, The Widow, and The Wardrobe’…

It’s Christmas Eve, 1938, when Madge Arwell comes to the aid of an injured Spaceman Angel as she cycles home, in this year’s Doctor Who Christmas Special, starring Matt Smith as the Doctor.
He promises to repay her kindness – all she has to do is make a wish.

Three years later, a devastated Madge escapes war-torn London with her two children for a dilapidated house in Dorset. She is crippled with grief at the news her husband has been lost over the channel, but determined to give Lily and Cyril the best Christmas ever.

The Arwells are surprised to be greeted by a madcap caretaker whose mysterious Christmas gift leads them into a magical wintry world. Here, Madge will learn how to be braver than she ever thought possible. And that wishes can come true…

Madge Arwell is played by Claire Skinner, 15 year old Lily Arwell by Holly Earl (represented by A&J Management) and 11 year old Cyril Arwell by Maurice Cole (represented by Hamilton Hodell).

Also guest-starring in the episode are Alexander Armstrong, Bill Bailey and Arabella Weir and it is set to air on BBC1 on Christmas Day.

15 year old Izzy Meikle-Small (represented by United Agents) who starred as Young Cathy in Never Let Me Go, and recently filmed Young Molly in Private Peaceful, and 24 year old Vanessa Kirby (represented by Ken McReddie), who also made Screen International's Stars of Tomorrow 2011 list, share the role of Estella.

Ender's Game

14 year old British rising star Asa Butterfield (represented in the UK by Independent Talent) could be going from one big project to an even bigger one.

As publicity starts on the highly anticipated Martin Scorsese 3D feature Hugo, in which Asa takes the title role opposite prolific child actor Chloe Moretz, Deadline reports that he has been offered the lead in one of the most highly anticipated book adaptations in years, Ender's Game. After testing several young actors, director Gavin Hood has apparently chosen Butterfield to star as boy genius Andrew “Ender” Wiggin in the adaptation of the seminal Orson Scott Card sci-fi book series.

Set in a futuristic world where the human race has been all but wiped out by a race of bug-like aliens called Formics, the government recruits the best and brightest children to attend Battle School, where they are trained in the art of war through a series of games, including one in an anti-gravity Battle Room. When Ender’s genius is revealed, he is promoted to Command School to act as a leader of children’s armies to “simulated” wars against the Formics, to largely successful outcomes.

There is no confirmation yet as to whether the 14-year-old Londoner has accepted the part. Asa started acting at The Young Actor's Theatre in Islington and made an acclaimed debut playing Bruno in The Boy in The Striped Pyjamas, and more recently starred as Norman in the second Nanny McPhee feature.

Other key characters still to be cast include Ender’s older siblings, the protective Valentine and cruel Peter.

Ender's Game is set to shoot in February 2012 in New Orleans, LA, and scheduled for a release in spring 2013.

Sally Potter's Bomb casting news

Despite holding an online casting call to try and find a British or Irish girl to play the lead in Sally Potter's latest film Bomb with over 1500 applications, the producers have played it safe and cast American starlet Elle Fanning, as reported by Deadline.

Bomb, written and directed by Sally Potter, is about two young rebels at the forefront of political, social and sexual change, and is set in London in the early Sixties.

13 year old Elle will take the lead role of Ginger, described as the ‘brainy’ one who wants to get involved with the anti-nuclear movement in 1960s London, but as the cold war meets the sexual revolution, it’s her family that threatens to explode. She appeared in this summer’s blockbuster Super 8 and will shortly be seen in Cameron Crowe's forthcoming drama We Bought A Zoo.

Joining her will be 17 year old New Zealander Alice Englert, playing Rosa, who ends up having an affair with her best friend's father, a free thinking, charismatic writer played by Alessandro Nivola. Alice (represented in the UK by Hamilton Hodell) is the daughter of Oscar-winning director Jane Campion and film-maker Colin Englert. Alice started as an open-mic performer in Sydney and started acting when cast in Roland Joffe’s movie Singularity, which is shooting now.

