Casting call for Series 2 of The Sparticle Mystery

Casting is underway to find new young actors for the second series of CBBC drama The Sparticle Mystery.

We are looking for boys & girls of all shapes, sizes, ethnicities & abilities. This series will shoot in the north of England between 23rd July and 23rd September 2012.

If you are interested in being considered for this project, please EMAIL us (NO PHONE CALLS) with the following information – you MUST include all the required details listed below:

-Full name
-Age & Date of Birth
-Where you live (which town/city)
-Any previous acting experience
-Include a recent PHOTO
-Include a contact email address & phone number
-Anything else you think we should know about you

If we think you may be suitable for a part, we will contact you to invite you to an audition (meetings will be by appointment only) and PLEASE NOTE: if you are called for an audition, you will need to be accompanied by an adult.

  15. I heard there are some auditions tonight but the person got it through an agency... so hopefull they'll audition some people who dont have auditions after :) the closing date was the 30th May on some websites :/ xx

    ReplyDelete
  16. do you think they want a full photo, or is it ok to send just a headshot??? xx

    ReplyDelete
  17. I sent a headshot, full body shot and half body shot, and they are supposed to be looking for new young actors, not ones that already are with agencies >_> Where did you get this info? I wanna be up to date

    ReplyDelete
  18. i got it from a different website notapushymum.com but type into google notapushymum sparticle mystery and it should come up with direct link cos the websites quite confusing... hopefully they'll audition people without agents after... I just sent a headshot aswell with some work I have done... fingers crossed they contact us later :) X

    ReplyDelete
  19. hmmm... it's all very confusing, Good Luck to everyone who's emailed- :D xxx

    1. Where was it that your daughter auditioned? :) x

  21. Yeah, apparently they are auditioning kids with agencies first :) x

    ReplyDelete
  22. Because apparently they're 'better' than us undiscovered talents :P

    ReplyDelete
  23. no... if they auditioned everyone at the same time there would be loads at the audition... and they want to make sure they can trust the people who they give the job to and they just think people with agents will be more trustworthy... unfair, especially when they say its an open audition, but we just have to hope that they audition people without agents after :) Good luck X

    ReplyDelete
  24. They probably will audition people without agents after otherwise there would have been no point in them posting advertisement plus on another website it says Experience: no experience needed, it's who fits the part :) x

    ReplyDelete
  25. yeh thats what I think... :) X

    ReplyDelete
  26. just heard that those who e-mailed without an agency from Mancester are auditioning next week... but people from Leeds or Sheffield havent heard back... Not sure how reliable this is because wasnt really sure if the person actually ment people without agents... but just passing info on to keep everyone informed hopefully we'll all get an e-mail soon... I'm from Leeds and havent heard anything. X

  27. Yeah I found out that there are auditions next week. I'm not sure is this is true, I found it on 'notapushymum'. I am from near Manchester but I haven't got an audition yet. I don't have an agent either. I wish they would give people without agents a chance!
    Good luck everyone who has applied.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Apparently the auditions next week are for the people who haven't applied :) x

    ReplyDelete
  29. For people who haven't applied??? :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yeah :) I think there doing it by Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield because they have auditioned people with agents from Manchester and are going to do the non agent people next week. (from what I have heard) :) x

    ReplyDelete
  31. owww, that's annoying. I'm from near Manchester and they haven't asked me for an audition. I suppose they've got people going to the audition with loads of professional experience (which I haven't got.) Does anyone think I still might get an audition - I guess not though.
    Has anyone got an audition yet?
    :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Bella11 are you the same Bella from notapushymum.com if so I guess you got an audition then ? :) x

    ReplyDelete
  33. Aww, i'm sad, so, wait, are they auditioning people who have applied yet?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think so, just Manchester ones at the mo :) x

    ReplyDelete
  35. i'm from Manchester and didnt get a reply :/

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh, well you never know, they might be casting specific people at the weekend and are doing some more later :) x

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yeah, i am the same person who was on 'notapushymum' I hope I don't seem really needy comenting on 2 sites - its just I really really want to be an actress! Nope I haven't got an audition, I was just asking because loads if people seem to have auditions, but me!
    And Connor, I'm close to Manchester and I don't have an audition either. You never know we might still get one but just not this week, but thier doing all the people with agents first. People without agents could be just as good, but the casting directors know that agents are more reliable - it's annoying, I know, but I guess that's just how it works. :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Can I point out that the call still is open for another month so if you haven't had a reply don't worry!

    ReplyDelete
  39. What's the date of when the open casting call ends?

