Warners is holding an open casting call for girls between the ages of 8 and 12 to play Modesty, a “haunted young girl with an inner strength and stillness,” the studio said. Modesty has “an ability to see deep into people and understand them.”
Auditions are being held at 9 a.m. Saturday in London’s Excel Centre Hall. Applicants must be available for shooting dates between August and January.
