Meet the cast of new CBBC football drama Jamie Johnson

To celebrate the Euro 2016 championships, CBBC presents a brand new three part drama, Jamie Johnson based on the best-selling books by Dan Freedman.

The series follows Jamie an eleven year old boy who dreams of becoming a famous footballer, a boy who lives and breathes football.  The three episode series follows Jamie starting a new school, making new friends, dealing with school bully Dillon, searching for his absent father and trying out for the school’s football team,  all with the support of his new friends Jack and Boggy.


12 year old Louis Dunn from Manchester, stars as Jamie, in his first ever TV acting role, who landed the role after attending the open audition.

He said "My form teacher from school, Miss Connor, told me there was an open audition for Jamie Johnson as she knew that I loved football. This is the first ever acting role I have gone for."
Louis is also a talented footballer, and like his character Jamie, dreams of becoming a professional footballer one day.

11 year old Olivia Lava from London plays Jack,
Olivia, who is also a keen footballer, described how she got the part: "I never wanted to be an actress or do any acting, but it was my mum who got me into it. Her agent would find parts for me to audition for, but I would never get them. One that came up was Jamie Johnson. After reading the books, I understood what kind of character Jack was, I said to myself, “This for me!” Then miraculously, about two days after the audition I had a phone call saying that I had got the part!"

12 year old Jonnie Kimmins from Buckinghamshire, plays Boggy.

Jonnie has been going to drama classes and clubs since he was small, and said "I’ve always really enjoyed performing. I was lucky enough to work with Joe, the Director when I was about 9 years old. When he started to make Jamie Johnson, he remembered me and asked me to audition for the part of Boggy."

Another newcomer and footballer, 12 year old Patrick Ward from Coventry, plays the school bully Dillon.

Produced by Short Form Film Company, the 3 x 30 minute children’s series, was filmed entirely in and around Nottingham, and has already been commissioned for a second series, which starts production in August.

Jamie Johnson will screen on CBBC, from June 13th to 15th, at 5pm each day.

Casting call for lead role in new Disney feature film



Lucy Bevan Casting are looking for the young lead role in Disney's 'The Nutcracker', which is due to shoot in the Autumn 2016. Lasse Hallström ('Chocolat', 'The Hundred-Foot Journey', 'What's Eating Gilbert Grape’)is directing, and Mark Gordon and Lindy Goldstein are producing.

Any applicants should email a recent photo and contact details to THIS CASTING IS NOW CLOSED

Summary:

Set in the 1850s in Victorian England, the film is a live action retelling of the classic tale based on the story 'The Nutcracker and the Mouse King' by E.T.A. Hoffman

Clara (Female) - aged 13-17 years

Lead role. Clever, creative and independent, Clara goes against female societal conventions of the period. At the beginning of the story she is lacking in confidence, struggling to cope with the death of her mother and trying to find her footing in the adult world. Uninterested in beauty and fashion, Clara is most herself when inventing contraptions and going on adventures; she is most comfortable in her own imagination. As she grows through the film we find her to be self sufficient, strong willed, curious, witty, inventive and ultimately confident in herself. She can be any height or ethnicity.

Roles

ZOE (13/14) – Series Regular
GENUINE NORTH AMERICAN
Our heroine Zoe is brave, kind, attractive, fun and a truly gifted horse
woman… she just doesn’t know it yet. Zoe’s always been popular, she’s always
got good grades, she’s always felt like a happy kind of person… But inside she’s
often felt like something’s missing. Being cool isn’t really a big deal for Zoe,
and she really hopes there’s more to life than shopping and sleepovers.
We are looking for a genuine NORTH AMERICAN actress with strong horse
riding skills

ROSIE (8/10) – Series Regular
GENUINE NORTH AMERICAN
Zoe’s little sister. Rosie’s on a mission to bring Hollywood glamour to England.
Being the ahh-ain’t-she-cute-sister-of-Cool-Zoe had its advantages back home,
but suddenly she’s been thrust into a world with no American Eagle outlet,
limited 4G and worst of all Zoe’s new Brit friends are not cool.
Underneath it all though, Rosie’s a vulnerable 10–year old who just wants her
parents to stay together. But she rarely lets anyone in; she’s always putting on
an act.
We are looking for a genuine NORTH AMERICAN actress. Horse riding skills
are a plus.

BECKY (13/14) – Series Regular
BRITISH
Zoe’s new best friend. Becky is a one-million-miles-per-hour, motor-mouth,
joke-machine. With ideas going through her mind all the time, her mouth often
struggles to keep up (as does everyone else at the stables).
She’s laugh-out-loud funny, but not in a ‘she-knows-it-way’. She’s cheeky and
well-meaning, but often crosses the mark. She’s firm and stands her ground,
even when proven wrong, but has the tendency to look up to others and be
misled.
We are looking for actresses with strong horse riding skills

JADE (13/14) – Series Regular
BRITISH
Zoe’s new bestfriend. Jade is a walking pony encyclopedia and a voice of
reason to counter Becky’s wilder flights of fancy. There’s nothing she can’t
explain with cold hard facts and she’s always on hand with a random or useful
horsey fact. Jade excels in science and math at school but her parents are on a
mission to make her more “rounded” by forcing her to take part in musical
theatre… They’re less interested in Jade’s sporty side, and don’t really
approve of how much time she spends at the yard. But whilst Jade’s bringing
home the A grades, they can’t really stop her.
We are looking for actresses with strong horse riding skills

PIN (13/14) – Series Regular
Behind the long silences and the brooding looks, Pin’s a kind and clever boy
with a heart of gold. He’s just not that well trained when it comes to spending
time with people.
We are looking for actors with strong horse riding skills

MARCUS (15) – Series Regular
‘Boy band gorgeous with a heart of gold’
Marcus is the golden boy of the stables and Sam’s cousin. He has a deep sense
of responsibility and will do anything to help make the stables a success. He’s
a talented rider, a gifted musician and he’s super good looking.
Marcus knows that the girls call him Hot Marcus, and he wishes they
wouldn’t. He just wants to focus on riding and making music, but that’s quite
hard when you’re being followed by gangs of whispering girls…
We are looking for actors with strong horse riding skills

MIA (13/14) – Series Regular
Zoe’s nemesis. Mia’s your worst nightmare. Effortlessly gorgeous, Gossip Girl
rich, and spoilt rotten, she owns five horses and the yard and the best, handsewn
pair of breeches known to man. With a bitchy put-down for any occasion,
Mia seems to take pleasure in making others feel small and, along with lifelong
BFF Susie, she rules the roost at the stables.
We are looking for actresses with strong horse riding skills

SUSIE (13) – Series Regular
Mia’s Henchwoman. Susie’s been Mia’s BFF since they were born; their mums
were in hospital together, and their bond is even more important now Mia’s
mum is no longer with us. Loyal to a fault, Susie’s always by Mia’s side and will
happily do her bidding, even if means hurting others in the process.
Being Mia’s bf requires Susie to be pretty cutting and bitchy, but she is more
emotionally aware than Mia, and in truth she’s softer. She knows why her
friend is the way she is, and she secretly feels sorry for her.

BEN (9) – Series Regular
Ben is Becky’s younger brother, and he’s the Dreamer compared to her Joker.
Ben’s got into horses a bit later than Becky, but has learnt to gallop before he
can trot. He gets himself into many a scrape much to Becky’s annoyance and
embarrassment, and she’s always having to pick up the (often literal) pieces…
