The BBC are currently casting two new leading child roles for the next series of CBBC show JAMIE JOHNSON, about young footballers playing for their school club and academies, and the life lessons they experience. The show demonstrates good sportsmanship and the level of commitment/good behaviour needed to play for academies.
The show is one of the highest rating shows in children’s television and has attracted guest appearances from famous sports stars such as Steven Gerard, Gary Lineker, Ruud Gullit and more. Watch the show here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/b08lvm1b?suggid=b08lvm1b
The show will film in 2 x 5 week blocks with 1 week break in the middle to allow children to register at school.
During term-time all cast are tutored, provided by production, as well as all accommodation, food and of course there is a fee involved
We are looking for people who fit either of these descriptions:
- Girls who look 11-12 years old and are very good at football
- Boys who look 11-12 years old and have good football skills – confident and funny
