We’re holding another day for Mikayla – we’ve cast the younger role, but are still looking for the 11-12-year-old who can be mixed race Irish/Chinese, an Irish girl who might be able to pass as slightly mixed race or other nationalities who may have the right look. I’m allocating slots for Wed afternoon in the Factory now. Full details below:

We are scouting for a child to act in our short drama film Mikayla about a deadly assassin android made in the form of a mixed race Chinese-caucasian girl. This film is written and will be directed by Ciarán Foy, the acclaimed Irish director of new feature film Citadel and the award-winning short The Faeries of Blackheath Woods. The film is part of the Signatures short film scheme run by the Irish Film Board.

We are looking for an 11-12-year-old girl with the confidence and natural charisma to perform on film. As the adult central character Mikayla is played by a UK actress who is a quarter Chinese, we are looking for girls who are partially Chinese or Irish girls who could pass as mixed race to play the younger version of Mikayla. There is no acting experience required.

Any parent who wants to contact me can do so by e-mailing or calling me to arrange an appointment in advance of our open day this Wednesday April 18th 2pm-6pm at the Factory, 35A Barrow Street, Dublin 4 (Just off Pearse street beyond Grand Canal Quay; map at www.thefactory.ie).
