Swallows and Amazons starts casting

Calling all young sailors and budding actors

The child casting directors behind movies such as Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Atonement, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and Wrath of the Titans  are looking for boys and girls aged between 7-13 years for the roles of the Swallows – John, Susan, Titty and Roger – and the Amazons – Nancy and Peggy Blackett in the new film version of SWALLOWS & AMAZONS, based on the original book by Arthur Ransome.

No previous acting experience is necessary, and no specific standard of sailing is required.

They are looking for:
  • Boy aged 7 (Amateur sailor, happy to be on & in the water)
  • Boy aged 13 (Good, competent sailor)
  • Girls aged 9, 11 & 13 (Interested in sailing, happy to be on & in the water)

If you’re interested please email a picture, age, height, where you are based, plus any queries to CASTING IS NOW CLOSED.

Filming is set to take place this Summer (2013) in the UK.

  1. I applied for this casting and they sent an email literally two minutes later saying they had acknowledged my email and would respond in due course. Was that just an email they send to you after you have submitted it just as a confirmation? Did anyone else get it? Thanks

    2. Its an automated response so any one who applied would get it. I think they have decided or are deciding on people for auditions because my friend was told she had an audition.

  11. I didn't get the two minutes reply either. It's really frustrating me. Is it already too late? Have they closed the audition emails? Should I panic or not?
    It's been about two hours now since I sent the email.. :/

    1. If you got the auto reply saying that they would pursue you within 4-8 weeks if they were interested do you have a chance compared to people who got almost instant replies asking them to self tape?
