The Pottermore News Team revelead, exclusively, that Warner Bros. and the producers of the Fantastic Beasts sequel are recruiting young actors for five roles in the sequel, which begins filming late August. This news contain mild spoilers and must must be avoided for those who wish to be surprised.
They are searching for three actors in ages between 13 and 16, to portray younger versions of Newt Scamander, Leta Lestrange and a new character named Sebastian. They are also looking for actors between 16 and 18 to play younger versions of Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald (played by Jude Law and Johnny Depp in their present versions).
Those who wish to try must send an e-mail to [email protected] including a color photo no older than two months, telephone, residential address and date of birth before June 19 at midnight GMT. Those younger than 18 years old must obtain permission of their parents or legal guardians to send those details. Even though previous acting experience is not required, those who aspire for a role in the Wizarding World must have permission to work in the UK and be available for filming between August and November 2017.
All submissions will be reviewed, but only those approved in a first selection will be contacted.
Open casting calls are usual in the Wizarding World. Modesty Barebone’s actress, Faith Wood-Blagrove was selected this way, just like Evanna Lynch as Luna Lovegood and Katie Leung as Cho Chang.
The sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will show an increasingly dark time for the wizarding world. With scenes in Paris and London, the movie, yet to receive an official title, will premiere in November 16, 2018. The screenplay was written by J.K. Rowling and David Yates returns to direct his sixth movie in the wizarding world.
