Casting call hits Croke Park Stadium Sat 23rd and Sun 24th November…

The open casting call for the new ‘Star Wars’ film scheduled for this weekend in Dublin is now confirmed to take place at CROKE PARK STADIUM on November 23-24th. The casting call is scheduled to take place from 11am – 3pm.

Entry will be from St Joseph’s Avenue gate off Conliffe Road, Dublin. Gates to the venue will not open until 8am.

Due to the expected extreme weather conditions, overnight camping/queuing will not be prohibited; anyone seeking to queue overnight will be turned away.

You can find the descriptions of the two characters that the casting team are specifically looking for below:

RACHEL:

Seeking: Young woman to play 17-18 Years old. Must be beautiful, smart and athletic. Open to all ethnicities (including bi- and multi-racial). Must be 16 or over.

Was quite young when she lost her parents. With no other family, she was forced to make her way alone in a tough, dangerous town. Now 17 she has become street smart and strong. She is able to take care of herself using humor and guts to get by.

Always a survivor, never a victim, she remains hopeful that she can move away from this harsh existence to a better life. She is always thinking of what she can do to move ahead.

THOMAS:

Seeking: Young man to play 19-23 years old. Must be handsome, smart and athletic. Must be 18 or over.

Has grown up without a father’s influence. Without the model of being a man, he doesn’t have the strongest sense of himself. Despite this, he is smart, capable and shows courage when it is needed. He can appreciate the absurdities in life and understands you can’t take life too seriously.

No other roles are being cast at this stage so please make sure you fit the basic criteria (men aged 19-23 and women aged 17-18) before making arrangements to attend the casting session.

‘Star Wars’ has a long tradition of casting new talent and it would be great if that unknown talent was found in Dublin!
