British girls vie for co-star chance in Harry Potter spin-off movie

J.K. RowlingThousands of girls queued to audition in east London on Saturday for a chance to co-star in the planned Harry Potter spin-off movie “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”
Whoever gets the role will star alongside Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne, who will portray “magizoologist” Newt Scamander.
Some girls queued from as early as 3 a.m. for the auditions, having traveled from all over Britain to the ExCel exhibition centre in London’s Docklands, in the hope of entering J.K. Rowling’s world of magic in the eagerly anticipated film.
Movie group Warner Bros and the film makers are looking for a girl aged between eight and 12 to take on the role of Modesty, a character they describe as “a haunted young girl with an inner strength and stillness.”
Modesty also “has an ability to see deep into people and understand them.” — Reuters
