From The Press and Journal:
‘More than 40 youths aged 16-18 attended an open casting audition at Perth Theatre on Saturday for two of the lead roles in the film A Boy and His Shoe.
‘The would-be movie stars were given dialogue to read as well as improvisation tasks and an informal chat in front of the cameras with casting director Kahleen Crawford.
‘A spokeswoman for Ms Crawford said several of the youngsters had “caught the eye”. “Kahleen was impressed with a few of the people she saw so it was worth doing,” she said.
‘“Alfonso Cuarao is one of the most respected contemporary directors and the fact he’s bringing the film to Scotland and looking for fresh talent is a great opportunity.”
‘Anyone who missed the audition still has time to put themselves forward for the roles. Budding actors can e-mail their full contact details, address and a recent photograph to scottishfilm @yahoo.com.’
