Rumor: Open Casting Calls For Episode VII Being Held in America and Online

By: Dominic Jones

Seems the U.K aren't the only lucky ones when it comes to open casting calls for Star Wars Episode VII.  The company Cast It Talent has reportedly set up open casting calls in several U.S cities for the same roles as those being held in the U.K.  Not only that, but if there's no casting call in your city (or country for that matter) you can submit a video audition via their site (details on how to go about that, can be found there as well).

For the in-person casting call, casting director Maryellen Aviano, whose credits include Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Avengers, Inception, The Hanover Part III, and Man of Steel.  That certainly sounds like someone Lucasfilm and Disney would trust with the casting of Episode VII.

The roles are:

Seeking: Young woman to play 17-18 Years old. Must be beautiful, smart and athletic. Open to all ethnicities (including bi- and multi-racial).


Was quite young when she lost her parents. With no other family, she was forced to maker her way alone in a tough, dangerous town. Now 17 she has become street smart and strong. She is able to take care of herself using humor and guts to get by.
Always a survivor, never a victim, she remains hopeful that she can move away from this harsh existence to a better life. She is always thinking of what she can do to move ahead.

Seeking: Young man to play 19-23 years old. Must be handsome, smart and athletic. Must be over 18.


Has grown up without a father's influence. Without the model of being a man, he doesn't have the strongest sense of himself. Despite this, he is smart, capable and shows courage when it is needed. He can appreciate the absurdities in life and understands you can't take life too seriously.

While these may not sound like Star Wars characters, it is assumed by many that these are placeholder names and situations to hide the fact that this is Star Wars (although the fact that you are reading this now is proof that that didn't work out so well!)  In addition you can view the script for the scene to be preformed at these open casting calls!

As always this is just a rumor until confirmed (or denied) by Lucasfilm or Disney.
