A casting company is on the hunt for a youngster to star alongside Hollywood superstar Robert Pattinson in a new film.

No acting experience is required for the role and Des Hamilton Casting, in Clerkenwell Road, Finsbury, hopes to find the fledgling actor from within Islington’s boundaries.

The yet-to-be-named film centres around events in the boy’s childhood, and the director is looking for a boy aged eight or nine with an “androgynous” look to play the lead role.

British actor Robert Pattinson, best known for his role as Edward Cullen in the film franchise Twilight – based on the books by Stephenie Meyer – will also be starring in the film.

Casting associate Elan Jones said: “It will be a great opportunity for whoever lands the part as it will be a major film with an up and coming director.

“In the film the boy has a French mother and British father so any knowledge of French is a bonus, but not essential.

“Auditions will be taking place over the coming weeks.”
