"Star Wars: Episode IX" now casting new supporting role 'Karina'
I am very excited to announce that there is now a new female supporting role being cast in the Walt Disney Studios/Lucasfilm feature film "Star Wars: Episode IX". This is for the role of "Karina", a female who can portray between 27 - 35 years of age, a "younger Charlize Theron type with street smarts and a sharp wit". The casting directors are open to any ethnicity, but they are requesting that the actors submitted have a good sense of humor, solid comedic timing and a strong voice. Again, I would be extremely happy if one of my feature film actor submission service clients booked this role. It is another chance of a lifetime in my opinion. If anyone is interested in performing a self-made video audition for this role, you can sign up to be submitted to the casting directors. The fee for my submission service is a one time sign-up fee of $99 (this fee is also for submissions to other feature films for one year). After your sign-up fee is received, you will then email me your photos (can be cell phone photos) and general information (contact information, age, height, weight, any special skills or activities, etc.) You will then be submitted to my casting director friend and contact for "Star Wars: Episode IX". Once the casting director contacts you, they will provide a script segment for you to create a self-made audition video. You will then email that video back to the casting director, and the process will continue with a live Skype audition. I need to get the submissions in for this role as soon as possible, so message me here at my Verified Facebook Profile (https://www.facebook.com/alanbaltes) or email me at email@example.com if you are an actor interested in auditioning.
Note: This role has just been written in to the story by J.J. Abrams. The previous role of "Mara" has is no longer in the story, and the role of "Caro" has been downgraded from lead role to supporting role.