Potter, best known for her celebrated movies Orlando and The Tango Lesson, confirmed the casting, noting that Elle has a ‘subtlety and range beyond her years’.

‘She can move you to tears, then light up the room with her radiant smile.’

She said Alice ‘is a beautiful, intelligent young woman with the movies in her bones. Together, playing teenage rebels, they are sure to be a pair of firecrackers.’

Potter and her producer Christopher Sheppard held an online casting call to get candidates to audition, and in all 1,500 girls sent in videos of themselves and Potter and her team met 30.

Filming on the BFI and BBC Films production will begin in early February 2012 in and around London and the South Coast.

Watch the trailer above and read the full synopsis below:



Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games.

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she's ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

The Hunger Games stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Willow Shields, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, and Stanley Tucci and is released in the UK in March 2012.

Fast Girls

Shooting is about to start in and around London on Fast Girls, a feature film about a rivalry on the athletics track between two girls from different backgrounds, scripted by Noel Clarke, Jay Basu and Roy Williams and directed by commercials director Regan Hall.

Two worlds collide on the athletics track when streetwise Shania meets ambitious, middle-class Lisa. The two girls eventually overcome their rivalry and unite to achieve their ultimate dream of reaching a championship final.



Lenora Crichlow (Being Human), represented by BWH, takes the lead role of Shania, a 100m sprinter from the London ghetto.


Guildhall drama school graduate Lily James (represented by Tavistock Wood) who received rave reviews for her portrayal of Desdemona opposite Dominic West in The Sheffield Crucible's production of Othello, stars alongside her as Lisa. Lily played Ethel Brown in last year's CBBC drama Just William.


Also on the team of girl sprinters are Arts Ed graduate Lashana Lynch (also represented by BWH), dancer Dominique Tipper, and genuine athlete, triple-jumper Hannah Frankson.

Noel Clarke will play Tommy, with Merlin star Bradley James as Carl, with Rupert Graves, Phil Davies, and Lorraine Burroughs also amongst the cast.

If you'd like to take part in the film, the production team are looking for extras for the crowd scenes as well as experienced athletes to take part in the races.

The aim is to release the film in the UK in June 2012 in time for the 2012 London Olympics.

The Boarding School Bomber

Adam Deacon (Adulthood, Anuvahood and Demons Never Die) stars in a a compelling new film The Boarding School Bomber which tells the true story of how and why a public schoolboy became a would-be suicide bomber.

In 2008 the police received an anonymous phone call from a member of the Bristol Muslim community telling them a young man had been seen with burn marks on his hands, talking about suicide bombing.

But the 19-year old in question, Isa Ibrahim, was not your typical suicide bomber. Born in a leafy Bristol suburb to a middle class family with supportive, loving, Christian parents, Isa (born Andrew) had been to some of the most prestigious public schools in the country - Downside, Colston’s, Queen Elizabeth Hospital - and had a privileged upbringing. However, his life didn’t quite take the same direction as his older Oxford-educated, lawyer brother.

This is a little known story, and one that took place just three years after the 7/7 bombings in London. It reveals how the actions of just one boy could have led to another devastating terrorist atrocity on our shores.


The drama/documentary combines powerful drama with insightful interviews with Andrew’s friends and mother. It charts the decisions and wrong turns he took in his life, tracking his journey from schoolboy pranks to struggling teenager, from a boy looking for his identity to a young man looking for a target.

The cast also includes Stefano Braschi as Isa's brother and Skins star Larissa Wilson as a student.

The 60 minute film is at 9pm Monday 21st November 2011 on BBC Three.

The Host casting news

A British actor will star alongside 17 year old Saoirse Ronan in The Host, the new screen adaptation of the bestselling novel by Twilight Saga author Stephenie Meyer.

