Star Wars: Episode 7 Casting Is Now Accepting Video Submissions
Did you see footage of the crazy lines outside the first location for the Star Wars: Episode VII open casting call in the UK this weekend? Did you think, damn my luck, I would be perfect to play one of these beautiful/handsome and smart lead roles, but I live nowhere near the UK? Well, I've got good news for you my friend. Casting has now been opened up to include video submissions, which means no matter where you reside on this planet of ours, you can have your shot and sci-fi infamy.
In addition to video submissions, the project's open casting call has been expanded to include a series of Meet & Greet opportunities with Casting Director Maryellen Aviano. Aviano will be touring the US until 24th November and you can view Meet & Greet locations as well as video submission details right here.
The casting call is looking for two roles, one female and one male, so read the info below and get rehearsing!
