Sally Potter film casting

Sally Potter, the award-winning writer/director of ORLANDO, THE TANGO LESSON, THE MAN WHO CRIED, YES and RAGE is currently casting her new feature.

The film is set in London in 1961 at the time of the "Ban the Bomb" movement. Ginger and Rosa are nearly 16 and lifelong best friends who do everything together. Ginger is the "brainy" one who wants to get involved in the antinuclear protests while Rosa is more interested in boys.

Stars of Sally's previous films include Johnny Depp, Jude Law, Lily Cole, Judi Dench and Tilda Swinton.

She is looking for two teenage girls, aged 14 to 18 from the UK or Ireland, for the leading roles.

  2. Strictly speaking, 13 is too young but if you think you can convincingly play a 15/16 year-old, then you can still send in a video.

  4. Hello, I am Spanish, but been studying in a British school since I was 3, so I'm practically bilingual, can I send a video?

  6. Is there any specific accent you're looking for? Like, I mean you would want us to read the part in?

  7. The girls are from 1960s London. So a neutral English/London accent would be suitable.

  8. But there is no requirement for a particular accent.
