Alexa Davies leads the cast in Spaceship, which has just started shooting in Farnborough and Guildford, Surrey.
Written and directed by Alex Taylor, Spaceship tells the story of a father's search for his daughter after an apparent alien abduction.
Alexa plays Lucidia, alongside Finish actor Antti Reini as Gabriel. Alexa (represented by BWH), one of Screenterrier's Faces to Watch 2014 will next be seen alongside Asa Butterfield in up coming feature X + Y, and has just completed filming on the first series of the Caitlin Moran family comedy series Raised By Wolves.
The film also stars Lara Peake (represented by Hamilton Hodell) as Tegan. Lara can currently be seen alongside George Mackay in Duane Hopkins feature Bypass.
They are joined by two newcomers, 20 year old Lucian Charles Collier (represented by Bananafish Management) from Leeds as Luke, and Tallulah Haddon from London.
“The story has gripped us all in a collective dream of what it is to be different and to want our own personal world in which we can be who we want,” said Taylor.
The film was developed through IFeatures, Creative England’s flagship low budge feature film initiative, which runs in partnership with the BFI Film Fund, BBC Films and Creative Skillset.
“iFeatures is all about supporting talented emerging filmmakers and Alex’s work is genuinely unique amongst British filmmakers” said iFeatures executive producer Tristan Goligher.
An open casting was held in Guildford to find young actors for supporting roles in the film.
