Casting call!

Orlaith Condon

Disney is casting for its new movie and is on the hunt for someone Irish.

Artemis Fowl is expected to be released in cinemas in 2019 and is based on the novel series of the same name by Eoin Colfer.

The best-selling series tells the story of 12-year-old Artemis who develops a plan to extort gold from the Fairy People. However, things don’t go quite to plan, leaving Artemis mixed up with some pretty dangerous creatures.

Well, Disney is now looking for its Artemis.

“At first glance, Artemis could be mistaken for a rather ordinary child with little athletic ability, but his eyes reveal a flickering of intelligence,” reads Disney’s casting call.

“Inquisitive and possessing both academic and emotional intelligence, he is highly perceptive and good at reading people.

“Most importantly, Artemis is warm-hearted and has a great sense of humour; he has fun in whatever situation he is in and loves life.”

Disney is looking for boys between the ages of nine and 13, under 5’3” who have or can do an Irish accent.

Sounds like someone you know? Well, good because they’ll be holding auditions in Galway on September 29 and 30, in Dublin on October 1, and in Cork on October 14.

To be considered, you have to send a recent photo, your age, and height to Emily at [email protected] by Monday, September 18.

Best of luck!
