Well just being funny – it is too early in the morning, but still it seems the film makers behind Harry Potter movies have put out a casting call for two “asian” girls in England. (Where Asian means Indians – go figure, given that there are not many Asians there except the brownies…. another rant, another day.)
bq. These two Asian girls aged 13-16 to be Ron Weasley and the young wizard’s dates in the film. The chosen pair will have scenes when they accompany the famous Hogwart’s students to a school ball.
bq. An open audition for the roles of Parvati and Padma in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is being held at Pineapple Studios in Langley Street, near Covent Garden, from 10am-3pm on Sunday.
bq. Casting agent Shaheen Baig, who has held auditions for the part around the country, says she is looking for a pair of girls “who have fantastic chemistry.”
Those in London, good luck and hopefully see you in the movie soon. Full report here.
