SISTERS (CHILD ROLES) (Female, 7–11 years)
Youngest female sibling should be 7 or 8 years old.
Older female sibling should be 10 or 11 years old.

ARTIST MUST BE BASED IN LONDON OR WILLING TO BE BOOKED AS LONDON-BASED, IDEALLY WITHIN 30-MINS OF MARYLEBONE TRAIN STATION. PLEASE FLAG BASE IN THE COMMENTS WHERE THEY ARE BASED. This role shoots at night, finishing at midnight, so as close to location as they can be, the better!

MUST BE AVAILABLE between the 29th August and the 4th September when this role is currently scheduled to shoot.

A lovely action moment to open the film. The small, adorable, young child (7yo or 8yo) gazes at the sky expectantly with their tongue out. The snowflake drifts towards their tongue. Suddenly their sibling (10yo/11yo) barges them aside and swallows the snowflake instead. The younger child outraged calls out “Mum!”

Looking for REAL SIBLINGS or COUSINS who can self-tape together.

Our youngest sister should have a beautiful, angelic face full of expression and wonder. Our older sibling should have a cheeky, mischievous quality.

Looking for suggestions of siblings who are White, Asian or Black, but not those who are of mixed-heritage this time as we have already done that search.

Accent: London/Neutral

Ice Cream Kid runs over to the Ice Cream Van to ask for a 99 and is somewhat non-plussed to find Geoff selling 5-kilo Frozen Turkeys instead… Ice Cream Kid calls Geoff a ‘weirdo’.

This child should have a very interesting and memorable look. Perhaps they have something individual about them? Lots of freckles, bright ginger hair, missing teeth, chubby cheeks etc. Characterful and expressive!

Looking for suggestions who are White, Asian or Black, but not those who are of mixed-heritage this time as we have already done that search.

Accent: Native Manchester/Northern (please mention their base and natural accent in the comments when suggesting)