26 year old Max Irons has landed the role of Jared, who Melanie (Ronan) is in love with. Max (represented in the UK by Tavistock Wood) was recently seen in Sky's The Runaway and starred as Henry in the fantasy film Red Riding Hood. He is the son of Jeremy Irons and Sinead Cusack, and trained at Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

Reports suggest he beat out Miley Cyrus' boyfriend Liam Hemsworth and Kit Harrington from Game of Thrones for the part.

Saoirse has been attached to the film for a while and will play Melanie Stryder, one of the last humans putting up a fight against an alien species called Souls. These parasites invade human bodies, fuse to each person’s consciousness and systematically erase their personalities. Melanie is captured by the aliens and implanted by a Soul called Wanderer, something of a legend because of all of the “hosts” she has attached to on numerous planets. Wanderer’s goal is to get Melanie to give up the remaining pockets of humans, but instead the alien finds Melanie to be unique in her unwillingness to surrender her consciousness. Wanderer is so overwhelmed by Melanie’s memories and feelings, the alien is driven to reconnect with Melanie’s old life.

Jake Abel who featured alongside Ronan in The Lovely Bones will play Ian, a man who falls in love with Wanderer despite the fact that she is in the body of Melanie...

The film will begin shooting in February 2012 in Louisiana and then New Mexico.

Postcode coming soon to CBBC

Screenterrier posted the casting call for new CBBC series Postcode back in May last year, and now the series is about to hit our screens.

Postcode stars a line-up of new talent:
Rwanda-born 17 year old Roger Nsengiyumva, from Norwich, who made his screen debut last year in feature film Africa United takes the lead role of Jamal. He is joined by newcomer Manpreet Bambra (represented by Kelly Management) as female lead Sheela and another newcomer 17 year old Robert Eades from London stars as Zak.

The three-part drama, written by the BAFTA-winning screenwriter Tony Marchant, follows a group of young people with diverse backgrounds who share a postcode – but very little else.

In the first episode of the three-part drama, viewers meet Jamal, a Somali refugee from the local estate, and Zac, who lives in a posh house just around the corner.

When their paths cross by accident at the local Mini Mart, the pair awkwardly try to start a friendship. But pressure from Jamal’s pals to join their gang, and Zac’s friends to stay within the privileged bounds of their end of the ‘postcode’ make it hard to break down the barriers.

Can their friendship survive when Zac catches Jamal looking round his house and is forced to call the police?

The cast also features Sebastian Nanena as Sheela's brother Malik, Layton Williams, Alice Sykes, Dominic Applewhite and Yusra Warsama (Stolen), Amanda Abbington (Case Histories) and Shaun Dooley (South Riding, Five Days).

Postcode will transmit Tuesday 6th - Thursday 8th  December, 5.45-6.20pm on CBBC.

Rising star Alexandra Roach to join Dakota Fanning in Girl's Night Out

24 year Welsh actress Alexandra Roach will be joining Dakota Fanning in Girl's Night Out.

She is to play a young Princess Elizabeth in Michael Hoffman's planned film about the future queen and her sister, Princess Margaret, being allowed out of Buckingham Palace to celebrate the end of the second world war in 1945.

Dakota Fanning became attached to the project to play a young Princess Margaret back in February as reported on Screenterrier.

Alexandra (represented by Troika) has been cast in five leading productions just a year after leaving drama school (RADA). We first saw her in Being Human, and she has since filmed The Iron Lady, Trap for Cinderella, Private Peaceful and is currently filming the role Countess Nordston opposite Keira Knightley, Jude Law and Aaron Johnson in Joe Wright's Anna Karenina.

In her first newspaper interview, she told the Observer that she was pinching herself in disbelief: "I know it sounds corny, but that's exactly what I'm doing."

She is not starry-eyed enough to forget that acting is an industry which, whatever the talent, requires incredible luck. "I'm just very lucky [and] under no illusion that it could stop any second."

Her break came after she was spotted by Nina Gold, a casting director, in a Rada production, leading to an invitation to audition for one of the most sought-after roles for a young actress – playing the young Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady, the much anticipated film with Meryl Streep as the older Thatcher.