    ReplyDelete
  40. It says that you can apply up to the 30th of May :) x

    ReplyDelete
  41. Have also applied, good luck to all!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh yeah! Just got a reply, just to notify that they are havng more than just one audition week in Manchester and are doing more in the coming weeks.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Just in Manchester is that? :) well done Conner!x

    ReplyDelete
  44. Well done... whens your audition? X

    ReplyDelete
  45. Wow!Lucky!
    What did they say back to you on the e-mail?
    Well done anyway :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. No no no, they didn't say I had n audition, it was a reply because I asked exactly what was going on this week and they told me that the are doing a few in manchester, then in the other areas then back to Manchester etc

    ReplyDelete
  47. ohhh! Sorry it just sounded a bit like you had an audition. Did they really reply to you! They must be quite interested in you to reply.
    Does anyone reckon I should re-send my email, to let them know I'm still interested? Or that just be annoying them? :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Probably be too annoying, just let it flow, it's not a big deal if ll they're doing is answerng a question XD

    ReplyDelete
  49. Hi there guys, definitely do not email the casting director a second time if they did not reply to your first email, unless of course you have a direct/urgent question to ask. It is just likely to annoy them, and could decrease your chances of getting an audition. If they're interested in you then they will email you back eventually, even if it's not for ages. If they're not intersted in you then unfortunately it's unlikely you'll ever hear back. Best of luck to all of you! :)

    1. Yeahhh, I won't email them again. They probably would get annoyed, thanks :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I haven't got an audition but I do know that there were Leeds auditions yesterday. I am still hoping I get an audition but I know I probably won't.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Hi again,

    I got a reply, but it didn't say that I have got an audition but she said that they have had over 1000 submissions, and first they are doing people with agents and in the area of Leeds and Manchester, but later on they will still be doing people with out agents, in any area of the UK but first Manchester/Leeds. She also said it won't be decided until August/July, so if people don't have auditions yet - Don't worry.

    Bella :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. did you write to her to ask that?
    Good luck everyone looks like we still might have a chance :)
    Xx

    ReplyDelete
  60. Nope, I didn't - it was a reply to my original email. Yeah good luck everyone - there still might be a chance of getting an audition.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I applied on the 17th and I'm really I will get a audition, do you reckon it was too late?

    ReplyDelete
  62. no because the closing date was the 30th May apparently... If we didnt get one of those e-mails does that mean we arent in the runnung for an audition do you reckon... did anyone else get one without asking? When did you e-mail Bella11?
    xx

    ReplyDelete
  63. I emailed on the day it was advertised and I didn't get an email back? :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Well, I actually emailed 2 emails but they both said the same thing. I accidentally emailed the second one when I was checking what I put on the first email, when it sent again (I pressed reply to all - I didn't mean to!) But this was only about 5 days after I sent the first one, which was the 25th April. So the only reason they probably sent an email back to me was because I was annoying them, and they probably just got annoyed and thought oh, I'll have to reply to shut her up! So technically it was my original email - but It kind of wasn't at the same time. She said it was too early on in the process to do people without agents, but they defiantly will. If you didn't get an email back like I did, I don't think it makes any difference.
    Also what kind of things did people put on their emails? I just did a cover letter and headshots, but also my CV. Did other people put CV's? If anyone has, what kind of acting experience did you put on yours? I only have amateur experience, so I just want to know what other people put, because mine may sound a bit pathetic.
    Woaaa! I didn't realise how long this message was! :S
    Bella :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. I sent my CV but I only have like school plays and drama class plays so mine is probs a bit pathetic :( really hope i get an audition i applied on the same day that it came out :)
    xx

    ReplyDelete
  66. I put a headshot,letter n CV. I have done theater work and some more theatre work but thats pretty much it. Not anything big like 'Matilda' or 'We will rock you' . Hope they give us a try cause I only got into acting a year ago and spent most of that in drama classes too.
    Tolu x :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. yeh I also put a head shot in :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. anybody got an e-mail yet? The deadline is supposidly tomorrow so hopefull should hear soon :) X

    ReplyDelete
  69. What did you guys write for the subject on the email? :) x

    ReplyDelete
  70. Hi, thought I should tell you guys that they are only auditioning kids from Leeds and Manchester now. They have not finished casting tho yet x :(

    ReplyDelete
  71. What about the children from Sheffield because that was included in the areas they wanted the children to come from?

    ReplyDelete
  72. I know I got an email from the assistant and she said they are only auditioning people from Leeds and Manchester x

    ReplyDelete
  73. Yeah same Molly, she said they are only doing Manchester and Leeds at the moment, but if they don't find anyone from there they will go to other places. Molly, did you get an email from Becca Toogood? Just wondering because that's who replied to me.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Umm... I can't remember but I know it was an assistant, she told me they were only doing auditions in Manchester and Leeds she didn't say 'at the moment' so I took that as a you haven't got a audition because no-one from Sheffield has even tho I can still get to Leeds and Manchester. But I didn't put that in my submission so I'm feel pretty stupid now :/ x

    ReplyDelete
  75. I didn't know the closing date and applied yesterday :P How stupid am I...

    ReplyDelete
  76. It doesn't really matter when you applied, because she said to me the casting won't be finished until July/Aug and bet loads of other people have applied at the same time as you. Someone might still reply, but don't keep your hopes up, they've already had 1000+ emails... That's loads. Oh and also it doesn't mean that when the closing date has past, they still won't read your email, it's not like the emails been closed down or anything, they'll still get your email. :) x

    ReplyDelete
  77. Hi I just wanna say something about this conversation, your all stupid if they've not contacted you there not interested come on if you don't have an agent you've got no chance just face it guys if you wanna be an actress or actor then you've got to get a agent.
