Casting Call For Gurinder Chadha's Angus, Thongs And Full-Frontal Snogging

A lead actress aged between 12 and 16 is sought for Gurinder Chadha's next film, an adaptation of Louise Rennison's Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging. Four open auditions are coming up - one of them here in Oxford. No surprise - this place is crawling with theatre school wannabes.

Chadha's got a good track record with teen actresses who then go on to be big news (see Bend it Like Beckham for one and a half examples) so maybe this will be the beginning of another rapid ascendancy to international fame/treacherous slip into anorexia and depression (delete as applicable).

to the author of this article, anorexia is not something to be taken lightly, please do not use it so carelessly next time, it kills hundreds of girls each year and is a repulsive disease.

Hey I thought it was ok. We all know who you were refering too. coughkieracough.

Anyways I am excited for this movie to come out. I actually read this book when I was 13 & now I am 21. Of course the chicks that are going to play these roles are ones that didn't grow up with the books.

It's messed up I can't audition. I do look 16 though :)
