Potter Maniac fire up your Potterphiles among you. Warner Bros. has started casting on Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and they’re looking for their Luna Lovegood.
They’re looking for girls between the ages of thirteen and sixteen years old, who are residents of the UK or Ireland (sorry Americans!).
Now hold on, don’t get excited and think you can show up and take over for Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter. Nor are they casting dragons or background scenery. They’ve made it clear to us here at CB Central that Luna Lovegood is the only role they’re casting right now, so if you’ve ever thought of yourself as a Luna Lovegood type and you’re a good CB Reader from across the pond then give it a shot by showing up at: the Central Hall Westminster Storey’s Gate, Westminster, London SW 1 on Saturday January 14th.
Neeeerds…. please don’t show up in costumes. That’s not cool, even the people at Warner Brothers think it’s kind of dorky. Leave your makeup off (What are you doing wearing makeup at that age?), forget your high heels (Seriously, you’re a kid! Cut it out!), put on some nice flannel and see if you can get a part in Harry Potter 5.
The role is for Luna Lovegood, and no experience is necessary. Here are some of details:
1 – Be a 13-16 year old girl who lives in the UK or Ireland (if you’re not either of these they won’t consider you)
2 – The application date is Saturday 14th of January, 2006
3 – Be at The Central Hall Westminster, Storey’s Gate, Westminster, London SW1 (Nearest underground stations: St James Park & Westminster)
4 – They will take applications starting at 10am, with no queueing before 8am, and will be closing at 2pm
5 – You will need to show a copy of your passport for proof of age and nationality.
6 – You’ll fill out an application form and will be seen by the casting team. If you’ve got a shot, your photo will be taken, and you will be contacted.
7 – Again, you must be a resident of the UK or Ireland; if you do not have the proper paperwork you will not be considered.
8 – Dress warmly
9 – No other roles need filling.
10 – No makeup, no costumes and no high heels.
