casting of Robbie Kay and Alex Etel (pictured on set this month) in Gustavo Ron's "Ways to Live Forever" adapted from the highly acclaimed children's book by Sally Nicholls.
A month's shooting in Newcastle has just finished and the cast and crew are now off to Spain to film the last scenes of the film.
Also appearing in the film are Eloise Barnes (Mark Jermin Management), as his younger sister Ella. And Ella Purnell (to be seen as the young Keira Knightley in next year's Never Let Me Go) stars as his friend Kaleigh, who has more screentime in the film than in the book.
The film tells the story of 12-year-old leukemia sufferer Sam (played by Robbie Kay) who loves collecting fascinating facts, scary movies and spaceships and wants to try his first beer and kiss a girl. He also wants to know what happens when you die.
