Would you like to take a trip to a galaxy far, far away? That dream will become reality for two people if they can leave the right impression on the Episode VII casting director. Read the descriptions of the two roles after the jump to see if you could be working with J.J. Abrams in the coming months.
On November 14, casting director Maryellen Aviano will be in Chicago looking for two young actors to fill roles in the upcoming
reboot restart Star Wars film. The casting call will be at Park West in Lincoln Park from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. if you are interested in attending.
One role is for a female between the ages of 17-18 for a character named Rachel. Rachel is described as a “street smart, independent, athletic, natural beauty” and open to “all ethnicities, multi & bi-racial.”
The second is a male role with an age range of 19-23 and is described as “athletic, smart, handsome” and “independent spirited.” The character is named Thomas and has “grown up without a father’s influence. Without the model of being a man, he doesn’t have the strongest sense of himself.”
Neither one of these roles sounds like an offspring of Jar-Jar Binks, so we can clearly count it as a loss, right?
J.J. Abrams and crew will roll cameras during the first quarter of 2014, with an official release date set for December 18, 2015.