Arriving for the audition in the former prime minister's trademark blue suit, handbag and "set and curl" hair got her into the role in every sense, despite, at an earlier audition, nervously forgetting lines.

Alexandra got into acting as a child, appearing regularly in a Welsh-language soap. "My next-door neighbour was going to a drama class. I was bored, so she invited me along," she explained. "That Saturday, they were casting for Pobol y Cwm (People of the Valley) and I got the job." So, between the ages of 11 and 18, she appeared on Welsh television as "the village troublemaker", Elin Owen, a part for which she won a Children in Entertainment award in 2003.

Jones, the Iron Lady producer, said that Roach stood out from the other potentials who auditioned: "She had a steeliness we were looking for in our young Margaret. Her talent was self-evident."

First images from Now is Good

Now Is Good has a great young cast headed by Dakota Fanning as Tessa,  a teenager with just a few months to live.

The film is based on Jenny Downham's debut novel "Before I Die". The screenplay was written by Ol Parker who also directs, and Paddy Considine and Olivia Williams co-star alongside the youngsters.



Joining Dakota are a host of young British talent including Jeremy Irvine as Adam, Kaya Scodelario as Zoey, with Joe Cole, Franz Drameh and Tom Kane.

The film also introduces newcomer ten year old Edgar Canham as Cal, Tessa's younger brother. Edgar who attends ESTA, a Saturday drama school in Chiswick, also had a small role in War Horse also alongside Jeremy Irvine.

The official synopsis:

Tessa is seventeen and passionate about life.  Diagnosed with a terminal illness, she determines to use every moment, compiling a catalogue of what normal teenager would experience, including losing her virginity and taking drugs.  With the help of her friend, she sets the list in motion.  And while her parents and brother each deals with their fear of losing her in their own way, Tessa explores a whole new world, determined to live every day as intensely as possible.  Falling in love with Adam, her new neighbor, wasn’t on the list, but it proves to be the most exhilarating experience of them all.

Sheridan Smith's Little Cracker

Six year old Frankie Taylor from Finningley beat competition from across the UK to win the role of the young Sheridan Smith in Sheridan's episode of Sky's Little Crackers, a casting call that was posted on Screenterrier back in September.

Sheridan said of Frankie:
"She's gorgeous and she's acting us all off the screen. She's so talented. Frankie's actually from Doncaster and when I went to the auditions for the little ones, she was walking down the street and from behind with her long hair, I thought that she looked like I used to. Then there she was at the audition and she got the part - she's brilliant."

Due to appear on Sky before Christmas, Sheridan’s episode shows her as a child tired of being left at home with her big brothers and boring babysitter as her parents head out to perform their country and western gigs, so she devises a plan to escape the sitter and gate crash the gig  at a South Yorkshire working men’s club called Bentley Top Club, where her real parents really do appear at a country and western music night every Wednesday.

In the TV film, her dad Mark is played by former Royle Family star Ralf Little and her mother Madeleine is portrayed by Sheridan herself. Her brother Damian, who is front man with rock band the Torn, plays the part of a working men’s club chairman, while two young actors Tom Rolinson and Mark Flanagan (both represented by Scream Management) play Sheridan’s brothers Julian and Damian.

The episode was recently filmed at The Top Club in Millgate which was chosen as a location because Sheridan first performed there - standing on a stool - as a youngster with her parents, Doncaster-based country and western due The Daltons.

After the success of last year's series which featured shorts from Stephen Fry, Dawn French, Jo Brand, and Catherine Tate amongst others, Sky  have secured another star-studded line-up for their cracking short film series.

The new series for this Christmas features along with Sheridan Smith, Jack Whitehall (star of Fresh Meat), Sanjeev Bhaskar, Jane Horrocks, Barbara Windsor, Shappi Korsandi, Johnny Vegas, Harry Hill, John Bishop, Alan Davies and Sally Lindsay. The series gives stars the chance to tell how they did something for the first time.
