Re: Over 20+ Playing 14-15 Year Olds

A CD was commenting on this at a workshop my daughter attended last year - interestingly, she said that although it may be thought that as the older person had more training, looks just as young and could easily pass for the part - her opinion was that they would not have the same 'thought processe...

Re: The Globe Young Players -casting this summer

We are also on holiday during the audition period so can't attend the auditions either. I think a lot of people are away, but there will be plenty of other people to take the places.

Re: The Globe Young Players -casting this summer

Re: Re-call for role already played. Is this normal?

Last year my DS was cast for a minor role in a very successful CBBC comedy/drama. To cut a long story short the production team were, to say the least, dis-organised and we ended up having all sorts of trouble. To the 2nd AD it looked like WE were causing the problems (i.e. not arriving for filming...

Re: Star Now Advice & Safety

As the mother of a child actor I'd like to echo the above comments but also add something - some of the ones we've been to turn out to be a private address and not a hired space. This is a fine line between extremely worrying and laid back young people who didn't give this situation a thought. You h...

Re: Star Now - Sub Rosa

Thanks for the heads up on this.

However they approach it and make it sound reasonable :shock: at the end of the day all the perverts are really going to get off on it. :shock:

I agree with all above about protecting our DCs.

Re: Mark Jermin

Are you serious?! That is terrible. Why does he keep your children on his books then? :shock: Have you been regularly updating their photos? That would help. I would phone and ask why if I were you. I'm sorry to hear this.

Re: Best agency annual awards

Taken me ages to find this thread. ;) :lol: The categories are great BUT in the 'Best Under 8' and Best 8-16' could they be broken down further within that spec for models, Extras, commercials, Actors? So its not misleading? I'd love a category for 'most rude and inflated egotistical agent' but that...

Re: Can I ask my agent to put me forward for a certian job?

Its important to remember your agent works for YOU. Dont be afraid to ask but dont be rude. Just ask if you have been submitted as you thought you were really suitable for it. The agent might say there was more to the casting breakdown and explain what that was and why he/she didnt put your forward....

Re: KCCP Feature Film DS Asked To Audition

No, but if its weekends and its a great opportunity you will just have to do a deal with your DS that they revise during the week and cut back on doing other things.
