Kids Casting Call Announced For Featured Roles On “Popular 80’s Netflix Series”

On the heels of yesterday’s jaw-dropping Super Bowl teaser trailer for the second season of the Netflix treasure Stranger Things, we now have more news which may or may not be in regards to one of the best things to come out of the movie streaming service in recent memory.

The casting call bulletin site Project Casting, has just put out an announcement per Casting TaylorMade, that casting directors are looking for particular kid actors for “very featured roles for a popular Netflix series set it in the 1980s.” They aren’t specifically stating that is indeed for Stranger Things. However, it’s a bit to hard to convince me otherwise that it isn’t for the nostalgia-induced, series smash.

 

The casting directors are looking for kid actors that fit their criteria in the state of Georgia in particular. Which in the case you may not know, Jackson, Georgia serves as the stand-in backdrop for the faux city of Hawkins, Indiana in Stranger Things. And again with season two, the cast and crew are returning to the city that sits about 50 miles southeast of Atlanta for filming. Also note, many times these casting call companies refrain from mentioning the name of the project when putting out bulletins for roles in an attempt to garner a more authentic audition in the selection process.

 

Per the announcement, casting directors are searching for Indian girls ages 8 to 10 years old with acting experience, along with identical toddler girls. The site notes that filming will take place in early February.

 

Here’s the rundown in specifics:

1) INDIAN GIRL AGE 8-10 YEARS OF AGE
MORE DETAILS WILL BE GIVEN IF WE ARE INTERESTED IN AUDITIONING YOUR CHILD.
ACTING EXPERIENCE IS A PLUS (BUT NO NECESSARY), PLEASE INCLUDE ANY EXPERIENCE OR TRAINING IN YOUR EMAIL.
